The Original Sunday Quotes

The Original Wall of Sunday Quotes on post-its which in turn inspired the blog….

Here are the actual quotes:

“Permanence, perserverance and persistence in spire of all obstacles, discouragement and impossibilities; it is this that in all things distinguishes the strong soul from the weak.”-Thomas Carlyle

“If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time do it over?”-John Wooden

“The fight is won far away from witnesses, behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.”-Muhammad Ali

“There is no telling how many miles you will have to run while chasing a dream.”-Unknown

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising up everytime we fall.”-Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Every great and commanding movement in the annals of the world is due to the triumph of enthusiasm. Nothing great was ever achieved without it.”-Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Let me tell you the secret that has led to my goal: my strength lies solely in my tenacity.”

-Louis Pasteur

“Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy everybody would do it. But it’s not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. It’s whether you let it harden you or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it.Whether you choose to persevere.”-Barack Obama

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.”

-Winston Churchill

“Every time a football player goes to play his trade he’s got to play from the ground up-from the soles of his feet right up to his head. Every inch of him has to play. Some guys play with their heads. That’s okay. You’ve got to be smart to be number one in any business. But more importantly, you’ve got to play with your heart, with every fiber of your body. If you’re lucky enough to find a guy with a lot of head and a lot of heart he’s never going to come off the field second.”-Vince Lombardi

“But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it’s better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you’re fighting for.”-Paulo Coelho

“Of all that is good, sublimity is supreme. Succeeding is the coming together of all that is beautiful. Furtherance is the agreement of all that is just. Perseverance is the foundation of all actions.”-Lao Tzu

“Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings-always darker, emptier and simpler.”

-Friedrich Nietzsche

“You must live in the  present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land, there is no other life but this.”-Henry David Thoreau

“Remember then: there is only one time that is important-Now! It is the most important time because it is the only time when we have any power.”-Leo Tolstoy

“The dictionary is the only place that success comes before hard work. Hard work is the price we must pay for success. I think you can accomplish anything if you’re willing to pay the price.”-Vince Lombardi

“When I was young, I observed that nine of ten things I did were failures. So I did ten times more work.”-George Bernard Shaw

“Some give up their designs when they have almost reached the goal; while others, on the contrary, obtain a victory by exerting, at the last moment, more vigorous efforts than ever before.”-Herodotus

“Success means having the courage, the determination and the will to become the person you were meant to be.”-George Sheehan

“Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.”

-Og Mandino

“I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is the moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle victorious.”-Vince Lombardi

    Hi Divya – I’ve just come across your blog, and I’m excited to find another lover of quotes and lyrics! The wall of post-its is great. I’m glad you’re sharing them here on your blog.

    I love the Paulo Coelho quote. 🙂
    I’m a huge maniac about quotes as well and I loved going through your blog.
    Quotes are truly uplifting especially since it tells you that someone else has been there and done that.. and they got through it. Gives you the strength to live through the troubled phase and have hope of getting through it as well. 🙂
