Motivational Quotes

Happiness depends on ourselves. – Aristotle

Motivational Poem

The Victor

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win but think you can’t,
It’s almost a cinch you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will.
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are out classed, you are.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of your-self before
You can ever win the prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.
                      C.W. Longenecker

will ultimately fail. – Woodrow Wilson

chances are it will burn very briefly. – Stephen R. Covey

Man never made any material as resilient as the human spirit. – Bernard Williams

Poem

ALONE    

I tripped and fell
I picked up the stone
It said, “you know…
you’re still alone.”
I looked into the puddle
and saw no reflection
I thought to myself
it must be regression
I saw the brick wall
and hopped it clear
come on… it’s me
I have no fear
It’s just a journey
amongst many souls
I’m but one man
trying to fill in the holes
I guess being alone forever
isn’t all so bad
cause for all the bad times
I remember the good one I had
                                      – D.P.
