We look forward to the time when the Power of Love

will replace the Love of Power.

Then will our world know the blessings of Peace.

Om motivation – att våga, inte ge upp och komma igen

 

Snödroppe_6

Har under många år samlat på kloka ord och citat som jag sprungit på.

Här hittar du några av dem som handlar om motivation och kämpaglöd.

Alla morgondagens blommor gömmer sig i frön som sås idag.

/Kinesiskt ordspråk

Change “I can’t”

Into “I can”

And pretty soon

You´ll say “I did”

I don´t stop when I´m tired

I stop when I´m done

Willpower is a muscle,

the more you use it,

the stronger it gets.

They told me I couldn’t,

that’s why I did.

They ignore you now,

but they’ll need you later.

Work hard in silence,

let your success be your noice.

It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.

Success is the sum of small efforts,

repeated day in and day out.

You don’t need to see the whole staircase,

just take the first step.

Great things take time.

Life is all about taking risks.

If you never take risks,

you’ll never know what you’re capable of.

You say I dream too big,

I say you think too small.

Either find a way,

or make one.

It doesn’t get easier,

you just get better.

Don’t follow your dreams,

chase them.

Att ta det första steget är den viktigaste delen av varje upptäcktsfärd

och utan tvekan den mest betydelsefulla.

/Platon

What defines us

is how well we rise after falling.

Det är inte i medvind, utan i motvind en drake lyfter.

When nothing goes right, go left.

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong

and start being positive about what could go right.

There are no short cuts to any place worth going.

A goal without a plan is just a wish.

The expert in anything

was once a beginner.

De starkaste är inte alltid de som alltid vinner,

utan de som inte ger upp när de förlorar.

Om du tänker för länge på nästa steg,

kommer du tillbringa livet ståendes på ett ben.

To be number one,

you must train like you are number two.

/Maurice Greene

Motivation is what gets you started.

Habit is what keeps you going.

/Jim Rohn

Few people get better with criticism;

most respond to encouragement instead.

/Sir Alex Ferguson

A good laugh and a long sleep

are the two best cures for anything.

Citat om livet

Citat_4

Ge mig kraft att förändra det jag kan,

tålamod att acceptera det jag inte kan förändra

och vishet nog att inse skillnaden.

If you´re not prepared to be wrong,

You´ll never come up with anything original.

/Ken Robinson

Den enda verkliga upptäcktsresan består inte i att besöka nya landskap

utan i att se saker med nya ögon.

/Marcel Proust

Never underestimate the power

of a really pissed off woman.

Doubt kills more dreams,

than failure ever will.

Vart du än går,

gå med hela hjärtat.

Respect your parents,

they passed school without Google.

Life begins at the end of your comfortzone.

När man har haft bråttom länge,

måste man stanna upp och vänta in sin själ.

Vi ärver inte jorden av våra föräldrar,

vi lånar den av våra barn.

Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment,

until it becomes a memory.

Be a voice,

not an echo.

Det enda jag vet om ljusets hastighet

är att det kommer för tidigt på morgonen.

I have no special talents,

I am only passionately curious.

/Albert Einstein

Ingen kan få dig att känna dig underlägsen

utan din egen tillåtelse.

/Elenor Roosevelt

När du tittar på dina båda tassar

behöver du bara bestämma dig för vilken som är din högra,

sedan kan du vara säker på att den andra är din vänstra.

/Nalle Puh

A dream is a wish your heart makes.

Om ingenting någonsin skulle förändras,

skulle det inte finnas några fjärilar.

Life is like a camera…

Focus on what’s important,

Capture the good times,

Develop from the negativities,

And if things don’t work out,

Take another shot.

Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree,

it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.

/Albert Einsstein

Everything should be made as simple as possible,

but not simpler.

/Albert Einstein

You know you’re on the right track

when you become uninterested in looking back.

Knowledge is what to say.

Wisdom is knowing whether or not to say it.

Livet är härligt,

bara man är karaktärssvag nog att njuta av det.

/Sokrates

It’s the little things in life that makes life Big.

Det är inte vad du tittar på som spelar roll,

det är vad du ser.

/Henry David Thoreau

Beautiful things happen when you distance yourself from negativity.

Never give up on the things that make you smile.

Tur är det ställe där förberedelse och möjlighet möts.

/John Locke

Idéer kan vara livsförändrande.

Ibland är det enda du behöver en enda bra idé till.

/Jim Rohn

Once the mind has been stretched by a new idea,

it will never again return to its original size.

/Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr

Det enda som står mellan en människa

och vad hon vill ha ut av livet

är oftast bara viljan att pröva

och modet att våga tro att det är möjligt.

/Richard M. DeVos

There are hundreds of languages around the world,

but a smile speaks them all.

 

Det allra viktigaste kan man inte se med blotta ögat,

det ser man bara med hjärtat.

Alla snöstormar börjar med några enstaka snöflingor.

One day you wake up and there won’t be any more time

to do things you’re always wanted.

Do it now.

/Paulo Coelho

Kill them with success

and bury them with a smile.

Deal with the world the way it is,

not the way you wish it was.

/John Chambers

Don’t wait for the perfect moment,

take a moment and make it perfect.

You know you’re desperate for an answer

when you look at the second page of Google.

I’d like mornings better

if they started later.

 

If you’re not prepared to be wrong,

you’ll never come up with anything original.

/Ken Robinson

There are no mistakes,

only opportunities to learn.

People will forget what you said.

People will forget what you did.

But people will never forget how you made them feel.

/Maya Angelou

It always seems impossible until it is done.

/Nelson Mandela

Try not to become a person of success,

but rather try to become a person of value.

/Albert Einstein

The first to help you up are the ones who know how it feels to fall down.

If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way.

If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.

/Jim Rohn

When life puts you in tough situations

Don’t say “why me”?

Just say “try me”

Varenda blomma är en själ som öppnar sig för naturen.

/Gerald de Nerval

If you raised your voice,

You’ve already lost the argument.

I really need a day between Saturday and Sunday.

 

I love sleep because it’s a time machine to breakfast.

 

Good bye weekend, we had something special.

 

May your coffee be strong and your Monday be short.

Kindness is the language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

 ~Mark Twain
