Achievement quotes by Injap Sia
#1. Whatever achievements and successes I've had didn't happen overnight. It is all a product of guidance, hard work, careful planning, and intense, passionate execution over many years. (p. 69) #Quote by Injap Sia
Achievement quotes by Mooji
#2. There is a Silence that is totally impersonal.
It is not the fruit of anybody's work.
Peace is there, but there is no peacekeeper.
This Peace is only known when the noise of the person is not present.
In the absence of the 'person' there are no distractions.
Only the ever-pure Awareness prevails.
The Ultimate is nobody's achievement at all. #Quote by Mooji
Achievement quotes by Henry Petroski
#3. Although engineers want always to make everything better, they cannot make anything perfect. This basic characteristic flaw of the products of the profession's practitioners is what drives change and makes achievement a process rather than simply a goal. #Quote by Henry Petroski
Achievement quotes by Ian McKellen
#4. It may be my rather puritanical upbringing at odds with my inborn laziness that makes me feel guilty at the end of the day, unless I am able to point at some achievement. But this need be no more impressive than cooking a meal or going for a long walk. #Quote by Ian McKellen
Achievement quotes by Alfred Hitchcock
#5. When accepting the American Film Institute Life Achievement award: I beg permission to mention by name only four people who have given me the most affection, appreciation, and encouragement, and constant collaboration. The first of the four is a film editor, the second is a scriptwriter, the third is the mother of my daughter Pat (Patricia Hitchcock), and the fourth is as fine a cook as ever performed miracles in a domestic kitchen. And their names are Alma Reville. #Quote by Alfred Hitchcock
Achievement quotes by Bob Proctor
#7. Few people today realize just how much faith in oneself (that part of oneself which is spiritual, perfect) has to do with achievement, because the great majority of people never seem to conceive of faith as being a genuine creative force. Yet the truth is that not only is Faith a bona fide power, but it is the greatest one we will ever encounter. #Quote by Bob Proctor
Achievement quotes by Napoleon Hill
#8. The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Achievement quotes by Arthur Balfour
#9. His Majesty's Government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country. #Quote by Arthur Balfour
Achievement quotes by Nanci McGraw
#10. On SUCCESS: "Life Rewards the DO-ers and WOW-makers." (TM) #Quote by Nanci McGraw
Achievement quotes by Jeff Ross
#11. Last time I was in Canada Celine Dion had just given birth to identical twins. Which is quite an achievement given her age and face. #Quote by Jeff Ross
Achievement quotes by Dew Platt
#12. Everywhere are scattered dreams, each its own antecedent; it's precedence in the possibility of its achievement. #Quote by Dew Platt
Achievement quotes by George Sarton
#13. Scientific achievements seem evanescent, because the very progress of science causes their supersedure; yet some of them are of so fundamental a nature that they are immortal in a deeper way. #Quote by George Sarton
Achievement quotes by Alice Foote MacDougall
#14. That is the wearisome part of business - there is no peace, no sense of certain, permanent achievement, no stability. The unexpected, and usually the awful, is forever happening. #Quote by Alice Foote MacDougall
Achievement quotes by Henning Mankell
#15. Although I never marched through the streets shouting for Mao, I do believe that the liberation of China at the end of the 1940s was a wonderful thing and to provide its people with a billion pairs of shoes and trousers was a fantastic achievement. #Quote by Henning Mankell
Achievement quotes by John O'Donohue
#16. Our hunger to belong is the longing to find a bridge across the distance from isolation to intimacy. Every one longs for intimacy and dreams of a nest of belonging in which one is embraced, seen, and loved. Something within each of us cries out for belonging. We can have all the world has to offer in terms of status, achievement, and possessions. Yet without a sense of belonging it all seems empty and pointless. #Quote by John O'Donohue
Achievement quotes by Jerry Spinelli
#17. Great achievement goes through, not around, discouragement. Is there a roadblock in my way, keeping me from something I want to achieve? Am I discouraged? I understand now that discouragement often precedes achievement. Instead of retreating from the roadblock or seeking a way around it, I will boldly punch a hole through it and continue toward my goal. #Quote by Jerry Spinelli
Achievement quotes by Tina Fey
#18. Now let me be clear; millions of women around the world nurse their children beautifully for years without giving anybody else a hard time about it. Teat Nazis are a solely western upper-middle-class phenomenon occurring when highly ambitious women experience deprivation from outside modes of achievement. #Quote by Tina Fey
Achievement quotes by Alain De Botton
#19. The travails of being an employee include not only uncertainty about the duration of one's employment, but also the humiliation of many working practices and dynamics. With most businesses shaped like pyramids, in which a wide base of employees gives way to a narrow tip of managers, the question of who will be rewarded - and who left behind - typically develops into one of the most oppressive of the workplace, and one which, like all anxieties, feeds off uncertainty. Because achievement in most fields is difficult to monitor reliably, the path to promotion or its oppositie can acquire an apparently haphazard connection to results. The succesful alpinist of organizational pyramids may not be the best at their jobs, but those who have best mastered a range of dark political arts in which civilized life does not usually offer instruction. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Achievement quotes by Harbhajan Singh Yogi
#20. Every disability is imagined. Every achievement is an experience. #Quote by Harbhajan Singh Yogi
Achievement quotes by David Lipsky
#21. David Foster Wallace: I think the reason why people behave in an ugly manner is that it's really scary to be alive and to be human, and people are really really afraid. And that the reasons…

That the fear is the basic condition, and there are all kinds of reasons for why we're so afraid. But the fact of the matter is, is that, is that the job that we're here to do is to learn how to live in a way that we're not terrified all the time. And not in a position of using all kinds of different things, and using people to keep that kind of terror at bay. That is my personal opinion.

Well for me, as an American male, the face I'd put on the terror is the dawning realization that nothing's enough, you know? That no pleasure is enough, that no achievement is enough. That there's a kind of queer dissatisfaction or emptiness at the core of the self that is unassuageable by outside stuff. And my guess is that that's been what's going on, ever since people were hitting each other over the head with clubs. Though describable in a number of different words and cultural argots. And that our particular challenge is that there's never been more and better stuff comin' from the outside, that seems temporarily to sort of fill the hole or drown out the hole.

