Quotable Sunday: Effort

Quotable Sunday

Hey Hey, and welcome to Quotable Sunday. A day to share quotes that make you laugh, think, inspire you or just simply love. To join in and participate all you have to do is:

~ Head over to your blog and post a new post with one or more of your favorite quotes.
~ Grab the link to your post and add it to the Mr. Linky below
~ Check out some (or all) of the other participants and leave some comment love on their posts.

Today my quotes are about Effort, in life no matter what, every single day we have to put forth effort to move forward. Whether that effort is being the bigger person and being kind to someone who has wronged you. Taking time to push through the pain and lose those last few pounds. Or it could be as simple as smiling at someone to brighten their day. No matter what every day we have to put forth effort because the day we quit putting effort forth is the day we quit moving forward.

All the so-called “secrets of success” will not work unless you do. ~Author Unknown

Much good work is lost for the lack of a little more. ~Edward H. Harriman

God gives every bird its food, but He does not throw it into its nest. ~J.G. Holland

The one thing that matters is the effort. It continues, whereas the end to be attained is but an illusion of the climber, as he fares on and on from crest to crest; and once the goal is reached it has no meaning. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Wisdom of the Sands, translated from French by Stuart Gilbert

I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it. ~Thomas Jefferson

Character is what emerges from all the little things you were too busy to do yesterday, but did anyway. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic’s Notebook, 1966

I’ve got a theory that if you give 100 percent all of the time, somehow things will work out in the end. ~Larry Bird

The difference between try and triumph is a little umph. ~Author Unknown
