Great Entrepreneurial and Motivational Quotes

I just got a chance to check out the latest Entrepreneur magazine and some of these quotes were in the Editors note, which I thought were pretty good. They were submitted by other readers over the past few months.

So here we go:

“Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t, so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.”

“To love what you do and feel that it matters – how could anything be more fun?”

“It is imagination that lights the slow fuse of the possible.”

“I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but by the number of times I succeed. And the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times I can fail and keep trying!”

“If it hasn’t been done, it can be done. If someone else has done it, you can do it. But – is it worth it?”

“There is no such thing as failure, only feedback.”

“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.”

“A leader must accomplish the difficult task of getting those on the team to believe that ‘we’ supersedes ‘me.'”

“Some people dream of great accomplishments, while others stay awake and do them.”

“When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on.”

“If you are not at the front of the dog sled team, the view never changes.”

“Illegitimis non carborundum. That’s Latin for: Don’t let the bastards grind you down.”

What are your favorite quotes? What inspire/motivate you?