Personally, I believe that if it's assuageable in any way it's by internal means. And I don't know what that means. I think it's fine in some way. I think it's probably assuageable by internal means. I think th #Quote by David Lipsky
Achievement quotes by Patience Strong
#22. Every noble achievement is a dream before it is a reality just as the oak is an acorn before it is a tree. #Quote by Patience Strong
Achievement quotes by Derek R. Audette
#23. The nobility which exists within any cause is to be found not in any achievement, but instead within the struggle. #Quote by Derek R. Audette
Achievement quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#24. Though Argaven might be neither sane nor shrewd, he had had long practice in the evasions and challenges and rhetorical subtleties used in conversation by those whose main aim in life was the achievement and maintenance of the shifgrethor relationship on a high level. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Achievement quotes by Wes Fesler
#25. For every achievement, there is a critic to devalue its worth. #Quote by Wes Fesler
Achievement quotes by Claudia Acevedo
#26. When a person is connected to its true essence, there is nothing more rewarding than continuously developing it; there is no money that can buy the pleasure of putting into practice the talents each person has. #Quote by Claudia Acevedo
Achievement quotes by Saim .A. Cheeda
#27. Greatness is achieved when you feel you have it. The validation is only yours to give, no one else's. #Quote by Saim .A. Cheeda
Achievement quotes by Richard Rohr
#28. The key to entering into the Divine Exchange is never our worthiness but always God's graciousness. Any attempt to measure or increase our worthiness will always fall short, or it will force us into the position of denial and pretend, which produces the constant perception of hypocrisy in religious people.
To switch to an "economy of grace" is a switch that is very hard for humans to make. We base almost everything in human culture on achievement, performance, accomplishment, an equal exchange value, or some kind of worthiness gauge. I call it meritocracy. Unless one personally experiences a dramatic and personal breaking of the rules of merit (forgiveness or undeserved goodness), it is almost impossible to disbelieve or operate outside of its rigid logic. This cannot happen theoretically or abstractly. It cannot happen "out there" but must be known personally "in here. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Achievement quotes by Howard Barker
#29. Theatre should be a taxing experience: the greatest achievement of a writer is to produce a character who creates anxiety. #Quote by Howard Barker
Achievement quotes by Ayn Rand
#30. He, the man of violent energy and passionate ambition, the man of achievement, lighted by the flame of his success and flung into the midst of those pretentious ashes who called themselves an intellectual elite, the burned-out remnants of undigested culture, feeding on the afterglow of the minds of others, offering their denial of the mind as their only claim to distinction, and a craving to control the world as their only lust ... #Quote by Ayn Rand
Achievement quotes by Todd Stocker
#31. Success is never achieved for when your think you reach it, something else grabs your interest. #Quote by Todd Stocker
Achievement quotes by Lorii Myers
#32. Awareness makes us emotionally brilliant. #Quote by Lorii Myers
Achievement quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#33. We achieve everything by our efforts alone. Our fate is not decided by an almighty God. We decide our own fate by our actions. You have to gain mystery over yourself. It is not a matter of sitting back and accepting. #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
Achievement quotes by Shirley Chisholm
#34. I don't measure America by its achievement but by its potential. #Quote by Shirley Chisholm
Achievement quotes by John Eliot
#35. Thinking is a habit, and like any other habit, it can be changed; it just takes effort and repetition. #Quote by John Eliot
Achievement quotes by John Ortberg
#36. The paradox of soul-satisfaction is this: When I die to myself, my soul comes alive. God says the wrong approach to soul thirst is through human achievement and material wealth. So soul-satisfaction is not about acquiring the right things but about acquiring the right soul. It is not something you buy, but something you receive freely from God. Hear these great words of the prophet Isaiah: "Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and [your soul] will delight in the richest of fare." And it will be satisfied. #Quote by John Ortberg
Achievement quotes by Jason Versey
#37. Every great accomplishment has its share of struggle, adversity and pain. Great achievement cannot exist without them. To reap the rewards of success in our marriages, in the lives of our children, and in our professional careers we must be prepared to push through some pretty tough moments. But trust me... on the other side of that struggle awaits an intrinsic reward that is worth more than gold. ~Jason Versey #Quote by Jason Versey
Achievement quotes by Michael Palin
#38. I got my first lifetime achievement award years ago, and I was very excited, but then I got a sense of: Well, can one get a second lifetime award? #Quote by Michael Palin
Achievement quotes by Ahmed Zewail
#39. Higher education should be based on quality, not quantity; receive merit-based funding; and be free of unnecessary bureaucracy. Not the least of the benefits of educational reform is to foster the pride of achievement at national and international levels. #Quote by Ahmed Zewail
Achievement quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#40. I suggested then that the prize was not given merely as recognition of past achievement, but also as recognition, a more profound recognition, that the nonviolent way, the American Negro's way, was the answer to the crucial political and moral question of our time: the need for man to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to violence and oppression. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Achievement quotes by Napoleon Hill
#41. Fear of poverty is a state of mind, nothing else! But it is sufficient to destroy one's chances of achievement in any undertaking, a truth which became painfully evident during the depression. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Achievement quotes by Michael Lewis
#42. Success was individual achievement; failure was a social problem. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Achievement quotes by Siad Barre
#43. In our Revolution we believe that we have broken the chain of a consumer economy based on imports, and we are free to decide our destiny . And in order to realize the interests of the Somali people, their achievement of a better life, the full development of their potentialities and the fulfilment of their aspirations, we solemnly declare Somalia to be a Socialist State. #Quote by Siad Barre
