Excellence Quotes

The foundation of lasting self-confidence and self esteem is excellence, mastery of your work.

Brian Tracy

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.


Life's like a play; it's not the length but the excellence of the acting that matters


Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.

Pat Riley
