“We have squandered our planet’s resources, including air and water, as though there were no tomorrow, so now there isn’t going to be one.”---Kurt Vonnegut.
Oh, wait. You said motivational. Hmmm. How about this one?
"The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible."---Arthur C. Clarke.
"I have, myself, full confidence that if all do their duty; if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made - as they ARE being made, we shall prove ourselves once again able to defend our Island home; to ride out the storm of war and to outlive the menace of tyranny; if necessary for years; if necessary alone.
At any rate, that is what we are going to try to do.
That is the resolve of His Majesty's Government - every man of them.
That is the will of Parliament and the nation.
The British Empire and the French Republic, linked together in their cause and in their need, will defend to the death their native soil, aiding each other like good comrades to the utmost of their strength.
Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail.
We shall go on to the end.
We shall fight in France.
We shall fight on the seas and oceans.
We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be.
We shall fight on the beaches.
We shall fight on the landing grounds.
We shall fight in the fields and in the streets.
We shall fight in the hills.
We shall never surrender and even if - which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old."
Winston Churchill 4th June 1940
Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, we are free at last.
~Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Writing is a solitary occupation. Family, friends, and society are the natural enemies of the writer. He must be alone, uninterrupted, and slightly savage if he is to sustain and complete an undertaking.
First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.
--Martin Niemoller (based on his original)
Stand up for what you believe in - even if you stand alone
My favourite motivational quote is, “Don’t be afraid to take a big step when required; you can’t cross a chasm in two small steps.”
LOVE PEACE FREE. Just be it. - Ambassador Butler December 15, 2010 A.D.
I'm no movie buff, but this quote rings true in anything goal I set:
"Do or do not. There is no try"
-- Master Yoda
The quote is,
"Sometimes in life you feel so blue,but someone, somewhere is not as happy as you. Far at the border when soldier sleeps,missing his loved ones he silently weeps. Somewhere a mother painfully sighs, because her newborn baby didn't open eyes. Somewhere a poor dad silently cries, seeing his son begging a bowl of rice. In an orphanage a little girl is sad when she misses her mum and dad.
When reason to smile you may not have any, just say to yourself that you are happier than many, because life is beautiful and not always blue, and someone somewhere is not as happy as you.....So always be thankful to God for everything you have and keep SMILING."
