Forward Quotes

Don't look forward to the day you stop suffering, because when it comes you'll know you're dead.

Tennessee Williams

For humanity has moved forward to an era when wrong and slavery are being displaced, and reason and justice are being recognized as the rule of life.

Mary Ashton Livermore

There's a plane flying over me and I'm looking forward to being able to relax and not worry about the weather or boat speed.

Ellen MacArthur

The work of the individual still remains the spark that moves mankind forward.

Igor Sikorsky

The greatest loss of time is delay and expectation, which depend upon the future. We let go the present, which we have in our power, and look forward to that which depends upon chance, and so relinquish a certainty for an uncertainty.

Seneca

Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom

Buddha

Regret, which is guilt without the neurosis, enables us ... to move forward instead of back.

Jane Adams

In Las Vegas, everything takes place as if the absence of any sense of belonging to the environment entailed a hypertrophied sensitivity to details. There is no possibility of visual escape into perceptual horizons of indeterminateness (left-right, forward-back, near-far), but, instead, only the pregnancy of enlarged, exaggerated and highlighted forms. Behind each lit-up sign no space is hollowed out, no incipient world. Everything is there, everything is flat. As thick as the giant advertising billboards that ubiquitously package it, loading it with nave and comic symbols, crude, schematic messages, Las Vegas is a city of literal superficiality.

BRUCE BEGOUT

All change is not growth as all movement is not forward.

Ellen Glasgow

A diplomat is a person who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you actually look forward to the trip.

Caskie Stinnett

The horizon leans forward, offering you space to place new steps of change.

Maya Angelou

Moving On has allowed me to know who I am and to be present in all that I do. I take this forward in my work and in my personal relationships. It is a powerful program and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to move on with their life.

Lou

The point in history at which we stand is full of promise and danger. The world will either move forward toward unity and widely shared prosperity - or it will move apart.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

The Secret's" message is to let go of all blame because it only destroys you, and to move forward with hope, love, compassion and kindness.

Bb

It is the Law that any difficulties that can come to you at any time, no matter what they are, must be exactly what you need most at the moment, to enable you to take the next step forward by overcoming them. The only real misfortune, the only real tragedy, comes when we suffer without learning the lesson.

Emmet Fox

All change is not growth; as all movement is not forward.

Ellen Glasgow

Life swings like a pendulum backward and forward between pain and boredom

Arthur Schopenhauer

Boredom is what you fight. Constant, ever-present boredom. So you learn to look forward to small things. Sunlight glimpsed through a cloud, an extra piece of pie or candy, good thread to sew your blouse, a ribbon to wear in your hair.

Valerie W. Wesley

Unseen buds, infinite, hidden well, Under the snow and ice, under the darkness, in every square or cubic inch, Germinal, exquisite, in delicate lace, microscopic, unborn, Like babies in wombs, latent, folded, compact, sleeping; Billions of billions, and trillions of trillions of them waiting, (On earth and in the sea -- the universe -- the stars there in the heavens.) Urging slowly, surely forward, forming endless, And waiting ever more, forever more behind.

Walt Whitman

Beware of rashness, but with energy, and sleepless vigilance, go forward and give us victories.

Abraham Lincoln

Talent without discipline is like an octopus on roller skates. There's plenty of movement, but you never know if it's going to be forward, backwards, or sideways.

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats. Yet each struggle, each defeat, sharpens your skills and strengths, your courage and your endurance, your ability and your confidence and thus each obstacle is a comrade-in-arms forcing you to become better… or quit. Each rebuff is an opportunity to move forward; turn away from them, avoid them, and you throw away your future.

Og Mandino

One fails forward toward success.

Charles F. Kettering

Enduring setbacks while maintaining the ability to show others the way to go forward is a true test of leadership.

Nitin Nohria
