15 Quotes by Bruce Lee that will still inspire you today

Quotes-by-Bruce-leeBruce Lee is best remembered for his roles in popular martial arts movies of the early 1970s, such as Enter the Dragon.

Born Lee Jun-fan in San Francisco in 1940, he was a Hong Kong-American actor, director, martial artist, martial arts instructor and philosopher brought up in Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Bruce Lee is considered by commentators, critics, media and indeed other martial artists to be the most influential martial artist of all time.

He also remains a pop culture icon of the 20th century, who bridged the gap between East and West.

Sadly Bruce Lee died of a cerebral oedema in Hong Kong in 1973 but subsequently, he was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century. For a martial artist, that’s fairly impressive don’t you think?

Despite his untimely death, he continues to influence people and there are several websites dedicated to Bruce Lee around the world.

In his relatively short life, he was credited with many inspirational quotes, so I thought today I’d share a few of these with you dear reader.

So here are 15 quotes by Bruce Lee that will still inspire you today.

20 classic Elaine Benes quotes that’ll raise a smile or two

20-Elaine-Benes-quotesAnother offering in my series with the theme of memorable sitcom characters, today I thought it would be entertaining to take a look back at some classic Elaine Benes quotes.

Who can forget this brilliant character from the American sitcom Seinfeld, played by the hugely talented Julia Louis-Dreyfus?

Elaine was a woman holding her own in a man’s world. She was smart, funny and she brought a sparkle to the show. However, like all memorable sitcom characters, she was essentially a little flawed too, as you’ll appreciate from the quotes today.

If you love Seinfeld, I’m sure you will be a fan of Elaine Benes.

However, if you’re not old enough to remember Seinfeld and Elaine Benes, in particular, then you’ll find plenty of amusing clips from this sitcom, and featuring the character Elaine Benes, on YouTube.

They’re all brilliant and definitely well worth a little piece of your time.

So check them out but not before you’ve enjoyed these 20 classic Elaine Benes quotes, which I’m confident will raise a smile or two, and will probably resonate with many female readers too, I’m sure.

Elaine Benes Quotes:

  3. Some people should just give up. I have. ~ Elaine Benes
  4. I once broke up with someone for not offering me pie. ~ Elaine Benes
  5. We just tease someone ’til they develop an eating disorder. ~ Elaine Benes

  9. I think this is the same one I gave him. He recycled this gift. He’s a re-gifter! ~ Elaine Benes
  10. You know that just admitting a man is handsome doesn’t necessarily make you a homosexual. ~ Elaine Benes
  11. I can’t do this anymore, it’s too long! Just tell your stupid story about the stupid desert and just die already! Die! ~ Elaine Benes

  14. Here’s to those who wish us well, and those who don’t can go to Hell. ~ Elaine Benes
  15. I mean the problem is that the good ones know they’re good. And they know they’re in such demand they’re just not interested in confining themselves to one person. ~ Elaine Benes
  16. That’s the bra I gave her, she’s wearing it as a top! The woman is walking around in broad daylight with nothing but a bra on. She’s a menace to society. ~ Elaine Benes
  17. Kramer, you don’t understand. He made the last contact between us. I had the upper hand in the post-breakup relationship. If he thinks that I said hi, then I lose the upper hand. ~ Elaine Benes
  18. You know your whole life you go through painstaking efforts to hide your nipple and then BOOM, suddenly hundreds of people get their own personal shot of it. ~ Elaine Benes
  19. Yeah, since she met him she’s been vomited on, her family cabin’s been burned down, she learned her father’s a homosexual, and she got fired from a high-paying network job. Yeah, they had a real good thing going. ~ Elaine Benes
  20. This whole sex thing is totally overrated. Now, here’s the one thing you’ve gotta be ready for is how the man changes into a completely different person five seconds after it’s over. I mean, something happens to their personality; it’s really quite astounding. It’s like they committed a crime and they want to flee the scene before the police get there. ~ Elaine Benes

15 amusing quotes by Spike Milligan to make you smile

I love to read amusing quotes by Spike Milligan. He was undoubtedly a man with a funny bone.

In case you’re not familiar with his name, Spike Milligan was a funny, irreverent and much-loved comedian and staple of British television and radio for many years in the post-war era and right up until his death in 2002.

Born Terence Alan Milligan in India, he was the son of a British Army Captain of Irish descent and an English mother.

