100+ Motivational Quotes to Inspire Your Greatness

I updated my Motivational Quotes page.

I’ve got more than 100 motivational quotes on the page to help you find your inner-fire.

It’s not your ordinary motivational quotes list.  

It’s deep and it draws from several masters of inspiration including Bruce Lee, Jim Rohn, and Zig Ziglar.

Here is a sampling of some of my personal favorite motivational quotes ..

“If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” – Bruce Lee

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Kites rise highest against the wind; not with it.” – Winston Churchill

“To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.” – Bruce Lee

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.” – Confucius

“There is no such thing as failure. There are only results.” – Tony Robbins

“When it’s time to die, let us not discover that we have never lived.” -Henry David Thoreau

“People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.” – Anonymous

“Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot.” – Jim Rohn

“If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made up of.” – Bruce Lee

For more quotes, check out my motivational quotes page.

It’s a living page and at some point I’ll do a complete revamp.

I think in the future I’ll organize it by sub-categories within motivation rather than by people.I think at the time it made sense to have words of wisdom by various folks, but now I think grouping motivational quotes by sub-categories would work much better, especially when there is such a large quantity of quotes.

    I haven't visited your Motivational Quotes page for some time but I'm glad you updated and re-posted it. And yet again, just when I needed it most.

    Thanks J.D Meier

    @ Dragan — Hopefully you find just the right words in your time of need.

    I actually have a lot of motivational articles beyond the motivational quotes. If you click on the "Articles" menu item on Sources of Insight, you'll find a "Motivation" topic, which you can use to browse through the articles.

    I did find the right words. In fact, I have a job interview next week and your post has inspired me and reminded me of my own potential and also of the great things that I have to offer others.

    My favorite page of yours is regarding the things that your Dad taught you.

    Thanks for the link to the Articles Page:
