Turn Quotes

Do not turn back when you are just at the goal.

Publilius Syrus

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

HELEN DENDY BOSANQUET

Reviewers are usually people who would have been poets, historians, biographers, etc., if they could; they have tried their talents at one or the other, and have failed; therefore they turn critics.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Our ideals, laws and customs should be based on the proposition that each generation, in turn, becomes the custodian rather than the absolute owner of our resources and each generation has the obligation to pass this inheritance on to the future.

Charles A. Lindbergh

For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors, and laugh at them in our turn?

Jane Austen

It is . . . sometimes easier to head an institute for the study of child guidance than it is to turn one brat into a decent human being.
