Using quotes can get you going again

by Julie Baird on June 11, 2010

Inspiration can be hard to find, especially as the end of the school year is so close and the sun is shining. Sometimes a good quote can give you a little boost and set you on the right path.
I have a few of my favorites listed here.

“Life is to be lived not avoided. Life is to build upon those failures that everyone has so the same mistakes are not made again. To fail is to be human, but to continue to fail without learning from past actions is to let circumstances control you. You are your own person. No one can take away from you unless you let them. Be true to yourself and keep nourishing all those things that are good and virtuous and shun those that belittle and hurt.”

-Byron Pulsifer

“Being young doesn’t mean that you don’t know anything; all it means is that you have more years to build additional knowledge.”

– Byron Pulsifer

“Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.”
– Edmund Burke

“Education’s purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.”
– Malcolm Forbes

“No one is so poor as an ignorant person.”
– Hebrew Proverb

“Education is the power to think clearly, the power to act well in the world’s work, and the power to appreciate life.”
– Brigham Young

“Only the educated are free.”
– Epictetus