In addition to being a wonderful comic performer, probably best known for his work with the Goon Show, he was also a successful writer, poet, playwright and actor.

Though he spent much of his early life in India, the majority of his adult life was spent in the United Kingdom.

However, when the Commonwealth Immigrants Act removed Indian-born Milligan’s automatic right to British citizenship in 1962, despite his own service in the British Army as well as his father’s, he became an Irish citizen, exercising a right conferred through his Irish-born father.

I think he was a genuinely funny man and to prove it, here are 15 of his razor-sharp quips. Enjoy them all.

Quotes by Spike Milligan:

  1. All men are cremated equal. ~Spike Milligan
  2. All I ask is the chance to prove that money can’t make me happy. ~Spike Milligan
  3. I thought I’d begin by reading a poem by Shakespeare, but then I thought, why should I? He never reads any of mine. ~Spike Milligan
  4. Are you going to come quietly, or do I have to use earplugs? ~Spike Milligan
  5. Money couldn’t buy friends, but you get a better class of enemy. ~Spike Milligan
  6. I’m a hero with coward’s legs. ~Spike Milligan
  7. How long was I in the army? Five-foot eleven. ~Spike Milligan
  8. I turned and rubbed my hands with glee. I always keep a tin of glee handy. ~Spike Milligan
  9. I’m not afraid of dying, I just don’t want to be there when it happens. ~Spike Milligan
  10. Contraceptives should be used on every conceivable occasion. ~Spike Milligan
  11. Life is a long agonized illness only curable by death. ~Spike Milligan
  12. I can speak Esperanto like a native. ~Spike Milligan
  13. A bird in The Strand is worth two in Shepherd’s Bush. ~Spike Milligan
  14. A family man from Siberia; As a father was very inferior; But one operation; Revised the situation; And now he’s Mother Superior. ~Spike Milligan
  15. And God said, ‘Let there be light’ and there was light, but the Electricity Board said He would have to wait until Thursday to be connected. ~Spike Milligan

7 inspirational quotes about success to motivate you

7-inspirational-quotes-about-successIf you’re looking for inspirational quotes about success then first think about what success really means to you. Your definition of success will not necessarily be the same as someone else’s.

Success to you might be nothing more than being happy and content.

That’s admirable of course, and there’s nothing wrong with having that as your goal. However, someone else might be looking for a lot more from life.

For them, success might be an Olympic gold medal or winning the Super Bowl.

So, before you pursue success, you would do well to reflect on what it means to you and why you want it. Knowing your ‘why?‘ is half the battle, when it comes to achieving success.

Success is something that is desired by many people but which only a few truly achieve.

To be successful, you have to want it so bad that it hurts. That’s why it’s important to know your why. If you know your ‘why?’ you will be able to bear any ‘how?’.

You must be focused on your goals; you must be disciplined; you must be determined; you must be prepared to make sacrifices; you must be prepared to work very, very hard; and you must possess self-belief too.

Remember; nothing worth having ever comes easy.

If you want success then you must be prepared to pay the price in blood, sweat and tears. And that price must always be paid first.

You’ll get nothing before you’ve paid the price. You’ll find that even people who are an ‘overnight success’ have spent years honing their skills before favourable circumstances provided them with an opportunity to shine like a star.

Nothing happens overnight. You’ve got to work at it and keep working at it.

And remember this too; you’ll experience failure from time to time and you’ll question whether you’re good enough over and over again.

The temptation to quit will be overwhelming at times. You’ll be constantly tempted to settle for an easier life. Don’t!

Success can be achieved if you stick at it and just keep going. Focus on the prize.

In the words of the late, great Muhammad Ali, I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’

Success can be yours if you work hard and hang on in there until you achieve whatever it is that you want to achieve. Just go for it!

And remember also; it’s better to try and fail than never having tried at all. At least you won’t spend the rest of your life wondering what might have been.

Here are seven interesting and inspirational quotes about success.

