Quotes Worth Remembering

I am a collector of quotes. If someone said something worthwhile in the past, the expressed wisdom can be of value in the present. In my books, I include quotes at the beginning of each chapter and throughout each book as well. When I am doing research or have come to a conclusion on my own, it always helps to know that someone else, after study or life experiences, has come to the same conclusion.

In addition to the post in July and October where I have included quotes on thrift, here is another dozen. The originators of the quotes are below the image.

  1. “Industry, thrift and self-control are not sought because they create wealth, but because they create character.”
  2. “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
  3. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”
  4. “Beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship.”
  5. “The only limits to the possibilities in your life tomorrow are the buts you use today.” 
  6. “Start by doing what is necessary; then do what is possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
  7. “So don’t be impressed with those who get rich and pile up fame and fortune. They can’t take it with them; fame and fortune all get left behind.”
  8. “The ability to buy things sometimes stamps out creativity. It can also stifle education. Even with unlimited resources at your disposal, the absence of creativity would make for a pretty dull life.”
  9. “Creativity is a poor man’s wealth.”
  10. “When your WHY is strong enough, the HOW becomes easy.”
  11. “The best inheritance a parent can give his children is a few minutes of his time each day.”
  12. “A hundred load of worry will not pay an ounce of debt.”
