Hi everyone,
I love looking up motivational quotes. They spur me on when I feel heart broken by failure and they remind me that 'successful people' were once ordinary men that fought the odds and became who they are.

Here are some of my favorite quotes, hope you like them and hope they make you feel inspired :)

"I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody." - Bill Cosby
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the  results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”- Steve Jobs

“In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins – not through strength, but through persistence.”- Buddha
“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in that gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.” - Theodore Roosevelt
“That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well. “- Abraham Lincoln
