Received an interesting book as a gift,
offering some motivational thoughts
as we end one year and enter a new year
with opportunities and challenges.

BOOK:   ‘Zingers,” by P. M.. Croft, Tyndal
House Publishers, Carol Stream IL 1990.

AMBITION
“The father of success is work, the
mother of achievement is ambition.”

WORK
“Housework is something you do that
nobody notices until you don’t do it.”

“If a [person] does only what is required
…, he is a slave.  If he does more than
is required, he is a free man.”

“It takes as much energy to wish as it
does to plan.”

“People may not remember how fast
you do your work, but they will 
remember how well you did it.”

“You may be on the right track.  But
sit there and you will be run over.”

“The world does not pay for what a
person knows, but it pays for what
a person does with what he knows.”

“There may be luck in getting a good
job, but there is no luck in keeping it.”

“Good intentions die unless they are
executed.”

“Work isn’t work if you enjoy it.”

“To gain success, do not merely stare
up the steps, step up the stairs.”

“The difference between a career and
a job is about twenty more hours per
week.”

“If you make your job important,
it is likely to return the favor.”

“The price of mastery in any field is
thorough preparation.”