Inspirational quotes about success:

  1. Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers, you cannot be successful or happy. ~Norman Vincent Peale
  2. Commitment is a big part of what I am and what I believe. How committed are you to winning? How committed are you to being a good friend? To being trustworthy? To being successful? How committed are you to being a good father, a good teammate, a good role model? There’s that moment every morning when you look in the mirror: Are you committed, or are you not? ~LeBron James
  3. Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps, they need to take to get them closer to the fulfilment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them. ~Jack Canfield
  4. The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will. ~Vince Lombardi
  5. At the end of the day, you are solely responsible for your success and your failure. And the sooner you realize that you accept that, and integrate that into your work ethic, you will start being successful. As long as you blame others for the reason you aren’t where you want to be, you will always be a failure. ~Erin Cummings
  6. Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together. ~Paul Ryan
  7. Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success. ~Thomas J. Watson

7 inspirational quotes about money that’ll make you think

Quotes about moneyPeople may tell you that money’s not important but, after oxygen, few things are more important to sustaining life in the modern age. So it’s essential that we take good care of our money and use it wisely.

That’s not to say we should be mean or stingy. Quite the contrary; being generous when it’s appropriate is very important.

However, we should not waste money or fritter it away on things we don’t need and/or will never use.

Enjoy your money when you have it but always put a little away for a rainy day because one day it will rain, of that you can be absolutely sure, dear reader.

Build capital over time and that capital can then generate an income stream for you.

Money can make your life easier of course but on its own, it will not make you happy. Never make the mistake of assuming that it will.

Happiness comes from within and if you’re not happy without money then having some money is unlikely to improve that situation.

Quotes about moneyNever chase money for its own sake. The personal cost of being overly acquisitive is likely to be very high indeed.

Make sure you have some balance in your life; then do what you love; do it well and the money will follow.

And never forget this; money is important but the people in your life are far more important. You can have all the money in the world but without people in your life, you have nothing.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about money to help you reflect on what it really means.

Inspirational quotes about money:

  1. Anybody who thinks money will make you happy hasn’t got money. ~David Geffen
  2. When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life; now that I am old I know that it is. ~Oscar Wilde
  3. A wise man should have money in his head but not in his heart. ~Jonathan Swift
  4. Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish but it will not replace you as the driver. ~Ayn Rand
  5. Bottom line is, I didn’t return to Apple to make a fortune. I’ve been very lucky in my life and already have one. When I was 25, my net worth was $100 million or so. I decided then that I wasn’t going to let it ruin my life. There’s no way you could ever spend it all, and I don’t view wealth as something that validates my intelligence. ~Steve Jobs
  6. There are people who have money and people who are rich. ~Coco Chanel
  7. Money can buy you a fine dog, but only love can make him wag his tail. ~Kinky Friedman

3 hilariously funny jokes that will definitely tickle you silly

hilariously-funny-jokesToday I offer you three hilariously funny jokes that will definitely tickle you, dear reader. Well, they certainly tickled me anyway. So take a moment or two to enjoy them all.

Hilariously funny jokes:

1. Car trouble:

Jane was driving along Interstate 5 on her way to San Diego when her old car suddenly died on her. Naturally, she called out a local mechanic to help her.

The mechanic arrived and said, “Howdy mam, what seems to be the problem?

Well”, said Jane, “I was just driving along when suddenly I lost all power and the car came to a complete standstill.”

Well let me just take a look for you mam”, said the mechanic.

At which he lifts the hood and gives the engine a cursory glance before whacking something very hard with a hammer.

Try it now mam”, said the mechanic.

To Jane’s amazement, when she turned the key, the car burst into life again.

That’s incredible!” said Jane. “You’ve been here for less than 30 seconds and you’ve already got it going again. I’m very grateful. Thank you.

All part of the service mam!” the mechanic responded, before adding, “That’ll be $250.”

Jane couldn’t quite believe what she was hearing. “How much?” she said. “How can it be $250 when all you did was hit something with a hammer?

Well mam”, said the mechanic, “I can produce an itemised bill if you like.

Yes please”, said Jane, “you do that! It’ll make interesting reading.”

So the mechanic started tapping something into an iPad and then he printed it out on a printer in his truck. He then handed Jane the bill. It read:

 

2. The new bus driver:

The new bus driver pulled his bus up at the bus stop and on stepped a giant of a man who said to the driver, “Big John don’t pay!” before walking off and taking his seat.

Well Big John was aptly named, he really was a monster of a man and the driver was small and skinny, so he figured that a confrontation with Big John may not end well. Not for him anyway. So he let it go.

The next day the same thing happened. The bus stopped, Big John got on, and once again he told the driver, “Big John don’t pay!” before going straight to his seat.

