The purpose of creating a list of quotations is to get inspired and motivated from people who’ve encapsulated their wisdom in concise sentences.

I hope that reading my favorite quotes acts as an affirmation to the values that I’ve imbibed from them.

A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.

Ayn Rand

The unexamined life is not worth living.


What I cannot create, I do not understand.

Richard Feynman

Albert Einstein

Focusing is about saying no.

Steve Jobs

Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fantasies. To teach superstitions as truths is a most terrible thing. The child mind accepts and believes them, and only through great pain and perhaps tragedy can he be in after years relieved of them.

Hypatia of Alexandria

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

George Santayana

In the information age, it’s not just whose army wins, but whose story wins.

Joseph S. Nye Jr.
