Inspirational quotes are popular because we see reflected in the wise words of great minds validation of who we feel we are and motivation for whom we want to become.
Each month Gary Blair, President and owner of i24 Call Management Solutions publishes a newsletter containing his favourite quote ‘gems’.
Welcome November – the month during which …
– the Erie and Suez Canals opened
– Lincoln gave his famous Gettysburg address
– we passed GO in Monopoly for the first time
– push-button phones were first introduced
– King Tutankhamen’s tomb was opened, and
– Toulouse-Lautrec, Mark Twain & Winston Churchill were born.
So whether you celebrate it as November or as Movember, here are a few “Inspirational Gems” to get it off to a great start!
And the thought I’d like to leave you with this month is:
“Let me explain a couple of things.
Time is short. That’s the first thing.
For the weasel, time is a weasel.
For the hero, time is heroic.
For the whore, time is just another trick.
If you’re gentle, your time is gentle.
If you’re in a hurry, time flies.
Time is a servant if you are its master.
Time is your god if you are its dog.
We are the creators of time, the victims of time, and the killers of time.
Time is timeless.
That’s the second thing.
You are the clock.”
