Concentration quotes
Concentration
The jack-of-all-trades seldom is good at any. Concentrate all of your efforts on one definite chief aim.

- Hill, Napoleon
To say I accept in an age like our own is to say that you accept concentration-camps, rubber truncheons, Hitler, Stalin, bombs, aeroplanes, tinned food, machine guns, putsches, purges, slogans, Bedaux belts, gas-masks, submarines, spies, provocateurs, press-censorship, secret prisons, aspirins, Hollywood films and political murder.

- Orwell, George
One mustn't allow acting to be like stockbroker -- you must not take it just as a means of earning a living, to go down every day to do a job of work. The big thing is to combine punctuality, efficiency, good nature, obedience, intelligence, and concentration with an unawareness of what is going to happen next, thus keeping yourself available for excitement.

- Gielgud, John
What do I mean by concentration? I mean focusing totally on the business at hand and commanding your body to do exactly what you want it to do.

- Palmer, Arnold
A man should conceive of a legitimate purpose in his heart, and set out to accomplish it. He should make this purpose the centralizing point of his thoughts. It may take the form of a spiritual ideal, or it may be a worldly object, according to his nature at the time being; but whichever it is, he should steadily focus his thought forces upon the object which he has set before him. He should make this purpose his supreme duty, and should devote himself to its attainment, not allowing his thoughts to wander away into ephemeral fancies, longings, and imaginings. This is the royal road to self-control and true concentration of thought. Even if he fails again and again to accomplish his purpose (as he necessarily must until weakness is overcome), the strength of character gained will be the measure of his true success, and this will form a new starting point for future power and triumph.

- Allen, James
Enter every activity without giving mental recognition to the possibility of defeat. Concentrate on your strengths, instead of your weaknesses... on your powers, instead of your problems.

- Meyer, Paul J.
Singleness of purpose is one of the chief essentials for success in life, no matter what may be one's aim.

- Rockefeller, John D.
It is not the straining for great things that is most effective; it is the doing the little things, the common duties, a little better and better.

- Phelps, Elizabeth Stuart
The question is not whether the system works, but whether we like the way it works. Just because something works doesn't mean it is desirable. Concentration camps work, if your purpose is to enslave people. Stealing works, if all you care about is money. Lying works, if you don't give a damn about your personal integrity. Literally anything, no matter how monstrously immoral will work, depending on your desires and how you define the term work,

- Leon, Sy
The secret of concentration is the secret of self-discovery. You reach inside yourself to discover your personal resources, and what it takes to match them to the challenge.

- Arnold Palmer
Ninety percent of my game is mental. It's my concentration that has gotten me this far.

- Evert, Chris
Before water generates steam, it must register 212 of heat; 200 will not do it. The water must boil to generate enough steam to move an engine. Lukewarm water will not run anything. Lukewarmness will not generate life's work.

Concentration is my motto -- first honesty, then industry, then concentration.

- Carnegie, Andrew
By concentrating our attention on the effect rather than the causes, we can avoid the laborious, nearly impossible task of trying to detect and deflect the many psychological influences on liking.

- Cialdini, Robert
There's a whiff of the lynch mob or the lemming migration about any overlarge concentration of like-thinking individuals, no matter how virtuous their cause.

- P. J. O'Rourke
The history of liberty is the history of the limitations of governmental power, not the increase of it. When we resist the concentration of power we are resisting the powers of death. Concentration of power precedes the destruction of human liberties.

- Wilson, Woodrow T.
A crisis does not always appear to a policymaker as a series of dramatic events. Usually it imposes itself as an exhausting agenda of petty chores demanding both concentration and endurance.

- Henry Kissinger
Concentrate; put all your eggs in one basket, and watch that basket...

- Carnegie, Andrew
It may be objected by some that I have concentrated too much on the dry bones, and too little on the flesh which clothes them, but I would ask such critics to concede at least that the bones have an austere beauty of their own.

- Pippard, A.B.
As long as I can concentrate and remain somewhat calm, I can normally do very well.

- Oerter, Al
