25 Quotes by Richard Branson to inspire you to greater things

Quotes-by-Richard-BransonSir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson, or simply Richard Branson as he’s better known, is a British billionaire, entrepreneur, and business magnate. By any measure, he’s a successful, self-made, man and therefore we can learn from him. So, some quotes by Richard Branson are worth exploring.

He expressed a desire to become an entrepreneur from an early age. In the 1970s Richard Branson founded the Virgin Group, which today controls more than 400 companies in various fields.

Over the years his interests have extended across retail, music and transport – including land, air, sea and space travel – and his taste for adventure plus his humanitarian work, have resulted in him becoming a prominent global figure.

So here are 25 quotes by Richard Branson to inspire you to greater things.

Quotes by Richard Branson (1-10):

  1. A good leader doesn’t get stuck behind a desk.
  2. Material things are delightful but they’re not important.
  3. Starting your own business isn’t just a job it’s a way of life. 
  4. In business, if you realise you’ve made a bad decision, you change it.
  5. Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.
  6. Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.
  7. You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over.
  8. One thing is certain in business. You and everyone around you will make mistakes.
  9. If you’re embarking around the world in a hot-air balloon, don’t forget the toilet paper.
  10. My philosophy is that if I have any money I invest it in new ventures and not have it sitting around.

Quotes by Richard Branson (11-20):

  1. I always find the time to exercise – kitesurfing, tennis or cycling – and to spend time with my loved ones.
  2. Every successful businessman will have experienced setbacks and failures. They’re lying if they say they haven’t.  
  3. It’s a common misconception that money is every entrepreneur’s metric for success. It’s not, and nor should it be.
  4. My interest in life comes from setting myself huge, apparently unachievable challenges and trying to rise above them.
  5. Being a good listener is absolutely critical to being a good leader; you have to listen to the people who are on the front line.
  6. Entrepreneurs are natural problem-solvers, which means that we always have ideas for new businesses popping into our heads. 
  7. My attitude has always been, if you fall flat on your face, at least you’re moving forward. All you have to do is get back up and try again.
  8. It’s rare for a start-up to make money immediately, so you need to make sure that you have enough saved or that you have another income stream that can support you. 
  9. Fun is one of the most important and underrated ingredients in any successful venture. If you’re not having fun, then it’s probably time to call it quits and try something else.
  10. Most people would assume my business success, and the wealth that comes with it, have brought me happiness. But I know I am successful, wealthy, and connected because I am happy.

Quotes by Richard Branson (21-25):

  1. Treat failure as a lesson on how not to approach achieving a goal and then use that learning to improve your chances of success when you try again. Failure is only the end if you decide to stop.
  2. Too many people measure how successful they are by how much money they make or the people that they associate with. In my opinion, true success should be measured by how happy you are.
  3. There’s an inherent danger in letting people think that they have perfected something. When they believe they’ve ‘nailed it,’ most people tend to sit back and rest on their laurels while countless others will be labouring furiously to better their work!
  4. From a young age, I learned to focus on the things I was good at and delegate to others what I was not good at. That’s how Virgin is run. Fantastic people throughout the Virgin Group run our businesses, allowing me to think creatively and strategically.
  5. If you want to be more productive, then start at the start: get there on time. Whether it is a meeting, a flight, an appointment or a date, it’s important to ensure you are there when you say you will be there. This may feel like an old-fashioned tip to give, but it has served me well for five decades in business.

7 inspirational quotes about marriage

Inspirational Quotes About MarriageMarriage can be a thorny subject for some and a source of great pleasure for others. If a successful marriage is your aim then you’ll need to master the art of compromise, as well as choose a life partner for whom you have the greatest respect and whose company you enjoy.

Friendship is at the heart of any successful marriage and friendship is a relationship of equals.

That means the power dynamic in your relationship must be balanced. Both parties must feel that their needs are being met.

You’re a team and as with all teams, each of you has a role to play. One person cannot be expected to bear the burden of doing everything whilst the other person does nothing. That’s not fair, nor is it sustainable.

A successful marriage can be your greatest investment. Choose your partner wisely and a successful relationship can be yours. Whereas, failing to choose carefully could prove to be painful for all concerned.

So today I offer you seven inspirational quotes about marriage to help you reflect on what is one of life’s great institutions.

Remember this; choose well and nurture your relationship and it can last a lifetime.

Find the right partner and you’ll appreciate their presence in your life with each passing year and much more so as you get older.

Inspirational quotes about marriage:

  1. By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher. ~Socrates
  2. Happy is the man who finds a true friend and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife. ~Franz Schubert
  3. It is not a lack of love but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages. ~Friedrich Nietzsche
  4. My most brilliant achievement was my ability to be able to persuade my wife to marry me. ~Winston Churchill
  5. Don’t marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can’t live without. ~James Dobson
  6. The secret of a happy marriage is finding the right person. You know they’re right if you love to be with them all the time. ~Julia Child
  7. Every good relationship, especially marriage, is based on respect. If it’s not based on respect, nothing that appears to be goodwill lasts very long. ~Amy Grant

21 thought-provoking quotes about losing a loved one

quotes about losing a loved oneWhen you lose a loved one, it’s one of the toughest things to deal with in life. Certainly, that’s been my experience.

Suddenly you have someone so dear wrenched from your life and you know you will never see or speak to them again. It’s very hard.

What you’d give to sit with them one more time and tell them how much they meant to you.

If only you could have a laugh with them once again and share a drink or a meal.

How you’d love to talk with them about happy times and the absurd things in life that drive you nuts. To share your troubles with that special person who was always there with a supportive ear.

