I recently came across an amazing site – BrainyQuote.com – with quotes from thousands of people from all walks of life. Here are a select few I often turn to when in need of inspiration:

Goethe: “Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”

Salvador Dali: “At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since.”

Salvador Dali: “I don’t do drugs. I am drugs.”

Napoleon Bonaparte: “Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.”

Bobby Kennedy: “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.”

Shakespeare, Henry V:
If we are marked to die, we are enough
To do our country proud, and if to live,
The fewer men the greater share of honor.
Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But in it we shall be remember’d;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.
