Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.

John Maxwell

Author, speaker, and pastor John Maxwell believed in this message so thoroughly, he made it the title of his 2013 book about how to succeed. The quote is a play on the more common phrase, “Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose,” which Maxwell points out stops short of the crucial lesson. In order to keep moving forward and achieve our greatest dreams, we must also learn from those losses. If we apply that knowledge and wisdom the next time around, we’ll be that much closer to reaching our goals.

The greater the difficulty, the more the glory in surmounting it.

Epicurus

Epicurus was an ancient Greek thinker who taught a popular philosophy based on simple pleasures. He believed our purpose on Earth was to fill our days with happiness, avoiding fear and pain. But even Epicurus knew that life wasn’t without its difficulties. In this quote, he shares his belief that we can find joy in overcoming obstacles — and the more complex the task, the greater the satisfaction that awaits on the other side.

The time is always ripe to do right.

Martin Luther King Jr.

Civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. wrote this line in his 1963 “Letter From Birmingham Jail,” a message he addressed to clergymen who were critical of his nonviolent protests. This particular quote was King's response to calls for the racial justice movement to slow down and be patient. King described the liberation of Black Americans as woven into the overarching American goal of freedom. He urged his fellow clergymen and other bystanders to join this timely and urgent cause, because there is no wrong time to fight for justice.

The most effective way to do it, is to do it.

Amelia Earhart

Most of us have dreams and goals we’d like to achieve, but how to go about reaching them can be so confusing and daunting that we never get started. With these words, pioneering aviator Amelia Earhart encourages us to take action — even if it’s just beginning with a baby step. Earhart herself was seemingly born for adventure. Despite overwhelming odds, she set many aviation records, including becoming the first female to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.

I always liked Lucille Ball



Love yourself first and everything else falls into line.

Lucille Ball

It takes a lot of confidence to become a successful performer, and if anyone knew that, it was Lucille Ball. The “I Love Lucy” star is one of the most popular entertainers of all time, but Ball had a rough upbringing in Jamestown, NY, where her family struggled to put food on the table. As a teen, she moved to New York City for drama school, where she worked hard to find her confidence in a competitive scene. Eventually, her belief in herself paid off. After getting her start as a model, she moved to Hollywood in the early 1930s to pursue a career in television, finally landing her breakout role in CBS’ “I Love Lucy,” co-starring with her real-life husband, Desi Arnaz. In this quote, Ball credits confidence and self-love with her success, reflecting that "you really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world."

Maybe I could absorb this saying and start the decluttering in my office.


A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Lao Tzu

It’s easy to dream, but finding the motivation to get started is often the hardest part of the journey toward our goals. The secret? Take it one step at a time. It’s a sentiment that’s summed up perfectly in this well-known proverb from the ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu, who is considered the father of Taoism. It’s a simple metaphor, but a powerful motivator. It’s easy to get overwhelmed or discouraged when everything is ahead of us, but even our loftiest ambitions are achievable once we conjure the courage to take the first step.

We can always begin again.

Sharon Salzberg

Meditation guru Sharon Salzburg shared this important message as the finishing remark to her followers after a month-long meditation challenge in 2013. She recognized that meditation — like life — is a challenge, but we don’t need to be perfect on the first try. We can fail, and then learn from our mistakes. As long as we’re gentle with ourselves, we can always start over.

Our heads are round so thought can change direction.

Francis Picabia

This observation comes from French painter Francis Picabia, whose career embodied this idea so perfectly the quote was chosen as the title of a Museum of Modern Art exhibit about his life’s work. A singularly eclectic and unpredictable artist, Picabia was known for challenging conventional modernist art and frequently changing his own artistic style. His words and art remind us that creating something truly innovative requires being able to think flexibly, always staying open to new approaches, ideas, and possibilities.

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty, if your cup is full may it be again.

Robert Hunter

Some Grateful Dead lyrics are pure poetry, like this one from the song “Ripple” off the 1970 album “American Beauty.” In the song, the cupbearer is reaching out to an ethereal fountain that seems to represent the kindness of others. The line, written by the band’s enigmatic lyricist, Robert Hunter, is a beautiful expression of generosity. It suggests a simple, genuine wish for a friend’s happiness, and a willingness to help.
