Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing. ~Thomas Jefferson
Thomas Jefferson was one of the chief architects of our freedom here in the United States. He was also one of the greatest sources of awesome quotes. He never ceases to amaze me on how many great, inspiring, or just plain wise things he came up with and shared with the rest of us.
I think we all should read inspiring quotes daily by some of the most influential people in history. There is a reason people have recorded their words for all posterity. We should use these quotes to inspire, motivate, or just to keep us on the “straight and narrow,” or remind us that mistakes are human.
I’m not necessarily a feel-good kind of person, but wise is wise, and smart people are the best people from which to learn. Well, sometimes, dumb people are, too – but the smart people should be your first model.
