Ten quotes that inspire

September 12, 2012 – Once upon a time, I wrote a newsletter for the real estate industry that included a thought-provoking or inspirational quote each month. Here are some of my favorites that I used over the years, in the form of a top ten list:

10.  “I try to take it one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.” ― Ashleigh Brilliant

9.    “I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.” — Michael Jordan

8.    “All generalizations are false, including this one.” — Mark Twain 

7.    “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” — Walt Disney

6.   “Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.” — Oscar Wilde 

5.   “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” — Confucius 

4.   “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?” — John Wooden

3.   “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” — Soren Kierkegaard

2.   “I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.” — Pablo Picasso 

1.   “One is never fortunate or as unfortunate as one imagines.” — Francois de La Rochefoucauld
