Motivation Quotes

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Jim Rohn

Every human action, whether it has become positive or negative, must depend on motivation.

Tenzin Gyatso

The motivation part is all essential in keeping my voice, but there are the human factors of discipline.

Jerome Hines

Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.

Wayne Dyer

Motivation will almost always beat mere talent.


You can motivate by fear. And you can motivate by reward. But both of these methods are only temporary. The only lasting thing is self-motivation.

Homer Rice

We know nothing about motivation. All we can do is write books about it.

Peter F. Drucker

The secret of discipline is motivation. When a man is sufficiently motivated, discipline will take care of itself.

Sir Alexander Paterson

A champion needs a motivation above and beyond winning.

Pat Riley

There's always the motivation of wanting to win. Everybody has that. But a champion needs, in his attitude, a motivation above and beyond winning.

Pat Riley

It is well known to researchers of nature that one cannot perform even the slightest movement without motivation, meaning without somehow benefiting oneself. When, for example, one moves ones hand from the chair to the table it is because one thinks that by putting ones hand on the table one will thus receive greater pleasure. If one would not think so, one would leave one's hand on the chair for the rest of one's life without moving it an inch, all the more so concerning greater efforts.

Yehuda Ashlag

Pray that your loneliness may spur you into finding something to live for, great enough to die for.

Dag Hammarskjld

If the character has the motivation to dance round trees, then I will dance round trees. If the motivation is strong enough, then I'll fly to the moon.

Rahul Bose

You could not predict what would happen in a single instance, a single throw of the dice, a single pitch in the seventh inning, a single toss of the coin. But you could predict three out of five, four out of ten, seven out of sixteen, and to that extent chance governed everyone, all the time. Just as surely as two equals two.

John Michael Crichton

When faith and hope fail, as they do sometimes, we must try charity, which is love in action. We must speculate no more on our duty, but simply do it. When we have done it, however blindly, perhaps Heaven will show us why.

Dinah Maria Mulock Craik
