There are a couple of books that I have read that I know for sure I will always promote as a must read for young adults, and this book, The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason is one of them.
Take a look and sit with some of the quotes that I pulled from his work.
“Proper preparation is the key to success. Our acts can be no wiser than our thoughts. Our thinking can be no wiser than our understanding.”
“Opportunity wastes no time with those who are unprepared.”
“Will power is the unflinching purpose to carry a task you set for yourself to fulfillment.”
“No man can climb who cannot plant his feet firmly upon the first step.”
“The more of wisdom we know, the more we may earn.”
“All good fortune and opportunity is lost when you culture a habit of needless delaying where action is required – action prompt and decisive.”
“The soul of a free man looks at life as a series of problems to be solved and solves them, while the soul of a slave whines, ‘what can I do who am but a slave?'”
“Where determination is, the way can be found.”
“Decide what thou desirest to accomplish and then work will aid thee to achieve it!”
I hope some of these quotes can give hope to whatever situation you are facing and grit to be able to confront what needs confronting.
What are some of your favorite quotes from one of your favorite books?
