Excellence

It is only in your mind that you have to excel, at anything or everything. Of course, it would be very nice to excel at most things. Indeed, we recommend that you try and do your best. But realistically, you are entitled to do the bare minimum to get by. All your accomplishments are just a bonus, something to enjoy, not requirements. You don't have to do anything to prove that you are worthy of existing.
- Albert Ellis, Michael Abrams, Lidia Dengelegi

Best Quotes about Excellence

1.
People who produce good results feel good about themselves.
Blanchard, Ken

2.
No matter how small and unimportant what we are doing may seem, if we do it well, it may soon become the step that will lead us to better things.
Pollock, Channing

3.
Put the uncommon effort into the common task... make it large by doing it in a great way.
Marden, Orison Swett

4.
We distinguish the excellent man from the common man by saying that the former is the one who makes great demands on himself, and the latter who makes no demands on himself.
Gasset, Jose Ortega Y

5.
Badness you can get easily, in quantity; the road is smooth, and it lies close by, But in front of excellence the immortal gods have put sweat, and long and steer is the way to it.
Hesiod

6.
Good enough never is.
Field, Debbi

7.
It's not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what's required.
Sir Winston Churchill

8.
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

9.
I never had a policy; I have just tried to do my very best each and every day.
Lincoln, Abraham

10.
Do a little bit more than average and from that point on our progress multiplies itself out of all proportion to the effort put in.
Meyer, Paul J.

11.
The principle is competing against yourself. It's about self improvement, about being better than you were the day before.
Young, Steve

12.
Make it a life-rule to give your best to whatever passes through your hands. Stamp it with your manhood. Let superiority be your trademark...
Marden, Orison Swett

13.
The idea for which this nation stands will not survive if the highest goal free man can set themselves is an amiable mediocrity. Excellence implies striving for the highest standards in every phase of life.
Gardner, John W.

14.
I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.
Wilde, Oscar

15.
It is not from ourselves that we learn to be better than we are.
Berry, Wendell

The ancient Greek definition of happiness was the full use of your powers along lines of excellence.
John F. Kennedy

17.
Let each day be your masterpiece.

18.
I use nothing but the best ingredients. My cookies are always baked fresh. I price cookies so that you cannot make them at home for any less. And I still give cookies away.
Fields, Debbie

19.
I am a writer because writing is the thing I do best.
O'Connor, Flannery

20.
The kind of people I look for to fill top management spots are the eager beavers, the mavericks. These are the guys who try to do more than they're expected to do -- they always reach.
Iacocca, Lee

21.
I can do small things in a great way.
Clarke, James Freeman

22.
The road to excellence is always under construction

23.
It is just the little difference between the good and the best that makes the difference between the artist and the artisan. It is just the little touches after the average man would quit that makes the master's fame.
Marden, Orison Swett

24.
It isn't by size that you win or fail -- be the best of whatever you are.
Malloch, Douglas

25.
To enjoy the things we ought and to hate the things we ought has the greatest bearing on excellence of character.
Aristotle

26.
The noblest search is the search for excellence.
Johnson, Lyndon B.

27.
The excellency of every art is its intensity, capable of making all disagreeable evaporate.
Keats, John

28.
Always strive to excel, but only on weekends.
Rorty, Richard

29.
If you do things well, do them better. Be daring, be first, be different, be just.
Roddick, Anita

Set exorbitant standards, and give your people hell when they don't live up to them. There is nothing so demoralizing as a boss who tolerates second rate work.
Ogilvy, David

31.
We must do the best we can with what we have.
Sill, Edward Rowland

32.
There is a canyon of difference between doing your best to glorify God and doing whatever it takes to glorify yourself. The quest for excellence is a mark of maturity. The quest for power is childish.
Lucado, Max L.

33.
I start where the last man left off.
Edison, Thomas A.

34.
The renown which riches or beauty confer is fleeting and frail; mental excellence is a splendid and lasting possession.
Sallust

35.
If you'll not settle for anything less than your best, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in your lives.
Lombardi, Vince

36.
Do more than you're supposed to do and you can have or be or do anything you want.
Sands, Bill

37.
The fact is, the difference between peak performers and everybody else are much smaller than everybody else thinks.
Garfield, Charles A.

38.
It is the mark of an instructed mind to rest satisfied with the degree of precision which the nature of the subject admits and not to seek exactness when only an approximation of the truth is possible.
Aristotle

39.
Being forced to work, and forced to do your best, will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred virtues which the idle will never know.
Kingsley, Charles

40.
Our goal, simply stated, is to be the best.
Robinson, James H.

41.
Whoever I am, or whatever I am doing, some kind of excellence is within my reach.
Gardner, John W.

42.
One of the great undiscovered joys of life comes from doing everything one attempts to the best of one's ability. There is a special sense of satisfaction, a pride in surveying such a work, a work which is rounded, full, exact, complete in its parts, which the superficial person who leaves his or her work in a slovenly, slipshod, half-finished condition, can never know. It is this conscientious completeness which turns any work into art. The smallest task, well done, becomes a miracle of achievement.
Mandino, Og

43.
If you want to achieve excellence, you can get there today. As of this second, quit doing less-than-excellent work.
Watson, Thomas J.

There is none who cannot teach somebody something, and there is none so excellent but he is excelled.
Gracian, Baltasar

47.
Four short words sum up what has lifted most successful individuals above the crowd: a little bit more. They did all that was expected of them and a little bit more.
Vickery, A. Lou

48.
I always remember an epitaph which is in the cemetery at Tombstone, Arizona. It says: Here lies Jack Williams. He done his damnedest. I think that is the greatest epitaph a man can have.
Truman, Harry S

49.
The most splendid achievement of all is the constant striving to surpass yourself and to be worthy of your own approval.
Waitley, Denis

50.
People come out to see you perform and you've got to give them the best you have within you. The lives of most men are patchwork quilts. Or at best one matching outfit with a closet and laundry bag full of incongruous accumulations. A lifetime of training for just ten seconds.
Owens, Jesse
