QOTW: quotes of the week

Just a short post cuz i got lots of coursework due soon and exams coming up so i haven’t got much spare time to blow so i created QOTW 😉

QOTW is quotes that really spoke to me and influenced the choices/slight changes & improvements i consciously made in my life this week 🙂

“We all must suffer one of two pains in life – the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The choice is yours!” – AR Bernard

“Discipline attracts opportunity.” – AR Bernard

“Error on the side of action, not negligence.”

“Wherever your treasure is, there the desire of your heart will also be.” – Matthew 6:21

“Hold everything in your hands lightly, otherwise it hurts when God pries your fingers open.” – Corrie Ten Boom

“Think big, grow deep, start small.. And that’s how progress is made” – My dearest mommy

“Praise involves sacrifice. You have put aside your own feelings … & keep declaring His greatness!” – Kong Hee

“Just believe in yourself. There is nothing more deeply attractive then confidence. Don’t look for beauty in your clothing, your appearance, or through other people. Find it in yourself, because there is no one like you and that’s wonderful. Be who you were made to be, be you.” – Matthew Lowden

“Only those who value & understand themselves can value & understand others.” – Danny Silk

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore is not an act, but a habit.” -Aristotle

“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Character is what you really are. Reputation is what people say you are.” -Wooden

“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.” -Mary Radmacher

“The world belongs not to the one who fits in… but to the one who stands out.” -Gail Blanke

I’ll include a few of my favourite Maya Angelou quotes in remembrance of this amazing woman:

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou

“One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.” –Maya Angelou

All great achievements require time.” –Maya Angelou

“You can’t forgive without loving. And I don’t mean sentimentality. I don’t mean mush. I mean having enough courage to stand up and say, ‘I forgive. I’m finished with it.'” –Maya Angelou

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” –Maya Angelou

Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.” –Maya Angelou

&& here’s a grounded quote (punny) i found at the GoMa this weekend when Mark came over to Scotland for a wee visit! One of my fav galleries here in Glasgow 🙂


Hope at least one of em spoke to you too!
