Motivational Monday

It’s Monday (again!) Where did the weekend go?



To help you on your journey this week here are a few literary quotes from some wonderful writers  that I hope will enlighten, inspire and get you movin’ in the right direction. (By the way…why do we always go right? Sorry, that’s not very funny. Cheesy really.)

readily than it hates.” – Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter








fireworks-388492_1280“As long as the heart beats, as long as body and soul keep together, I cannot admit that any creature endowed with a will has need to despair of life.”- Jules Verne, Journey to the Centre of the Earth



berner-169744_1280“Be men, or be more than men. Be steady to your purposes and firm as a rock. This ice is not made of such stuff as your hearts may be; it is mutable and cannot withstand you if you say that it shall not.”- Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

wonder-woman-552109_1280“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”- Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman



candles-626038_1280“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”- Jack Kerouac, On the Road


Until Next time…Burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars!
