Inspirational Sayings

The following are a sample of motivational and inspirational sayings that can really make a difference when life seems to be going in the wrong direction. They are “Gold Nuggets” of inspiration that can sometimes get you through some tough moments. A personal favorite is “When the going gets tough; the tough get going.” This saying was so popular back in the 80’s that it became lyrics to a song by BillyOcean. This saying helped to inspire me to become an officer in the US Air Force and later on to earn a doctorate degree in Higher Education. I personalized this saying by adding a few more lines, “When the going get tough, the tough get going. I am tough, so I need to get going.”

Albert Einstein

 You only lose energy when life becomes dull in your mind. Your mind gets bored and therefore tired of doing nothing. Get interested in something! Get absolutely enthralled in something! Get out of yourself! Be somebody! Do something. The more you lose yourself in something bigger than yourself, the more energy you will have.


Norman Vincent Peale

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited; imagination enriches the world."


Albert Einstein.



“Exploring the world and listening to everyday people has brought significant positive changes in my life. Therefore, you don’t have to be ‘a person of influence’ to be influential.”
