Some quotes . . .

 


“For true success ask yourself these questions:

Why?

Why not?

Why not me?

Why not now?”

-          James Allen

James Allen (1864 – 1912) was a British philosophical writer known for his inspirational books, his poetry and for being a pioneer of the self-help movement.

The above is similar in intent and purpose  to two other quotes:

"If not now, when?  If not us, who?"

The above words have been spoken by various politicians – George W Romney, Robert F Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Barack Obama – and is an adaptation of a quotation by Rabbi Hillel (c 110BCE – 10BCE):  "If I am not for myself, who will be for me? And when I am for myself, what am 'I'? And if not now, when?"

The second  quote is:

“A year from now you will wish you had started today.”

-           Karen Lamb


Some good advice in the above, the hard part is putting it into action.
