For a while now I’ve had a few inspirational quotes stored in the notes on my phone. The only time I really look at them, is when I’m without Wi-Fi or a 3G connection, so boredom kicks in and I go through things that don’t require the internet. Once again this week, for a day, I was without the internet, and it got me thinking about the quotes that I had kept for a while now. These days, every second post on tumblr is a quote, whether it be from a celebrity, or just a saying that has stuck over time. So since I’m always seeing words of wisdom, I forget to acknowledge, and appreciate them. Just like if you worked in a art gallery, you might forget your surroundings and the amazing artworks on the walls. I decided to fix this dilemma by starting a notebook filled with quotes. And I couldn’t think of a better cover for my “book of quotes” than The Beatles crossing Abbey Road.
So here are the first four quotes of my new quote book, all from four hard working men. (I now realise that the first page all referencing men might be a bad reflection on my. Don’t worry, I love Tina Fey and Grace Helbig)
Don’t hesitate. Do it now. – Walt Disney
A man is a success if he gets up in the morning, and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do. – Bob Dylan
Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen. – Conan O’Brien
I’m here to drag people’s dreams through the mud so I can fulfill mine. – Tony Vlachos
