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

- Andrew Carnegie
If you have to remind yourself to concentrate during competition, you've got no chance to concentrate.

- Nichols, Bobby
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
As long as I can concentrate and remain somewhat calm, I can normally do very well.

- Oerter, Al
The magic of the pen lies in the concentration of your thoughts upon one object.

- Lewes, George Henry
Concentration comes out of a combination of confidence and hunger.

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

- Rockefeller, John D.
I never could have done what I have done without the habits of punctuality, order, and diligence, without the determination to concentrate myself on one subject at a time...

- Dickens, Charles
It's shocking how little there is to do with tennis when you're just thinking about nothing except winning every point.

- Agassi, Andre
The ability to concentrate and to use time well is everything.

- Iacocca, Lee
When every physical and mental resources is focused, one's power to solve a problem multiplies tremendously.

- Peale, Norman Vincent
Multitudes of people, drifting aimlessly to and fro without a set purpose, deny themselves such fulfillment of their capacities, and the satisfying happiness which attends it. They are not wicked, they are only shallow. They are not mean or vicious; they simply are empty -- shake them and they would rattle like gourds. They lack range, depth, and conviction. Without purpose their lives ultimately wander into the morass of dissatisfaction. As we harness our abilities to a steady purpose and undertake the long pull toward its accomplishment, rich compensations reward us. A sense of purpose simplifies life and therefore concentrates our abilities; and concentration adds power.

- Hildebrand, Kenneth
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 great difference between those who succeed and those who fail does not consist in the amount of work done by each but in the amount of intelligent work. Many of those who fail most ignominiously do enough to achieve grand success but they labor haphazardly at whatever they are assigned, building up with one hand to tear down with the other. They do not grasp circumstances and change them into opportunities. They have no faculty for turning honest defeats into telling victories. With ability enough and ample time, the major ingredients of success, they are forever throwing back and forth an empty shuttle and the real web of their life is never woven.

- Mandino, Og
My ability to concentrate and work toward that goal has been my greatest asset.

- Nicklaus, Jack
Those who attain to any excellence commonly spend life in some single pursuit, for excellence is not often gained upon easier terms.

- Johnson, Samuel
If our thoughts and hopes are elsewhere, it is impossible to set our faces steadily toward the work required of us.

Concentration, Confidence, Competitive urge, Capacity for enjoyment.

- Palmer, Arnold
