What a great idea! The Ning Directory is holding a quotable quotes contest. Five entries will enter you in a drawing to get a promotional, customized side menu bar. Here are my five quotes:

First is  a motivational slogan that I’ve previously posted on BBS – “What would you attempt to do if you knew that you could not fail?”


Everyday I get up I ask myself, “is this what I want to do for the next ten year?’ If the answer is no too many times in a row, then I know its time for a new career!

On the same note

One of Roz Savage’s inspirational quotes: ”

“Be mindful of the link between present action and desired future outcome. Ask yourself: if  I repeat today’s actions 365 times, will I be where I want to be in a year?”

Here’s one of the classic Devil Dog/Sports slogans:

Its not the size of the dog in the fight. Its the size of the fight in the dog!



One quote that sticks out in my mine is from the movie “The Last Castle”.

General Irwin (Robert Redford) is talking to Yates, another inmate with the potential to betray him and says,

“This man (the sadistic commander of the prison) is going to you because he sees the worst in you. He’s going to play for the worst. I want to see the best.”

He then entrusts Yates with information that could be used to betray him.

At first I thought that it was silly quoting a line from a movie. But then, I read an interview with Indra K. Nooyi, Pepsi’s CEO. She follows the same philosophy.
