Thursday Thirteen #88 Quote Worthy Edition

Greetings, Kittens!

I've often mentioned how much I love quotes for T13, but I can't remember the last time I posted any. I chose some great words on success and failure, as a nod to Veterans Day and Remembrance Day on 11/11/11, to honor the brave men and women who gave their all defending both countries, and the ideas of freedom and perseverance as a whole. I give you 13 Quotes on Seeing It Through!


1. Failure is the opportunity to begin again, more intelligently. ~ Henry Ford

2. I have not failed. I’ve just found ten thousand ways that won’t work. ~ Thomas Edison

3. Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. ~ Thomas Edison

4. Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new. ~Albert Einstein

5. It’s not how many times you fall down, it’s how many times you get back up. ~ Unknown

6. Eighty percent of success is showing up. ~ Woody Allen

7. Reach for the moon; even if you miss, you will land among the stars. ~ Unknown

8. Some people skate to the puck. I skate to where the puck is going to be. ~ Wayne Gretzky

9. When you are falling from a mountain, you may as well attempt to fly. ~ Babylon 5

10. The Obstacle is the Path. ~ Zen Proverb

11. Success is not the destination, it’s the journey. ~ Unknown

12. Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new. ~ Albert Einstein

13. If at first you don’t succeed, try doing it the way you were told. ~ Unknown

And in honor of all the unknown quotes, and to prove politicians weren’t always like they are now: It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit. ~ Harry S. Truman

Love these quotes. My mom always told me "Nothing worthwhile is every easy" and she was so totally right.

Your mom is a wise woman! :)

Love 8,9 and 10 the best! The Einstein quote is on there twice. http://looseleafntoes.com
Nov. 11th, 2011 12:41 am (UTC)
Yay, someone noticed! That was intentional. I think Einstein would have appreciated it. *grin*

Some good quotes, all ones i have seem before. (BTW, numbers 4 and 12 are the same! Particularly liked that one, did you? *G*)
Nov. 11th, 2011 12:42 am (UTC)
It was so nice, I used it twice! That's two folks that noticed! Yay :)

I used to use #2 as my tagline. Love the last one.

Re: Alice Audrey
I think it would make a great sig line too! :)

I love the one that ended up on a football sweatshirt I got this year. It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.
Love these!
Nov. 11th, 2011 12:44 am (UTC)
That's a good one, save for not liking the idea of dogs fighting...*grin*

Re: If I ever get a tattoo
There are a few I think would make great tattoos, but #2 would definitely keep you in the right mindset, right *grin*
