Which Quote Best Describes You?

Quotes for the Wall Here
In the New World of 140 Characters, Quotes are Fast Becoming a Way of Making a Quick Statement About Ourselves; Which Quote Best Describes You?
It's going to be difficult to select just one quote that best describes yourself! Most of us have numerous quotations in our repertoire that resonate with us.
Certainly, as we grow older, a saying that meant something to us once at 20 years old may not hold the same meaning for us at 40. However, having noted all of these obstacles, take a gander at the quotations I've put together below to see if there's one particular quote that means more than an other, at this time in your life.
Of course, I've only focused on a handful of quotations to feature, but don't let that stop you
from adding the saying that you personally like best in the comments section.

Does A Quote about Success and What it Means to
Succeed Hit Home With You?

Are you the sort of person who connects with phrases and quotations about success versus failure? There are a number of them to choose from including this extremely popular quote by Michael Jordan.
"I have missed over 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. - Michael Jordan"
This particular saying says a lot about perseverance...taking 9000 shots, losing 300 games...and this is why he succeeded. Are you the sort of person who's just stubborn enough to keep going until you make it? Do you look at the failures in your life as merely temporary obstacles? Maybe you're motivated by failure?
A few of my own personal favorite quotes are:
  1.  This too shall pass
  2.  Sometimes God calms the storm, but sometimes God lets the storm rage, and calms his child
Some people find it difficult to cope with obstacles and failures; how about you? Do you believe that anything is possible if you just put your mind to it? There are a lot of questions here aren't there? Go ahead, offer up your thoughts.

  1. I love quotes and collect them all the time. Famous quotes are wonderful and often have great meaning in your life, but I also save lines from books and movies that 'speak to me' in one way or another. One of my favorites was spoken by Tony Dinozzo, a well-known fictional character on the long-running TV show NCIS. In one episode Tony said: "If you always do what you've always done, then you'll get what you always got." And come to find out, it was originally a motivational quote from Henry Ford in a way to challenge yourself in your business practices! I find that it is a line that helps me when I get stuck in a rut! :)

    1. Pat, it's an excellent quote and certainly one to remember - in fact, I'll think of that one often. Funny what you say about movie lines, hubby and I are always tossing out movie quotes during the day (usually funny ones to make each other laugh)

    2. Our family uses 'movie lines' a lot, too, Barbara. My son and a co-worker used to talk exclusively in 'movie lines'. :) There seems to be a line to fit any occasion ~ like your list of quotes here. :)

      Being hugely passionate about baseball, my very favorite baseball quote (by Bill Veeck) is "There are only two seasons - winter and Baseball." I definitely agree!

  2. I like the "I'm Possible!" quote. Every one of these makes me think. Love this post, Barbara!

  3. I love all of these quotes. I can easily think of different instances or times in my life when these quotes would have been inspirational and valid to my experience at a particular time. In fact, they would all be apropo for just about any time or day, I would simply have a particular preference in various circumstances. I could easily imagine using these quotes as reminders to keep on striving to succeed.
