Your quotations motivate me. They motivate me to make sure I try to spell, punctuate and use proper grammar when I write something. Your quotes are a good example of how not to do it.

This quote has had a big difference in my life.

"Get off your ass you bum and get a hair cut and a job!!!!!!!!!" :lol:

This one also moved me.

"Get out of my house."

Dont forget.

"Get off me"
"If you fear change, you fear success"

Is that a quote? anyway your comments noted.
which reminds me of another quote.

"Successful people have a low attention span" (Donald Trump)
Once they get the point they filter away all words that are non-beneficial to them.

If your first two "in i'll start" are quotes, who did you attribute them to? Just curious as you did claim they were quotes but without the attribution that generally accompanies them (as you did in your subsequent posts).

I forgot all about this as my attention span is relatively short but just happened across it again so I though I'd ask. :wink:

I'm not sure if this is a motivational quote but I heard it said to me once and well, it made me feel nice.

Your imperfections are what make you perfect. -MC

Nice one WIMH

Not so much of a quote but a really good video and message behind it.
Sick Puppies - All The Same (Free Hugs) on YouTube

I hope to start this in Singapore soon, hope I don't get arrested. I probably will, my cousin mentioned that some people have. Lets see.
