I love quotes!!

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

M L King.

@Rev That looks similar to the challenge of telling lies - remembering what was said before, and if the same story was told to everyone. And if not - how sure can you be sure the paths of those recipients will never cross?

Those "rules" probably don't matter to professional/pathological liars.

My favourite little quotes are from Studio Ghibli's films.

"All I wanted to do was make something beautiful."
~The Wind Rises

"Whenever someone creates something with all of their heart,then the creation is given a soul."
~The cat Returns

"Once you do something, you never forget.Even if you can't remember it."
~Spirited Away

I also love the book The Alchemist. There are many inspiring quotes in it, very motivative.
"when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it."
~Paulo Coelho

Great sources! What Coelho forgot to mention, I think, is that many people want to want it, but only a select few actually want it.

I am a big Churchill fan. It took me a year reading off and on and while interjecting other books to read the 30th - page Lion series.

But when I was done I felt like I had spent an entire year with this great leader.

one point that struck me was that Churchill didn't really amount to much till AFTER he was 60. I turned 60 last year.

@Belew

Heck, Bill, Winston had done everything -- I mean EVERYTHING -- before he was 60. For you, there's still hope.

Remember, "Never give up!"

@Rev, I think it was "Never, never, never, never, never, never, never give up.

It is an oft recounted tale and it takes on several lives, having apparently been given to the graduating class at Harvard, and West Point, and Cambridge, and... well, name your favorite alma mater and the story has probably been told.

It generally goes that in his later years, bringing together his years of war-time and political experience, Sir Winston Churchill spoke to the graduating class. After a long and impressive introduction, Sir Winston walked up to the podium and paused for a long moment. Then, raising his gaze to sweep the expectant graduating class he said, "Never, never, never give up!" and immediately sat down.

Wise words, to be sure, from a wise and experienced man. But it wasn't like that at all.

First, it was not at an American university, nor at one of the world class British institutions. And it wasn't in his later years, after the war and his political career was over.

It was to the graduating class at Harrow School, his own alma mater, and it was in 1941. The memorable part from which the folk lore is derived is clearly documented:

"Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never — in nothing, great or small, large or petty — never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense."

While remarkably short for the long-winded Winston, the commencement address did go on for several more pages. Even without the lore, it is as important a speech as any he gave.

@Rev

For a while, I studied his speeches.

As you can gather from some of my other posts here, I do a lot of speaking. I want to study the greats ... learn from them ...

Churchill, undoubtedly, was one of the greats.

What I learned could fill a dozen threads or more here.

"I will prepare. And some day my time will come."

Wait, that was Lincoln ... but it could have been Churchill.

Being prepared is important. When great opportunities meet with people who have done great preparation ... you get great results.

It is a bit of a slog, but a great, and different, perspective on an important period in world history that had profound impact upon the America we live in today. Perhaps it should be mandatory reading in school; Winston Churchill's six volumes: The Second World War.
