Best Quotes about Procrastination
We all sorely complain of the shortness of time, and yet have much more than we know what to do with. Our lives are either spent in doing nothing at all, or in doing nothing to the purpose, or in doing nothing that we ought to do. We are always complaining that our days are few, and acting as though there would be no end of them.
All delay is helpful, but it does produce wisdom.
There is nothing so fatal to character as half finished tasks.
George, David Lloyd

There are those of us who are always about to live. We are waiting until things change, until there is more time, until we are less tired, until we get a promotion, until we settle down -- until, until, until. It always seems as if there is some major event that must occur in our lives before we begin living.
My evil genius Procrastination has whispered me to tarry 'til a more convenient season.
Lincoln, Mary Todd
If you put off everything till you're sure of it, you'll never get anything done.

The truth is that we live out our lives putting off all that can be put off; perhaps we all know deep down that we are immortal and that sooner or later all men will do and know all things.
Borges, Jorge Luis
Tear thyself from delay.
Neither a wise nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him.
Eisenhower, Dwight D.
If you wait until the wind and the weather are just right, you will never plant anything and never harvest anything.
Elijah went before the people and said, How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him. But the people said nothing. [1 Kings 18:21]
He who awaits much can expect little.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
Don't wait for someone to take you under their wing. Find a good wing and climb up underneath it.

A wise person does at once, what a fool does at last. Both do the same thing; only at different times.
It's the job that's never started takes longest to finish.
Tolkien, J. R.
During a very busy life I have often been asked, How did you manage to do it all? The answer is very simple. It is because I did everything promptly.

Procrastination is my sin. It brings me naught but sorrow. I know that I should stop it. In fact, I will--tomorrow!
Putting off an easy thing makes it hard, and putting off a hard one makes it impossible.
Lonmer, George H.
... if we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin.
We hate delays by others, but sometimes it makes us wise.

Deming, W. Edwards
Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the 'someday I'll' philosophy.
