  1. Mr. Bell says:

    Some of my favourite quotes come from Albert Einstein:

    “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
    “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”
    “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

    I like these quotes because they inspire me to imagine and try new things without fearing the outcome. Too often, people get in their bubble of comfort and miss out on amazing experiences because they are afraid or unimaginative. What do you think?

    • Jacob Kealey says:

      These are quotes that i have leaned except for 1.
      1.”Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall”

      2.” Friends are people you’d take a limo ride with but a true friend is the one that takes a cab home with you when the limo breaks down”.

      To me, boxing is like a ballet, except there’s no music, no choreography, and
      the dancers hit each other.

      5.Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee πŸ™‚

      6.”Forgive all who have offended you, not for them, but for yourself”.

      I like these quotes because some are good humour that relate to what I do and also I think their things that some people should learn.

  3. Allie Sampson says:

    I like Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars. ~Les Brown Because it inspires me to try even though you don’t win you can try again. πŸ™‚

    • Rylee Johnson says:

  4. I like the one buy Les Brown. Shoot for the moon even if you miss you will land among the stars!!!I like it besusa it tells you to try!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

  5. Rylee Johnson says:

    I think this is funny and true:

    Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
    Vince Lombardi


    If winning isn’t everything, why do they keep score?
    Vince Lombardi

    I like this one because it is true, you do have to work hard to become a leader. You have to make good decisions.

    Leaders aren’t born they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
    Vince Lombardi

    I think he is great. I think I have heard of Vince Lombardi. It looks like he can make funny quotes but he could also make very calm but believable. I think I will read more of his quotes more often πŸ™‚

    • Mr. Bell says:

      Great response! Vince Lombardi was a football coach. I wonder if his quotes were spoken in a calm manner to his football players?

      • Calvin ;) says:

        • Mr. Bell says:

          There are thousands of quotes on the links provided – do some searching.

          Why do you like the Lombardi quote?

      • Rylee says:

        Oh I didn’t know that. I think he speaks louder too them and maybe says the same thing in different words. Well I mean hopefully. I think it would make the football players work harder.

  6. Allie Sampson says:

    M y favourite quote from those on top is Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars. ~Les Brown , Dreams are free, so free your dreams. ~Astrid Alauda and The shell must break before the bird can fly. ~Alfred Tennyson because it inspires me to keep trying, live your dreams and everything is possible if you try.

  10. Ashley Evin says:

    I think this is a great quote because it tells you to never be afraid to do what you want. It also tells you to follow your dreams sand reach for the stars.

    “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

    I like this one because it tells you to always be happy for what you have.

    “Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities.”

    I love this quote because it tells people that it’s not important to win just have fun.

    “Victory belongs to the most persevering.”

    • Mr. Bell says:

      Great post! Who said the quotes you shared? The qualities in the first quote (strength, patience and passion) are ones that many successful people have in common.

  13. Tyler says:

    My favourite quote is off the movie Talladega Nights when he says if you ain’t first your last because it gets me pumped up for hockey and I hate losing. I also like this one I just found from Jerry Seinfeld because its funny and cool. He said that a two year old is kind of like having a blender with no top on it!!!:!
