favourite quotations


I’m a sucker for a great quotation. But instead of sticking one in a blog post, I thought I’d gather them together in one place. Here are some of my favourites. What quotations have you read which resonate with you or seem to be speaking directly about your life?

  • “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value”. [Albert Einstein]
  • “You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step”. [Martin Luther King]

  • “The way to wealth is as plain as the way to market. It depends chiefly on two words, industry and frugality: that is, waste neither time nor money, but make the best use of both. Without industry and frugality nothing will do, and with them everything”. [Benjamin Franklin]

  • “When we bring this consciousness to our choices about money and use our resources – money, time or talents – to take a stand for what we believe in [or how we want to live our lives], we come alive.