If you’ve yet to lose a loved one you cannot appreciate how it feels.

However, readers who’ve experienced such loss will know exactly what I mean.

And one day, every reader will know how it feels. Loss touches us all at some point in our lives.

Here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about losing a loved one to help you reflect on life’s greatest challenge.

For as long as you remember them they can never be truly gone.

23 amusing quotes by Jerry Seinfeld to brighten your day

amusing quotes by Jerry Seinfeld

Photo by Alan Light

Today I’ve put together some amusing quotes by Jerry Seinfeld.

Most readers will know that Jerry Seinfeld is an American comedian and probably best known as the star of the successful US sitcom Seinfeld, in which he played a semi-fictionalized version of himself.

Much more than this, Jerry Seinfeld is a hugely successful actor, writer, producer, and director.

As a stand-up comedian, he specializes in observational comedy, which I love, and I would rate him as one of the best comedians of all time.

So take a moment or two to enjoy all of these amusing quotes by Jerry Seinfeld, and if you like them then please pass them on.

Amusing quotes by Jerry Seinfeld:

  1. There is no such thing as fun for the whole family.
  2. People who read the tabloids deserve to be lied to.
  3. Men don’t care what’s on TV. They only care what else is on TV.
  4. The IRS! They’re like the Mafia. They can take anything they want!
  5. My theory is that 98 per cent of all human endeavour is killing time.
  6. I don’t want to hear the specials. If they’re so special, put ’em on the menu.
  7. To me, if life boils down to one thing, it’s movement. To live is to keep moving.
  8. Make no mistake about why these babies are here. They’re here to replace us.
  9. That’s the true spirit of Christmas; people being helped by people other than me.
  10. My parents didn’t want to move to Florida, but they turned sixty and that’s the law.
  11. You have to motivate yourself with challenges. That’s how you know you’re still alive.
  12. A bookstore is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking.
  13. You know you’re getting old when you get that one candle on the cake. It’s like, ‘See if you can blow this out.’ 
  14. It’s amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world every day always just exactly fits the newspaper.
  15. Where lipstick is concerned, the important thing is not colour, but to accept God’s final word on where your lips end.
  16. Being a good husband is like being a good stand-up comic – you need ten years before you can even call yourself a beginner.
  17. The worst way of flying, I think, is standby. It never works. That’s why they call it standby. You end up standing there going, ‘Bye!’
  18. Marriage is like a game of chess except the board is flowing water, the pieces are made of smoke and no move you make will have any effect on the outcome.
  19. Forty to 60 I would say is your prime. That’s when you know the most, you’ve seen the most, you understand the most, and you still have some physical energy.
  20. We want to do a lot of stuff; we’re not in great shape. We didn’t get a good night’s sleep. We’re a little depressed. Coffee solves all these problems in one delightful little cup.
  21. I am so busy doing nothing that the idea of doing anything, which as you know always leads to something, cuts into the nothing and then forces me to have to drop everything.
  22. There’s very little advice in men’s magazines because men don’t think there’s a lot they don’t know. Women do. Women want to learn. Men think, ‘I know what I’m doing, just show me somebody naked.’ 
  23. Now they show you how detergents take out bloodstains, a pretty violent image there. I think if you’ve got a T-shirt with a bloodstain all over it, maybe laundry isn’t your biggest problem. Maybe you should get rid of the body before you do the wash.

30 sharp and funny quotes by George Carlin

Funny-Quotes-by-George-CarlinToday I thought it would be a good idea to look back at some funny quotes by George Carlin.

The late George Carlin was an American stand-up comedian, actor, philosopher, author, and social critic. He’s probably best known for his sardonic, irreverent wit and his reflections on politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and various other taboo subjects.

Sadly George Carlin died on June 28, 2008, in Santa Monica, CA. He was 71 years old.

I loved his irreverent wit and I thought he was a very funny man.

If you’re unfamiliar with his work, then it’s worth checking out some of the many videos of his performances that you’ll find on YouTube.

So, here are 30 funny quotes by George Carlin that I’m confident will get you thinking about life, the universe and everything.

Funny quotes by George Carlin (1-15):

  1. I think I am, therefore, I am … I think.
  2. It’s never just a game when you’re winning.
  3. What if there were no hypothetical questions?
  4. Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.

  12. ‘Bipartisan’ usually means that a larger-than-usual deception is being carried out.
  13. Some people have no idea what they’re doing, and a lot of them are really good at it.
  14. Just because you got the monkey off your back doesn’t mean the circus has left town.
  15. I have as much authority as the Pope. I just don’t have as many people who believe it.

Funny quotes by George Carlin (16-25):

  1. Quotes-by-George-CarlinThink of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

15 classic quotes by William Shakespeare to inspire you

Quotes by William ShakespeareThere can be few people who are unfamiliar with the name William Shakespeare. He was, of course, a playwright and one of the giants of English literature.

The Bard of Avon, as he was known, is widely regarded as the world’s pre-eminent dramatist and the greatest writer in the English language.

Shakespeare’s works, including his collaborations, consist of approximately 39 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, some of uncertain authorship.

William Shakespeare’s plays have been translated into every major living language, and they are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

Quotes by William Shakespeare are well known and most readers will be familiar with them. However, I make no apology for making Shakespeare’s quotes the subject of today’s post.

If you hear a great song that inspires you, you don’t say, “Right, heard it once. That’s enough!

No, you listen to it over and over again. In that way, you’re inspired constantly.

And so it is with thought-provoking quotes like those of Shakespeare.

They are worth reading over and over again to help you reflect on life’s meaning and to be inspired.
