  1. Some great quotes here, really inspiring. I think my favourite, or the one that resonated most is, “Motivation is what gets you started; habit is what keeps you going.”

  2. I like the quote by Betty White, and considering she was a funny, bright and seemingly spry woman well into her 90s, points to her philosophy being true. I think she is right that we should not take ourselves too seriously; it’s definitely more freeing than being caught up in our own self-importance. Thanks for sharing these quotes!