Achievement quotes by Srully Blotnick
#44. What looks like a loss may be the very event which is subsequently responsible for helping to produce the major achievement of your life #Quote by Srully Blotnick
Achievement quotes by Norman Cousins
#45. Nature has not been lavish in her endowments, but each person has his or her own potential in terms of achievement and service. The awareness of that potential is the discovery of purpose; the fulfillment of that potential is the discovery of strength. #Quote by Norman Cousins
Achievement quotes by C.S. Lewis
#46. The Life-Force is a sort of tame God. You can switch it on when you want, but it will not bother you. All the thrills of religion and none of the cost. Is the Life-Force the greatest achievement of wishful thinking the world has yet seen? #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Achievement quotes by David Berlinski
#47. At the beginning of the new millennium, we still do not know why mathematics is true and whether it is certain. But we know what we do not know in an immeasurably richer way than we did. And learning this has been a remarkable achievement-among the greatest and least-known of the modern era. #Quote by David Berlinski
Achievement quotes by Mike Ditka
#48. Life's not about money. Look at achievements, accomplishments . It's about having fun. It's about enjoying life. #Quote by Mike Ditka
Achievement quotes by John D. Zizioulas
#49. The Church is not simply an institution. She is a 'mode of existence,' *a way of being*. The mystery of the Church is deeply bound to the being of man, to the being of the world and to the very being of God.
Ecclesial being is bound to the very being of God. From the fact that a human being is a member of the Church, he becomes [participates as/in] an 'image of God', he exists as God Himself exists, takes on God's *way of being*. This way of being is not a moral attainment, something that man *accomplishes*. It is a way of *relationship* with the world, with other people and with God, as an event of *communion*, and that is why it cannot be realized as the achievement of an *individual*, but only as an *ecclesial* fact.
However, for the Church to present this way of existence, she must herself be an image of the way in which God exists. Her entire structure, her ministries etc. must express this way of existence. #Quote by John D. Zizioulas
Achievement quotes by Ian Macfarlane
#50. A government cannot be expected to allow independence to its central bank unless that bank is also accountable to it and to the wider public. That is, the central bank must be able to be judged on whether or not it has achieved its agreed objective. #Quote by Ian Macfarlane
Achievement quotes by Oghenovo Obrimah
#51. There is a time for everything. There is a time for a leader to allow those over whom he has authority to demonstrate what they are about and their capabilities. There also is a time for a leader to utilize knowledge garnered while silent to bring about stability in interpersonal relationships within the context of the achievement of organizational goals or institutional objectives. #Quote by Oghenovo Obrimah
Achievement quotes by Jordyn Wieber
#52. Don't look at the big picture as the only achievement. Start with set, smart goals and work up to something bigger. #Quote by Jordyn Wieber
Achievement quotes by Jim Trelease
#53. Which Country Has the Best Readers? One of the most comprehensive international reading studies was conducted by Warwick Elley for the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) in 1990 and 1991. Involving thirty-two countries, it assessed 210,000 nine- and fourteen-year-olds.22 Of all those children, which ones read best? For nine-year-olds, the four top nations were: Finland (569), the United States (547), Sweden (539), and France (531). But the U.S. position dropped to a tie for eighth when fourteen-year-olds were evaluated. This demonstrates that American children begin reading at a level that is among the best in the world, but since reading is an accrued skill and U.S. children appear to do less of it as they grow older, their scores decline when compared with countries where children read more as they mature. #Quote by Jim Trelease
Achievement quotes by Joseph J. Ellis
#55. In a very real sense, we are complicitous in their achievement, since we are the audience for which they were performing; knowing we would be watching helped to keep them on their best behavior. #Quote by Joseph J. Ellis
Achievement quotes by Irena Deneva
#56. I cannot conceive of a greater loss than the loss of one's self-respect. Decedents of the beautiful women that fought so hard for centuries to be equal and not objects of men's will, only their achievement to die in vain. As today's woman single desire is to be any men's object by any means on her part. Talk about irony ... #Quote by Irena Deneva
Achievement quotes by Marion Milner
#57. I had been continually exhorted to define my purpose in life, but I was now beginning to doubt whether life might not be too complex a thing to be kept within the bounds of a single formulated purpose, whether it would not burst its way out, or if the purpose were too strong, perhaps grow distorted like an oak whose trunk has been encircled with an iron band. I began to guess that my self's need was for an equilibrium, for sun, but not too much, for rain, but not always… So I began to have an idea of my life, not as the slow shaping of achievement to fit my preconceived purposes, but as the gradual discovery and growth of a purpose which I did not know. I wrote: "It will mean walking in a fog for a bit, but it's the only way which is not a presumption, forcing the self into a theory. #Quote by Marion Milner
Achievement quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#58. When we fail, we think that is the end of life. Actually, it is the beginning of a greater life when we persistently preserved. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Achievement quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#59. Dream what others do not.
Imagine what others have not.
Do what others will not.
Achieve what others could not. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Achievement quotes by William S. Wilson
#60. Evolution propels itself by an inclination toward its next probable achievement." ("Desire") #Quote by William S. Wilson
Achievement quotes by Alain De Botton
#61. The Romantic vision of marriage stresses the importance of finding the "right" person, which is taken to mean someone in sympathy with the raft of our interests and values. There is no such person over the long term. We are too varied and peculiar. There cannot be lasting congruence. The partner truly best suited to us is not the one who miraculously happens to share every taste but the one who can negotiate differences in taste with intelligence and good grace.

