Start Your Week Right with Inspirational Quotes from Earl Nightingale


Today would have been Earl Nightingale’s birthday.  In his honor, here are a few of his quotes that I think will help you get a good start on the week.



Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.  ― Earl Nightingale


…peace of mind does not mean numbness of mind. ― Earl Nightingale


Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.  ― Earl Nightingale


A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before we changed.  ― Earl Nightingale


The opposite of courage in our society is not cowardice… it is conformity.  ― Earl Nightingale


People credited with all kinds of ability, talent, brains and know how, including the ability to see into the future, frequently have nothing more than the courage to keep everlastingly at what they set out to do. They have that one great quality that is worth more than all the rest put together. They simply will not give up! When a man makes up his mind to do something then it’s only a matter of time. Staying with time take bulldog persistence. This seems to be the entrance examination to success – lasting success — of any kind!  ― Earl Nightingale
