“For true success ask yourself these questions:
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.