Rather than some notional idea of perfect complementarity, it is the capacity to tolerate dissimilarity that is the true marker of the "right" person. Compatibility is an achievement of love; it shouldn't be its precondition. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Achievement quotes by Brian Godawa
#62. Molech's signature achievement was his tophet altars where worshippers "passed their children through the fire." They were usually bronze statues of himself with a bull's head, seated with outstretched arms to place the child over the flames. It was so bold and brilliant that Ba'al had stolen his idea and used it for his own altars. The muscle-bound brute didn't have an original thought in his puny little skull. Molech made himself invisible to his worshippers, as the Watcher gods typically did in these latter days. In primeval days, the days of Noah, they had walked amongst men and engaged in the open. It was almost as if the growth of knowledge and technology had the deleterious effect on humans of blinding them more and more to the spiritual world around them. It was just as well. The gods could achieve things through hiding that they could not through visible means. #Quote by Brian Godawa
Achievement quotes by Zero Dean
#63. Don't let your life goals fall victim to the allure of comfortable routines. #Quote by Zero Dean
Achievement quotes by David J
#64. Nothing - absolutely nothing - in this life gives you more satisfaction than knowing you're on the road to success and achievement. And nothing stands as a bigger challenge than making the most of yourself. #Quote by David J
Achievement quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#65. It is not enough to take steps which may someday lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Achievement quotes by Julie Murphy
#66. there is no higher achievement for a southern woman than the ability to eat barbecue and walk away stain free. #Quote by Julie Murphy
Achievement quotes by Rick Pitino
#67. Postponing action is only postponing achievement. #Quote by Rick Pitino
Achievement quotes by Bear Grylls
#68. Our achievements are generally limited only by the beliefs we impose on ourselves. #Quote by Bear Grylls
Achievement quotes by Arnold Schwarzenegger
#69. Almost anything difficult, any challenge takes time, patience, and hard work. #Quote by Arnold Schwarzenegger
Achievement quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#70. There are several specific things that the church can do. First, it should try to get to the ideational roots of race hate, something that the law cannot accomplish. All race prejudice is based upon fears, suspicions, and misunderstandings, usually groundless. The church can be of immeasurable help in giving the popular mind direction here. Through its channels of religious education, the church can point out the irrationality of these beliefs. It can show that the idea of a superior or inferior race is a myth that has been completely refuted by anthropological evidence. It can show that Negroes are not innately inferior in academic, health, and moral standards. It can show that, when given equal opportunities, Negroes can demonstrate equal achievement. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Achievement quotes by C.S. Lewis
#71. Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Achievement quotes by Robert D. Putnam
#72. The achievement gap between children from high income and low income families is roughly 30-40% larger among children born in 2001 than among those born 25 years ago. The class gap among students entering kindergarten was two to three times higher than the racial gap. #Quote by Robert D. Putnam
Achievement quotes by John Ridley
#73. It is time to celebrate the New Black Americans - those who have sealed the Deal, who aren't beholden to liberal indulgence any more than they are to the disdain of the hard Right. It is time to praise blacks who are merely undeniable in their individuality and exemplary in their levels of achievement. #Quote by John Ridley
Achievement quotes by Sheryl Sandberg
#74. Women don't take enough risks. Men are just 'foot on the gas pedal.' We're not going to close the achievement gap until we close the ambition gap. #Quote by Sheryl Sandberg
Achievement quotes by Howard W. Hunter
#75. Realizing who we are and what we may become assures us that with God nothing really is impossible. From the time we learn that Jesus wants us for a Sunbeam until we learn more fully the basic principles of the gospel, we are taught to strive for perfection. It is not new to us then to talk of the importance of achievement. The difficulty arises when inflated expectations of the world alter our definition of greatness. #Quote by Howard W. Hunter
Achievement quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#76. Civilization owes to the Islamic world some of its most important tools and achievements ... the Muslim genius has added much to the culture of all peoples. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Achievement quotes by Buzz Aldrin
#77. I expected the unexpected and went [on the Moon] with an open mind. I think the visual scene was described by my words on first landing - "magnificent desolation." Magnificent for the achievement of being there, and desolate for the eons of lifelessness. #Quote by Buzz Aldrin
Achievement quotes by David W. Orr
#78. Journey of the Universe is eloquent, accessible, and powerful, and conveys a sense of wonder ranging from the cosmos to the microcosm
in itself a considerable achievement. This is one of the most compelling and inspiring works I've read in a long time. #Quote by David W. Orr
Achievement quotes by Robert Spencer
#79. We love death more than you love life.' This is civilization's ultimate challenge. Will the lovers of death and destruction overwhelm and defeat those who love life and have created great civilizations that celebrate human creativity and achievement? Will all that is left of three thousand years of human civilization be reduced to rubble and a mindless religio-ideological lockstep?
The Islamic State is not just a challenge to Judeo-Christian Western civilization. It is a challenge to civilization itself--to the very idea of civilization.
And that is why it is doomed to fail. Life will always conquer death in the end. The human spirit will always prevail against the forces that would subjugate and enslave it. #Quote by Robert Spencer
Achievement quotes by Sukant Ratnakar
#80. Man's most important achievement is not about standing up and start walking but, standing up to speak the truth. #Quote by Sukant Ratnakar
Achievement quotes by Oliver Sacks
#81. Some sense of ongoing, of "next," is always with us. But this sense of movement, of happening, Greg lacked; he seemed immured, without knowing it, in a motionless, timeless moment. And whereas for the rest of us the present is given its meaning and depth by the past (hence it becomes the "remembered present," in Gerald Edelman's term), as well as being given potential and tension by the future, for Greg it was flat and (in its meager way) complete. This living-in-the-moment, which was so manifestly pathological, had been perceived in the temple as an achievement of higher consciousness. G #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Achievement quotes by Amen Muffler
#82. Big houses are not build by big or powerful men but rather by ambitious and determined men. Their achievements make them big/powerful men #Quote by Amen Muffler
Achievement quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#83. In the game of football, you least complain, shout, talk or blame your opponents or the referee continuously throughout the game just because of your opponents opposition, strength or antics to ensure that you lose focus and lose the game; winning the game is your true aim. Such is life! You must do all you ought to do to score your goals notwithstanding the oppositions and how life will play the game of life with you! Be a goal getter! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Achievement quotes by James Comey
#84. In that moment, something else occurred to me: The "leader of the free world," the self-described great business tycoon, didn't understand leadership. Ethical leaders never ask for loyalty. Those leading through fear – like a Cosa Nostra boss- require personal loyalty. Ethical leaders care deeply about those they lead, and offer them honesty and decency, commitment and their own sacrifice. They have a confidence that breeds humility. Ethical leaders know their own talent but fear their own limitations-to understand and reason, to see the world as it is and not as they wish it to be. They speak the truth and know that making wise decisions requires people to tell them the truth. And to get that truth, they create an environment of high standards and deep consideration – "love" is not too strong a word – that builds lasting bonds and makes extraordinary achievement possible. It would never occur to an ethical leader to ask for loyalty. #Quote by James Comey
Achievement quotes by Al Duncan
#85. Most people aren't unsuccessful in life because they don't know what to do. They are unsuccessful because they don't DO what they know how to do. Knowledge is power IF ... you use it. #Quote by Al Duncan
Achievement quotes by Janet Jackson
#86. The greatest achievement to any human being is to love God, yourself, and others. #Quote by Janet Jackson
Achievement quotes by Florence King
#87. Americans respect talent only insofar as it leads to fame, and we reserve our most fervent admiration for famous people who destroy their lives as well as their talent. The fatal flaws of Elvis, Judy, and Marilyn register much higher on our national applause meter than their living achievements. In Amerca, talent is merely a tool for becoming famous in life so you can become more famous in death - where all are equal. #Quote by Florence King
Achievement quotes by Paul Tough
#88. Wealthy parents today, she argues, are more likely than others to be emotionally distant from their children while at the same time insisting on high levels of achievement, a potentially toxic blend of influences that can create "intense feelings of shame and hopelessness" in affluent children. #Quote by Paul Tough
Achievement quotes by Bradley B. Dalina
#89. If you can't reach your dreams,
If you can't achieve your goals,
If you can't meet your plans,

