Monday Morning Motivationals


For all of his faults (and there were many of them) and for
all the craziness in his life (and there was lots of it),
Howard Hughes knew the power of focus. He could say a
clear, resounding YES! to the things that interested him.
Even when it meant ignoring enormous pressures and losing
millions of dollars and being labeled "irresponsible," he
could concentrate on a FEW THINGS and achieve incredible
results. He knew his priorities, even when the rest of the
world thought he was crazy. We can learn from that.


"Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream
things that never were and ask why not."
-- George Bernard Shaw --

"The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human
being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind!"
-- William James --

"Inspiration grows into full-scale creation through
persistence and imagination."
-- Carol Lloyd --

"Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace.
The soul that knows it not, knows no release from little things."
-- Amelia Earhart --
