Quotes from 2013

As I wrote about in a previous post, I utilize a paper planner (a Moleskine squared).  One of my goals, as I begin each year, is to note quotes or inspirational thoughts.

Below are some of my favorites from 2013.
"Don't postpone joy."  Joyce Mills

If you were given 3-6 months of paid vacation from work, how would you utilize the time?
"No civilization has ever been destroyed because citizens got too much truth."  Robert McKee

Is it the mountain that needs to move or you?

"Logic is the instrument of demonstration, intuition is that of invention."  Henri PoincarĂ©

"Most people, in fact, will not take the trouble in finding out the truth, but are much more inclined to accept the first story they hear"  Thucydides

Don't take anything personally.

"Create a vision that inspires the team to work as if the fate of civilization rests on getting its project out the door."  Amy Fries, Daydreams At Work

"The writer's object should be to hold the reader's attention.  I want the reader to turn the page and keep on turning until the end.  This is accomplished only when the narrative moves steadily ahead, not when it comes to a weary standstill, overloaded with every item uncovered in the research."  Barbara Tuchman, historian
Whether on paper or electronically, I encourage you to save quotes you come across during your journeys.
