Excellence

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

Best Quotes about Excellence

1.
Excellence is best described as doing the right things right -- selecting the most important things to be done and then accomplishing them 100% correctly.

2.
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

3.
I never had a policy; I have just tried to do my very best each and every day.
Lincoln, Abraham

4.
Whatever you do, don't do it halfway.
Beamon, Bob

5.
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.

6.
There is only one thing for us to do, and that is to do our level best right where we are every day of our lives; To use our best judgment, and then to trust the rest to that Power which holds the forces of the universe in his hands.
Marden, Orison Swett

7.
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.

8.
There is no finish line.
Nike Corporation

9.
Determine to become one of the best. Sufficient money will almost automatically follow if you get to be one of the best in your chosen field, whatever it is.
Mitchell, Don G.

10.
With regard to excellence, it is not enough to know, but we must try to have and use it.
Aristotle

11.
If I play my best, I can win anywhere in the world against anybody.
Floyd, Ray

12.
Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.
Gardner, John W.

13.
Do not look for approval except for the consciousness of doing your best.
Carnegie, Andrew

14.
If you do things well, do them better. Be daring, be first, be different, be just.
Roddick, Anita

15.
The success combination in business is: Do what you do better... and: Do more of what you do...
Schwartz, David J.

16.
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

17.
People who produce good results feel good about themselves.
Blanchard, Ken

18.
It is not from ourselves that we learn to be better than we are.
Berry, Wendell

19.
People forget how fast you did a job, but they remember how well you did it.
Newton, Howard W.

20.
Excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better.
Riley, Pat

21.
It isn't what you do, but how you do it.
Wooden, John

22.
True greatness consists in being great in little things.
Simmons, Charles

23.
You must be resolutely determined that whatever you do shall always be the best of which you are capable.
Popplestone, Charles E.

24.
I have offended God and mankind because my work didn't reach the quality it should have.
Da Vinci, Leonardo

25.
If we want to make something really superb on this planet, there is nothing whatever that can stop us.
Mead, Shepherd

26.
One shining quality lends a luster to another, or hides some glaring defect.
Hazlitt, William

27.
You're probably not a member of a major league baseball team, your errors, unless they are truly spectacular, don't show up in the morning paper.
Goodsell, Jane

28.
You have to create a track record of breaking your own mold, or at least other people's idea of that mold.
Hurt, William

29.
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.

30.
The principle is competing against yourself. It's about self improvement, about being better than you were the day before.
Young, Steve

31.
All you owe the public is a good performance.
Bogart, Humphrey

32.
Excellent firms don't believe in excellence -- only in constant improvement and constant change.
Peters, Thomas J.

33.
Superiority -- doing things a little better than anybody else can do them.
Marden, Orison Swett

34.
Today, and every day, deliver more than you are getting paid to do. The victory of success will be half won when you learn the secret of putting out more than is expected in all that you do. Make yourself so valuable in your work that eventually you will become indispensable. Exercise your privilege to go the extra mile, and enjoy all the rewards you receive. You deserve them!
Mandino, Og

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.
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

37.
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

38.
We do not do well except when we know where the best is and when we are assured that we have touched it and hold its power within us.
Joubert, Joseph

39.
Great men are but common men more fully developed and ripened.
Marden, Orison Swett

40.
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

41.
From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race.
Bruyere, Jean De La

42.
The fact is, the difference between peak performers and everybody else are much smaller than everybody else thinks.
Garfield, Charles A.

43.
Doing common things uncommonly well.
Marden, Orison Swett

44.
Let each day be your masterpiece.

45.
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

46.
If you aren't playing well, the game isn't as much fun. When that happens I tell myself just to go out and play as I did when I was a kid.
Watson, Thomas J.

47.
There seems to be one quality of mind which seems to be of special and extreme advantage in leading him to make discoveries. It was the power of never letting exceptions go unnoticed.
Darwin, Francis

48.
I start where the last man left off.
Edison, Thomas A.

49.
There is no such thing as natural touch. Touch is something you create by hitting millions of golf balls.
Trevino, Lee

50.
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