Least be happy each day

Success is not an annual achievement,
It's a daily achievement. #Quote by Bradley B. Dalina
Achievement quotes by Michelle Obama
#90. The only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work hard for them. #Quote by Michelle Obama
Achievement quotes by Harold B. Lee
#91. The path to [exaltation] is rugged and steep. Many stumble and fall, and through discouragement never pick themselves up to start again. The forces of evil cloud the path with many foggy deterrents, often trying to detour us in misleading trails. But through all this journey there is the calming assurance that if we choose the
right, success will be ours, and the achievement of it will have molded and formed and created us into the kind of person qualified to be accepted into the presence of God. #Quote by Harold B. Lee
Achievement quotes by Justin Kelly
#92. Achievement never makes one feel better. Most likely to make you feel worse. Feeling better is what makes people feel better. #Quote by Justin Kelly
Achievement quotes by Steven Magee
#93. I can guarantee you that my mistakes far outweigh my achievements because a single achievement is the fruition of many mistakes. #Quote by Steven Magee
Achievement quotes by Pat Conroy
#94. I will take you down my own avenue of remembrance, which winds among the hazards and shadows of my single year as a plebe. I cannot come to this story in full voice. I want to speak for the boys who were violated by this school, the ones who left ashamed and broken and dishonored, who departed from the Institute with wounds and bitter grievances. I want also to speak for the triumphant boys who took everything the system could throw at them, endured every torment and excess, and survived the ordeal of the freshman year with a feeling of transformation and achievement that they never had felt before and would never know again with such clarity and elation.

I will speak from my memory- my memory- a memory that is all refracting light slanting through prisms and dreams, a shifting, troubled riot of electrons charged with pain and wonder. My memory often seems like a city of exiled poets afire with the astonishment of language, each believing in the integrity of his own witness, each with a separate version of culture and history, and the divine essentional fire that is poetry itself.

But i will try to isolate that one lonely singer who gathered the fragments of my plebe year and set the screams to music. For many years, I have refused to listen as his obsessive voice narrated the malignant litany of crimes against my boyhood. We isolate those poets who cause us the greatest pain; we silence them in any way we can. I have never allowed this furious dissi #Quote by Pat Conroy
Achievement quotes by Alice Bailey
#95. I suggest that just as self-consciousness is the goal for all the subhuman forms of life, and as group consciousness, or the consciousness of the Heavenly Man, is the goal for the human being, so for him, also, there may be a goal, and for him the achievement may be the development of God consciousness. #Quote by Alice Bailey
Achievement quotes by Timothy Geithner
#96. The major economic policy challenges facing the nation today - pick your favorites among the usual suspects of low public and household savings, concerns about educational quality and achievement, high and rising income inequality, the large imbalances between our social insurance commitments and resources - are not about monetary policy. #Quote by Timothy Geithner
Achievement quotes by Leddy Harper
#97. It's the hard things in life that hold the most achievement. Would you rather win a small-town race or win the gold at the Olympics? Think of this as the big games, the Mount Everest. Tackle it, conquer it, and bring home the gold. #Quote by Leddy Harper
Achievement quotes by Shunryu Suzuki
#98. It is said that there are four kinds of horses: excellent ones, good ones, poor ones, and bad ones. The best horse will run slow and fast, right and left, at the driver's will, before it sees the shadow of the whip; the second best will run as well as the first one does, just before the whip reaches its skin; the third one will run when it feels pain on its body; the fourth will run after the pain penetrates to the marrow of its bones. You can imagine how difficult it is for the fourth one to learn how to run!

When we hear this story, almost all of us want to be the best horse. If it is impossible to be the best one, we want to be the second best. That is, I think, the usual understanding of this story, and of Zen. You may think that when you sit in zazen you will find out whether you are one of the best horses or one of the worst ones. Here, however, there is a misunderstanding of Zen. If you think the aim of Zen practice is to train you to become one of the best horses, you will have a big problem. This is not the right understanding. If you practice Zen in the right way it does not matter whether you are the best horse or the worst one. When you consider the mercy of Buddha, how do you think Buddha will feel about the four kinds of horses? He will have more sympathy for the worst one than for the best one.

When you are determined to practice zazen with the great mind of Buddha, you will find the worst horse is the most valuable one. In your very imper #Quote by Shunryu Suzuki
Achievement quotes by Robert Frost
#99. Always fall in with what you're asked to accept. Take what is given, and make it over your way. My aim in life has always been to hold my own with whatever's going. Not against: with. #Quote by Robert Frost
Achievement quotes by Orison S. Marden
#100. The size and quality of your achievement will depend largely upon what sort of image you have of yourself at your best. #Quote by Orison S. Marden

#101. They aren't roadblocks. They're signposts. #Quote by Richie Norton
Achievement quotes by Roger Kimball
#102. What the historian Elie Kedourie called "the Chatham House Version" - that toxic amalgam of smugness, moral relativism, and cherished feelings of guilt about the achievements of Western civilization - everywhere nurtured the catechism of established opinion. #Quote by Roger Kimball
Achievement quotes by Whitley Strieber
#103. Would we, if we could, educate and sophisticate pigs, geese, cattle? Would it be wise to establish diplomatic relation with the hen that now functions, satisfied with mere sense of achievement by way of compensation? I think we're property. #Quote by Whitley Strieber
Achievement quotes by Dan Baum
#104. Other people's children went off to college, which for years Ronald had interpreted as a positive thing. Lately, though, he wasn't so sure. The children who went off to college hardly ever came back. It was as though the hard work of getting that college degree bent them out of shape, focused them too much on their own personal achievement. Once you got that degree, it was all about getting ahead in that monetized struggle, and they forgot the community that raised them. Ooh, live in the Lower Nine; not me. Ooh, do a day's work with your hands; I won't touch that. The neighborhood gained something when one of its children went off to become a doctor or an engineer, but it lost something, too. #Quote by Dan Baum
Achievement quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#105. Perhaps you have been wondering about how you will win the tournaments of life. This is an important moment of your life. Just know where your goals are. Dress in the jersey of action and enter the game of vision! Work with your talents, skills, and tactics and with determination!
Don't commit any foul; don't put yourself on an offside position. Be at the right place at the right time. Attack your failures and defend your goals; look up and watch the time because the whistle may blow at any time. Don't waste the chances you get! Target the goals and with winning in focus, you will be there! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Achievement quotes by Agatha Christie
#106. Achievement brings with it its own anticlimax. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Achievement quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
#107. In both children and adults, there can be a hard-to-deny link between a robust sense of hope and either work productivity or academic achievement. #Quote by Jeffrey Kluger
Achievement quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#108. In a highly performing team everyone achieves better than he/she would have achieved when working alone. #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Achievement quotes by Samuel Beckett
#109. Yes, now my mind is easy, I know the game is won, I lost them all till now, but it's the last that counts. A very fine achievement I must say, or rather would, if I did not fear to contradict myself. Fear to contradict myself! If this continues it is myself I shall lose and the thousand ways that lead there. And I shall resemble the wretches famed in fable, crushed beneath the weight of their wish come true. And I even feel a strange desire come over me, the desire to know what I am doing, and why. So I near the goal I set myself in my young days and which prevented me from living. And on the threshold of being no more I succeed in being another. Very pretty. #Quote by Samuel Beckett
Achievement quotes by Orison Swett Marden
#110. Whatever comes to us in life we create first in our mentality. As the building is a reality in all its details in the architects mind before a stone or brick is laid, so we create mentally everything which later becomes a reality in our achievement. #Quote by Orison Swett Marden
Achievement quotes by James Clear
#111. Happiness is simply the absence of desire.- When you observe a cue, but do not desire to change your state, you are content with the current situation. Happiness is not about the achievement of pleasure, but about the lack of desire. It arrives when you have no urge to feel differently. Happiness is the state you enter when you no longer want to change your state.
As Caed Budris says, "Happiness is the space between on desire being fulfilled and a new desire forming. #Quote by James Clear

