Exclamation Business & Success Quotes

I enjoy writing quotes for fun and relaxation. Here are some of my most recent quotes. I'm not suggesting they're instant classics, or anything like that. But I like them, and some of them are thought-provoking.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"You can beat a dead horse all you want...it's still going to be dead."

"Bad luck favors the unprepared."

"If working smart is the key to success, why aren't all geniuses successful?" "

"Don't ever be afraid to reach for success. Your arms may be longer than you think."

"Before you play follow the leader, make sure the leader is worthy of being followed."

"When you break a promise, you're not only breaking your word, you're shattering your reputation."

"Be careful when buying hype. It's usually worthless."

"Failure can be expensive, but its lessons are often priceless."

"Time is on your side, only if you're the one controlling the clock."

"To be the best you can be, you first have to figure out who you are."

"If you think life sucks, try living it as a straw."

"A penny saved goes right to the government."

"A bird in hand is worth a hand full of crap."

"When all is said and done...say and do something else."

"A great movie is like great sex...you remember it forever."

"Every dog has its day, but every cat has three afternoons."

"If you haven't seen anything yet...open your eyes."

"Whoever said there's no tomorrow probably died the day before."

"At the end of the day, it will be evening."

"If you build it, and they don't come, put in a jacuzzi."

"Women rule the world. Men are just here for entertainment."

"If the grass looks greener on the other side, it's probably because they use more fertilizer...and you know what that's made of."

"A wolf in sheep's clothing is probably going to a Halloween party."

"The squeaky wheel may eventually get the oil, but in the meantime, the noise will drive you nuts."

Whoever said, "It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game..." probably never won anything.

"Keep your friends close, and your enemies under lock and key."

"Before judging others, take full measure of yourself first."

"Ask not for whom the bell tolls...just find out who keeps ringing the dam_ thing!"

I like the qoute "Before judging others, take full measure of yourself first."
True, judging others is not advantageous rather judging yourself is essential. This way you see what to improve for yourself first.

I like this one "Work isn't a wolf, so it won't run to the forest", the favorite saying for those who don't want to work in Russia