Again the new driver was reluctant to challenge him because of his size.

Well, this became a daily occurrence and increasingly the new bus driver began to resent being afraid of Big John.

So he decided to sign up for a bodybuilding class at his local gym. He figured that if he was more muscular he’d be equipped to challenge Big John and force him to pay the fare. This became an obsession with him and he worked hard on it.

Before long the bus driver had rippling muscles where once there had only been skin and bone. And as his physical appearance became more impressive, the driver felt confident and ready to confront Big John the next time he got on his bus.

Sure enough, at the usual stop, onto the bus stepped Big John, with his usual declaration, “Big John don’t pay!”

Now just hold it there fella!” said the driver, ready and waiting for a confrontation. “And just why don’t Big John pay?

Well, the situation was tense momentarily as Big John reached into his pocket and the driver began to wonder whether he’d done the right thing after all.

Then Big John smiled as he withdrew his hand from his pocket and said, “Because I’ve got this bus pass!

3. Native American Chief:

Bill was studying for a Masters Degree in American Studies at the University of London. He loved American culture, so naturally, he was a regular traveller to the USA. In particular, he liked getting to know real America beyond the obvious tourist destinations.

On one trip he was staying in a hotel in Cheyenne, Wyoming when he saw an old Native American chief in full native dress sitting in the lobby.

Wow, who’s that?” Bill asked the desk clerk.

Oh, that’s Chief Elephant’s Memory,” the clerk responded.

Why’s he called Chief Elephant’s Memory?” asked Bill.

Because he’s 93 and he still has the most amazing memory. He never forgets anything,” said the clerk. “You might not believe this but he can actually remember every single detail of his life with immediate recall.”

Really?” Bill said, intrigued by what he was being told.

So Bill walked up to the Chief and said, “Hi there, I hope you don’t mind but I’ve heard you have the most amazing memory. They say you can remember every detail of your life. Can you tell me what you had for breakfast on your eighteenth birthday?

Eggs”, replied the Chief quietly.

Bill was amazed at this response but as he walked away the desk clerk called him over and said, “Hey buddy when you speak to one of our Native Americans you don’t say ‘Hi there’, it’s common courtesy to address them by saying, ‘How!’.

Bill thanked the clerk for putting him right and promised he’d remember that next time.

One year later Bill’s back in Cheyenne again. He’s in the same hotel when he spots the same old Native American chief sitting in the lobby.

Remembering the desk clerk’s advice from his previous visit he walks up to the Chief and says, “How!

Sunny-side up”, the Chief responded.

5 quotes about communication that will make you think

5-Quotes-about-COMMUNICATIONIn the field of human relations, effective communication is very important. Yet communication or lack of it is so often the cause of so many of our problems. After all, it’s not what we say, it’s what we mean. In this post, there are 5 quotes about communication to help you consider this point.

We may think we’ve said something clearly but did the other person understand the meaning of our words in the way they were intended? Did we use the right words to convey our underlying message?

All too often we fail to get our message across clearly. Then we can find ourselves arguing with someone due to a miscommunication when in fact both parties have no underlying disagreement at all.

If you’re the communicator then it is your responsibility to ensure that the receiver of your communication understands its meaning clearly. It is not the receiver’s job to work out what you really meant. And of course, it’s not only what you say, it’s the way that you say it.

I can use exactly the same words with a different tone and convey a totally different meaning. For instance, if you walk into a room and I say your name warmly and with a smile then it suggests I’m pleased to see you and you will respond accordingly.

Alternatively, if I scream your name as you enter that same room then you will conclude that I am not happy with you at all and you will become very defensive.

So think carefully before you speak. If you’re in any role where you are a leader of people then good communication skills are vital if you are to execute your duties successfully.

So learn the art of good communication and remember that your tone is as important as your words.

Treat people with respect and they will respond well. Put them at ease when speaking with them and make sure they clearly understand your message as it was intended. Good communication is essential for effective leadership.

Here are those five quotes about communication:-

Quotes about communication:

  1. To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others. ~Tony Robbins
  2. Take advantage of every opportunity to practice your communication skills so that when important occasions arise, you will have the gift, the style, the sharpness, the clarity, and the emotions to affect other people. ~Jim Rohn
  3. Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill. ~Buddha
  4. Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair.
