kaltopsyd profile image

kaltopsyd 6 years ago from Trinidad originally, but now in the USA

I don't know. They're so many to choose from. I'm going to look at them again and ATTEMPT to pick one.

Okay, here's the one: "Success is a journey not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome."

It was between that and two others:

"Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday."

"One has to remember that every failure can be a stepping stone to something better."

Thanks again... now I'm off to update my FB status. :-)

Loved your quotes. You have reminded me of the power of a few well chosen words. Randolph Churchill said "Ulster will fight and Ulster will be right", and resigned a country to civil unrest that lasted many decades. Encouragement must be tempered with wisdom.

If you like quotes you should check out my blog sometime. I have a list of quotes of myself, that is, quotes of things I myself said or wrote in which I felt were worth taking note of or sharing. Either due to their wise, funny, or peculiar nature. A lot of them were epiphanies. When I feel inspired to, I will also write a hub.
