Excellence quotes
Excellence
The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both.

- Michener, James A.
The supreme excellence is not to win a hundred victories in a hundred battles. The supreme excellence is to subdue the armies of your enemies without even having to fight them.

- Lao-Tzu
I never had a policy; I have just tried to do my very best each and every day.

- Lincoln, Abraham
Just make up your mind at the very outset that your work is going to stand for quality... that you are going to stamp a superior quality upon everything that goes out of your hands, that whatever you do shall bear the hall-mark of excellence.

- Marden, Orison Swett
To aim at excellence, our reputation, and friends, and all must be ventured; to aim at the average we run no risk and provide little service.

- Goldsmith, Oliver
True greatness consists in being great in little things.

- Simmons, Charles
Nevertheless, in order to imbue civilization with sound principles and enliven it with the spirit of the gospel, it is not enough to be illumined with the gift of faith and enkindled with the desire of forwarding a good cause. For this end it is necessary to take an active part in the various organizations and influence them from within. And since our present age is one of outstanding scientific and technical progress and excellence, one will not be able to enter these organizations and work effectively from within unless he is scientifically competent, technically capable and skilled in the practice of his own profession.

- Pope John XXIII
Ultimate excellence lies not in winning every battle, but in defeating the enemy without ever fighting.

- Sun Tzu
Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can reach. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries and predecessors; try to be better than yourself.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.

- Aristotle
All of the top achievers I know are life-long learners... Looking for new skills, insights, and ideas. If they're not learning, they're not growing... not moving toward excellence.

- Waitley, Denis
Sports serve society by providing vivid examples of excellence.

- George F. Will
Excellence is best described as doing the right things right -- selecting the most important things to be done and then accomplishing them 100% correctly.

The renown which riches or beauty confer is fleeting and frail; mental excellence is a splendid and lasting possession.

- Sallust
Our civilization, bequeathed to us by fierce adventurers, eaters of meat and hunters, is so full of hurry and combat, so busy about many things which perhaps are of no importance, that it cannot but see something feeble in a civilization which smiles as it refuses to make the battlefield the test of excellence.

- Joyce, James
Winners have the ability to step back from the canvas of their lives like an artist gaining perspective. They make their lives a work of art -- an individual masterpiece.

- Waitley, Denis
INTIMACY, n. A relation into which fools are providentially drawn for their mutual destruction. Two Seidlitz powders, one in blue And one in white, together drew And having each a pleasant sense Of t'other powder's excellence, Forsook their jackets for the snug Enjoyment of a common mug. So close their intimacy grew One paper would have held the two. To confidences straight they fell, Less anxious each to hear than tell; Then each remorsefully confessed To all the virtues he possessed, Acknowledging he had them in So high degree it was a sin. The more they said, the more they felt Their spirits with emotion melt, Till tears of sentiment expressed Their feelings. Then they effervesced! So Nature executes her feats Of wrath on friends and sympathetes The good old rule who don't apply, That you are you and I am I.

- Ambrose Bierce
There are no speed limits on the road to excellence.

- David W. Johnson
There is an infinite difference between a little wrong and just right, between fairly good and the best, between mediocrity and superiority...

- Marden, Orison Swett
Our goal, simply stated, is to be the best.

- Robinson, James H.