Achievement quotes by Wendy Kopp
#113. We're looking for people out there who have demonstrated that they are leaders, have track records of achievement, and want to be part of a force ... of a much larger force of determined people who want to bring about, ultimately, institutional change. #Quote by Wendy Kopp
Achievement quotes by Eric Weiner
#114. In a fascinating study, psychologist David McClelland found a direct link between Greek accomplishments and the prominence of "achievement themes" in the literature of the day. The greater the amount of such inspirational literature, the greater their "real-world" achievements. Conversely, when the frequency of inspirational literature diminished, so did their accomplishments. At #Quote by Eric Weiner
Achievement quotes by Dan Millman
#115. Wake up! Wake up! Soon the person you believe you are will die - so now, wake up and be content with this knowledge: There is no need to search; achievement leads to nowhere. It makes no difference at all, so just be happy now! Love is the only reality of the world, because it is all One, you see. And the only laws are paradox, humor, and change. There is no problem, never was, and never will be. Release your struggle, let go of your mind, throw away your concerns, and relax into the world. No need to resist life; just do your best. Open your eyes and see that you are far more than you imagine. You are the world, you are the universe; you are yourself and everyone else, too! It's all the marvelous Play of God. Wake up, regain your humor. Don't worry, you are already free!" I #Quote by Dan Millman

Achievement quotes by Ayn Rand
#121. If so, there are - again - two possible attitudes to take. We can say that these twelve were great benefactors, that we are all fed by the overflow of the magnificent wealth of their spirit, and that we are glad to accept it in gratitude and brotherhood. Or, we can say that by the splendor of their achievement which we can neither equal nor keep, these twelve have shown us what we are, that we do not want the free gifts of their grandeur, that a cave by an oozing swamp and a fire of sticks rubbed together are preferable to skyscrapers and neon lights - if the cave and the sticks are the limit of our own creative capacities. Of the two attitudes, Dominique, which would you call the truly humanitarian one? Because, you see, I'm a humanitarian. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Achievement quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#122. To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of life. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Achievement quotes by Ayn Rand
#123. He lost, for that moment, all the days and dogmas of his past; his concepts, his problems, his pain were wiped out; he knew only - as from a great, clear distance - that man exists for the achievement of his desires, and he wondered why he stood here, he wondered who had the right to demand that he waste a single irreplaceable hour of his life, when his only desire was to seize the slender figure in gray and hold her through the length of whatever time there was left for him to exist. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Achievement quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#124. Sports allow men to build up situations of emergency. What he then demands of himself is unnecessary achievement - and unnecessary sacrifice. He artificially creates the tension that he has been spared by affluent society. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Achievement quotes by Marian Wright Edelman
#125. You can achieve much in life if you don't mind doing the work and giving someone else the credit. #Quote by Marian Wright Edelman
Achievement quotes by Martin Seligman
#126. Optimism is a tool with a certain clear set of benefits: it fights depression, it promotes achievement and produces better health. #Quote by Martin Seligman
Achievement quotes by Camille Paglia
#127. Men have sacrificed and crippled themselves physically and emotionally to feed, house, and protect women and children. None of their pain or achievement is registered in feminist rhetoric, which portrays men as oppressive and callous exploiters. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Achievement quotes by Grenville Kleiser
#128. Let your desire for truth transcend all minor considerations. Ignorance is invariably confident. The man of knowledge learns to realize his own needs. Be honest and severe in your self-appraisal. Learn the art of learning, and you are well on the way to achievement. True greatness is reflective, not assertive. #Quote by Grenville Kleiser
Achievement quotes by Stephen Mansfield
#129. Depend upon it, behind all great achievement there lies great toil: nothing that is worth doing is done easily. #Quote by Stephen Mansfield
Achievement quotes by Clinton Rossiter
#130. The establishment of religious freedom was no less momentous an achievement than the clearing of the great forest or the winning of independence, for the twin doctrines of separation of church and state and liberty of individual conscience are the marrow of our democracy, if not indeed America's most magnificent contribution to the freeing of Western man. #Quote by Clinton Rossiter
Achievement quotes by Tom Wolfe
#131. We must be careful to make a distinction between the intellectual and the person of intellectual achievement. The two are very, very different animals. There are people of intellectual achievement who increase the sum of human knowledge, the powers of human insight, and analysis. And then there are the intellectuals. An intellectual is a person knowledgeable in one field who speaks out only in others. Starting in the early twentieth century, for the first time an ordinary storyteller, a novelist, a short story writer, a poet, a playwright, in certain cases a composer, an artist, or even an opera singer could achieve a tremendous eminence by becoming morally indignant about some public issue. It required no intellectual effort whatsoever. Suddenly he was elevated to a plane from which he could look down upon ordinary people. Conversely - this fascinates me - conversely, if you are merely a brilliant scholar, merely someone who has added immeasurably to the sum of human knowledge and the powers of human insight, that does not qualify you for the eminence of being an intellectual. #Quote by Tom Wolfe

