Stay hungry, stay foolish.
Don't spur a willing horse.
It is not the horse that draws the cart, but the oats.
Men are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else; and primarily, morality consists in the motives, that is in the affections.
Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway.
God made man to go by motives, and he will not go without them, any more than a boat without steam or a balloon without gas.

Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner.
The ultimate inspiration is the deadline.
Nobody motivates today's workers. If it doesn't come from within, it doesn't come. Fun helps remove the barriers that allow people to motivate themselves.
