Do You Wanna Be Great?
As i celebrate my first year in blogging, i decided to research some quotes about greatness and post them here. May these quotes inspire you not just today but through out this year.
“I long to accomplish a great and noble task,
but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks
they were great and noble.”
"Be not afraid of greatness:
some are born great, some achieve greatness,
and some have greatness thrust upon them. "
"By constant self-discipline
you can develop greatness of character."
"Every day, people settle for less than they deserve.
They are only partially living or at best living a partial life.
Every human being has the potential for greatness."
"Great heroes need great sorrows and burdens,
or half their greatness goes unnoticed."
Peter S. Beagle
"Greatness is not measured by what a man or woman accomplishes,
but by the opposition he or she has overcome to reach his goals."
"I never knew a man come to greatness
or eminence who lay abed late in the morning."
"If we cannot see the possibility of greatness,
how can we dream it?"
"Just do what must be done.
This may not be happiness,
but it is greatness."
George Bernard Shaw
"Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power
and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom;
you are exalted as head over all."
I Chronicles 29:11
compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord,
for whose sake I have lost all things.
I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ."
"Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom."
"You give me your shield of victory,
and your right hand sustains me;
you stoop down to make me great."