Achievement quotes by Herbert Hoover
#134. More than ten million women march to work every morning side by side with the men. Steadily the importance of women is gaining notonly in the routine tasks of industry but in executive responsibility. I include also the woman who stays at home as the guardian of the welfare of the family. She is a partner in the job and wages. Women constitute a part of our industrial achievement. #Quote by Herbert Hoover

Achievement quotes by Aleksandar Hemon
#136. The privilege of a middle-class, stable, bourgeois life is that you can pretend that you are not complicated and project yourself as a solid, uncomplicated person, with refined life goals and achievements. #Quote by Aleksandar Hemon

Achievement quotes by Susan Cain
#139. How is it that Asians and Westerners can look at the same classroom interactions and one group will label it class participation and the other talking nonsense? The Chinese emphasize deeper attributes focusing on moral virtues and achievement. Another study asked Asian-Americans and European-Americans to think out loud while solving reasoning problems, and found that the Asians did much better when they were allowed to be quiet, compared to the Caucasians, who performed well when vocalizing their problem solving. These results would not surprise anyone familiar with traditional Asian attitudes to the spoke word: Talk is for communicating need to know information; quiet and introspection are signs of deep thought and higher truth. #Quote by Susan Cain
Achievement quotes by Olaf Stapledon
#140. It was strange to us that none of these three victims made any attempt to resist the attack. Indeed, not one inhabitant in any of these worlds considered for a moment the possibility of resistance. In every case the attitude to disaster seemed to express itself in such terms as these:
To retaliate would be to wound our communal spirit beyond cure. We choose rather to die. The theme of spirit that we have created must inevitably be broken short, whether by the ruthlessness of the invader or by our own resort to arms. It is better to be destroyed than to triumph in slaying the spirit. Such as it is, the spirit that we have achieved is fair; and it is indestructibly woven into the tissue of the cosmos. We die praising the universe in which at least such an achievement as ours can be. We die knowing that the promise of further glory outlives us in other galaxies. We die praising the Star Maker, the Star Destroyer. #Quote by Olaf Stapledon

Achievement quotes by Wendy Mogel
#143. A Hasidic teaching says, "If your child has a talent to be a baker, don't tell him to be a doctor." Judaism holds that every child is made in the divine image. When we ignore a child's intrinsic strengths in an effort to push him toward our notion of extraordinary achievement, we are undermining God's plan. #Quote by Wendy Mogel
Achievement quotes by J. Gresham Machen
#144. A public-school system, if it means the providing of free education for those who desire it, is a noteworthy and beneficent achievement of modern times; but when once it becomes monopolistic it is the most perfect instrument for tyranny which has yet been devised. Freedom of thought in the middle ages was combated by the Inquisition, but the modern method is far more effective.' (1923) #Quote by J. Gresham Machen
Achievement quotes by Saul Bellow
#145. I feel that art has something to do with the achievement of stillness in the midst of chaos. A stillness which characterizes prayer, too, and the eye of the storm. I think that art has something to do with an arrest of attention in the midst of distraction. #Quote by Saul Bellow

Achievement quotes by Walter Isaacson
#149. Coming back to America was, for me, much more of a cultural shock than going to India. The people in the Indian countryside don't use their intellect like we do, they use their intuition instead, and their intuition is far more developed than in the rest of the world. Intuition is a very powerful thing, more powerful than intellect, in my opinion.
Western rational thought is not an innate human characteristic; it is learned and is the great achievement of Western civilization. In the villages of India, they never learned it. They learned something else, which is in some ways just as valuable but in other ways is not. That's the power of intuition and experiential wisdom.
Coming back after seven months in Indian villages, I saw the craziness of the Western world as well as its capacity for rational thought. If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is. If you try to calm it, it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there's room to hear more subtle things - that's when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before. It's a discipline; you have to practice it."
- Steve Jobs #Quote by Walter Isaacson

Achievement quotes by Walter Isaacson
#154. When he went to PARC for his formal interview, Kay was asked what he hoped his great achievement there would be. "A personal computer," he answered. Asked what that was, he picked up a notebook-size portfolio, flipped open its cover, and said, "This will be a flat-panel display. There'll be a keyboard here on the bottom, and enough power to store your mail, files, music, artwork, and books. All in a package about this size and weighing a couple of pounds. That's what I'm talking about." His interviewer scratched his head and muttered to himself, "Yeah, right." But Kay got the job. #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Achievement quotes by Albert Einstein
#155. Nevertheless, it is necessary to remember that a planned economy is not yet socialism. A planned economy as such may be accompanied by the complete enslavement of the individual. The achievement of socialism requires the solution of some extremely difficult socio-political problems: how is it possible, in view of the far-reaching centralisation of political and economic power, to prevent bureaucracy from becoming all-powerful and overweening? How can the rights of the individual be protected and therewith a democratic counterweight to the power of bureaucracy be assured? #Quote by Albert Einstein
Achievement quotes by James Allen
#156. Achievement of any kind is the crown of effort,the diadem of thought.By the aid of self-control, resolution, purity, righteousness, and well-directed thought a man ascends.By the aid of animality,indolence,impurity,corruption,and confusion of thought a man descends. #Quote by James Allen
Achievement quotes by Leo Tolstoy

Achievement quotes by Jessica Lahey
#158. the ability to attend to a task and stick to long-term goals is the greatest predictor of success, greater than academic achievement, extracurricular involvement, test scores, and IQ. She calls this grit, and first discovered its power in the classroom, while teaching seventh-grade math. She left teaching to pursue research on her hunch, and her findings have changed the way educators perceive student potential. Gritty students succeed, and failure strengthens grit like no other crucible. #Quote by Jessica Lahey

Achievement quotes by Emily Maroutian
#160. Your power is not in yesterday or in tomorrow. It's not over there somewhere waiting for you to reach it. It's not hidden behind some goal or achievement. Your power is right here, right now. Your power is today. What will you do with today? #Quote by Emily Maroutian
Achievement quotes by Marianne Williamson
#161. Achievement doesn't come from what we do, but from who we are. Our worldly power results from our personal power. Our career is an extension of our personality. People who profoundly achieve aren't necessarily people who do so much, they're people around whom things get done. Mahatma Gandhi and JFK were great examples of this. Their great achievements lay in all the energy they stirred in other people, the invisible forces they unleashed around them. By touching their own depths, they touched the depths within others. That kind of charisma, the power to affect what happens on the earth, from an invisible realm within is the natural right and function of the son of god. New frontiers are internal ones, the real stretch is always within us. Instead of expanding our ability or willingness to go out and get anything, we expand our ability to receive what is already here for us. Personal power emanates from someone who takes life seriously. The universe takes us as seriously as we take it. There is no greater seriousness than the full appreciation of the power and importance of love. Miracles flow from the recognition that love is the purpose of our career. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Achievement quotes by Linda Abraham

