the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.” [Mother Teresa]

Success Quotes

Famous Quotes Success Quotes

“I call people ‘successful’ not because they have money or their business is doing well but because, as human beings, they have a fully developed sense of being alive and are engaged in a lifetime task of collaboration with other human beings – their mothers and fathers, their family, their friends, their loved ones, the friends who are dying, the friends who are being born.

Success? Don’t you know it is all about being able to extend love to people? Really. Not in a big, capital-letter sense but in the everyday.Little by little, task by task, gesture by gesture, word by word.”

Ralph Fiennes, b.1962 Oscar-nominated British Actor

Quotations

Life Quotes – Influence Your Life

You can vitally influence your life from within by auto-suggestion. The first thing each morning, and the last thing each night, suggest to yourself specific ideas that you wish to embody in your character and personality. Address such suggestions to yourself, silently or aloud, until they are deeply impressed upon your mind.
– Grenville Kleiser

The Man Who Sold Hot Dogs

The Man Who Sold Hot Dogs

There was a man who lived by the side of the road and sold hot dogs.

He was hard of hearing so he had no radio.

He had trouble with his eyes so he read no newspapers.

But he sold good hot dogs.

He put up signs on the highway telling how good they were.

He stood on the side of the road and cried; “buy a hot dog, mister?

And people bought.

He increased his meat and bun orders.

He bought a bigger stove to take care of his trade.

He finally got his son home from college to help him out.

But then something happened.

His son said, “Father, haven’t you been listening to the radio?

Haven’t you been reading the newspapers?

There’s a big depression.

The European situation is terrible.

The domestic situation is worse.”

Where upon the father thought, “well, my son’s been to college, he reads the papers and he listens to the radio, and he ought to know.”

So the father cut down on his meat and bun orders, took down his advertising signs, and no longer bothered to stand out on the highway to sell his hot dogs.

And his hot dog sales fell almost overnight.

“You’re right, son” the father said to the boy.

“We certainly are in the middle of a great depression.”

Unique

You are unique. In all the world there is no other child exactly
Like you. In the millions of years that have passed there has never
been a child like you. And look at your body-what a wonder it is!
Your legs, your arms, your cunning fingers, the way you move! You may
be a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity
for anything. Yes, you are a marvel.

Pablo Casals

Courage

“Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.”

~ Dale Carnegie
