“Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.” – To achieve something truly amazing requires a good idea or a small amount of creativity, but mostly it’s down to a lot of hard work.
“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realise how close they were to success when they gave up.” – People often fail in life because they give up too soon. “There is great value in disaster. All our mistakes are burned up and we can start anew.” – Disasters aren’t necessarily bad. They erase your mistakes and you have the chance to start again.
I find the first quote the most inspirational because it suggests that everyone has the potential to achieve something really great if they are willing to put in the effort.