Achievement quotes by Gary Keller
#166. If everyone has the same number of hours in the day, why do some people seem to get so much more done than others? How do they do more, achieve more, earn more, have more? If time is the currency of achievement, then why are some able to cash in their allotment for more chips than others?
The answer is they make getting to the heart of things the heart of their approach. They go small. Going small is ignoring all the things you could do and doing what you should do. It's recognizing that not all things matter equally and finding the things that matter most. It's a tighter way to connect what you do with what you want. It's realizing that extraordinary results are directly determined by how narrow you can make your focus. #Quote by Gary Keller

All the labours of ages, all the devotion, all the inspiration, all the noon-day brightness of human genius, are destined to extinciton in the vast death of the solar system, and that the whole temple of Man's achievement must inevitably be buried beneath the debris of a universe in ruins. #Quote by Bertrand Russell

Achievement quotes by Stephen Ambrose
#179. D-Day represents the greatest achievement of the american people and system in the 20th century. It was the pivot point of the 20th century. It was the day on which the decision was made as to who was going to rule in this world in the second half of the 20th century. Is it going to be Nazism, is it going to be communism, or are the democracies going to prevail? #Quote by Stephen Ambrose

Achievement quotes by Seth Godin
#183. The thing is, incremental daily progress (negative or positive) is what actually causes transformation. A figurative drip, drip, drip. Showing up, every single day, gaining in strength, organizing for the long haul, building connection, laying track  -  this subtle but difficult work is how culture changes. #Quote by Seth Godin
Achievement quotes by Ralph Ellison
#184. But seriously, because you both fail to understand what is happening to you. You cannot see or hear or smell the truth of what you see
and you, looking for destiny! It's classic! And the boy, this automaton, he was made of the very mud of the region and he sees far less than you. Poor stumblers, neither of you can see the other. To you he is a mark on the score-card of your achievement, a thing and not a man; a child, or even less
a black amorphous thing. And you, for all your power, are not a man to him, but a God, a force

Achievement quotes by Kay Redfield Jamison
#191. During the Renaissance there was a renewed interest in the relationship between genius, melancholia, and madness. A stronger distinction was made between sane melancholies of high achievement and individuals whose insanity prevented them from using their ability. The eighteenth century witnessed a sharp change in attitude; balance and rational thought, rather than "inspiration" and emotional extremes, were seen as the primary components of genius. #Quote by Kay Redfield Jamison
Achievement quotes by John Tottenham
#192. Life Without Work
To do nothing

When so much pointless work
Is being produced,
Could almost be considered an achievement.
It all compares most unfavorably
With my own imaginary
Body of work. #Quote by John Tottenham

Achievement quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#194. Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. Make all your friends feel there is something special in them. Look at the sunny side of everything. Think only the best, be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger. #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale
Achievement quotes by Rick Yancey
#195. It occurred to me ... that aberrance is a wholly human construct. There were no such things as monsters outside the human mind. We are vain and arrogant, evolution's highest achievement and most dismal failure, prisoners of our self-awareness and the illusion that we stand in the center, that there is us and then there is everything else but us. But we do not stand apart from or above or in the middle of anything. There is nothing apart, nothing above, and the middle is everywhere - and nowhere. We are no more beautiful and essential or magnificent than an earthworm. In fact - and dare we go there, you and I? - you could say the worm is more beautiful, because it is innocent and we are not. The worm has no motive but to survive long enough to make baby worms. There is no betrayal, no cruelty, no envy, no lust, and no hatred in the worm's heart, and so who are the monsters and which species shall we call aberrant? #Quote by Rick Yancey
Achievement quotes by Terry Goodkind
#196. Evil is not one large entity, but a collection of countless, small depravities brought up from the muck by petty men. Many have traded the enrichment of vision for a gray fog of mediocrity--the fertile inspiration of striving and growth, for mindless stagnation and slow decay--the brave new ground of the attempt, for the timid quagmire of apathy. Many of you have traded freedom not even for a bowl of soup, but worse, for the spoken empty feelings of others who say that you deserve to have a full bowl of soup provided by someone else. Happiness, joy, accomplishment, achievement . . . are not finite commodities, to be divided up. Is a child's laughter to be divided and allotted? No! Simply make more laughter! Every person's life is theirs by right. An individual's life can and must belong only to himself, not to any society or community, or he is then but a slave. No one can deny another person their right to their life, nor seize by force what is produced by someone else, because that is stealing their means to sustain their life. It is treason against mankind to hold a knife to a man's throat and dictate how he must live his life. No society can be more important than the individuals who compose it, or else you ascribe supreme importance, not to man, but to any notion that strikes the fancy of the society, at a never-ending cost of lives. Reason and reality are the only means to just laws; mindless wishes, if given sovereignty, become deadly masters. Surrendering reason to fa #Quote by Terry Goodkind

#197. Man does work for profit in order to enjoy pain; but in a positive sense, he works to enjoy the excitement and meaning that achievement provides for his own psychological growth and thereby his happiness. #Quote by Frederick Herzberg
Achievement quotes by William Of Malmesbury
#198. What task could be more agreeable than to tell of the benefits conferred on us by our ancestors, so that you may get to know the achievements of those from whom you have received both the basis of your beliefs and the inspiration to conduct your life properly. #Quote by William Of Malmesbury

#199. I know that unremitting attention to business is the price of success, but I don't know what success is. #Quote by Charles Dudley Warner
Achievement quotes by Eric Schlosser
#200. One crucial fact must be kept in mind: none of the roughly seventy thousand nuclear weapons built by the United States since 1945 has ever detonated inadvertently or without proper authorization. The technological and administrative controls on those weapons have worked, however imperfectly at times - and countless people, military and civilian, deserve credit for that remarkable achievement. Had a single weapon been stolen or detonated, America's command-and-control system would still have attained a success rate of 99.99857 percent. But nuclear weapons are the most dangerous technology ever invented. Anything less than 100 percent control of them, anything less than perfect safety and security, would be unacceptable. And if this book has any message to preach, it is that human beings are imperfect. #Quote by Eric Schlosser
