Life coach: words of wisdom

17th January 2003 at 00:00
Sometimes the most effective way to stimulate and motivate others - or ourselves - is with a great quote. Here are some to keep handy:

* "We must live out our own vision of life. And there will be error. If you avoid error, you do not live." - Carl Jung, psychologist.

* "Life is a rush into the unknown. You can duck down and hope nothing hits you, or stand as tall as you can, show it your teeth, and say, 'Dish it up, baby, and don't be stingy with the jalape$os'." - American insurance company advertisement.

* "There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and, after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second." Logan Pearsall Smith, essayist.

* "Perhaps the most valuable of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do when it ought to be done whether you like it or not." Thomas Huxley, biologist.
