Thoughts for Thursday--18

Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Readers may respond by either commenting on the quotes I put forward or contributing a quote of their own. Leave it in the comments or a link to your quote in the linky. Whoever comes up with the best one will get some swag and be entered to win a bigger prize later on!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is Goals!!! (I thought it'd be appropriate what with most of us making New Year's Resolutions in the past week or two. :D)

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.--Les Brown

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.--T.S. Eliot

I find it fascinating that most people plan their vacation with better care than they do their lives. Perhaps that is because escape is easier than change.--Jim Rohn

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.--Jim Rohn

People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals--that is, goals that do not inspire them.--Tony Robbins

We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal and then leap into the darkness to our success--Henry David Thoreau

What do you think? Which quote is your favorite? Do you have one to contribute?


  1. They're all great quotes, but this one really stuck with me: Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.--T.S. Eliot

    How true that is! I want to print it out and tape it somewhere. :)

  2. I love the stars quote! It's one of my favorites!

  3. I like the Robbins quote. I had to read it twice and really ponder it. Thanks for sharing those!

  4. Great quotes: just thought I'd add one

    "They all laughed at Louis Armstrong when he said he was gonna go to the Moon. Now he's up there laughing at them" - Chazz Michael Michaels, Blades Of Steel
