Quotations about Intention "All that is necessary to break the spell of inertia and frustration is this: act as if it were impossible to fail. That is the talisman, the formula, the command of right-about-face that turns us from failure toward success.” --Dorothea Brande”Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as this is all there is.” --Mary Ann Radmacher”It is difficult to say who do you the most harm: enemies with the worst intentions or friends with the best.” --Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton”It is not good enough for things to be planned - they still have to be done; for the intention to become a reality, energy has to be launched into operation.” --Walt Kelly"You've got to know what you want. This is central to acting on your intentions. When you know what you want, you realize that all there is left then is time management. You'll manage your time to achieve your goals because you clearly know what you're trying to achieve in your life." --Patch Adams”Our intention creates our reality.” --Wayne Dyer“Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination. What you believe to be possible will always come to pass - to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that.” --Anthon St. Maarten"Leadership is the wise use of power. Power is the capacity to translate intention into reality and sustain it." --Warren Bennis”All that counts in life is intention.” --Andrea Bocelli"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly, everything essential is invisible to the eye." --Antoine de Saint-Exupéry"Before you agree to do anything that might add even the smallest amount of stress to your life, ask yourself: What is my truest intention? Give yourself time to let a yes resound within you. When it's right, I guarantee that your entire body will feel it.” --Oprah Winfrey”History is a better guide than good intentions.” --Jeane Kirkpatrick"The more aware of your intentions and your experiences you become, the more you will be able to connect the two, and the more you will be able to create the experiences of your life consciously. This is the development of mastery. It is the creation of authentic power." --Gary Zukav”It is by translating your fine sense of aspiration into actual lofty deeds that you grow toward your ideal. Link your lofty thoughts to earnest, active effort, and good results will inevitably follow. The great things you intend to do some time must have a beginning if they are ever to be done, so begin something worthwhile today.” --Grenville Kleiser“Intention is one of the most powerful forces there is. What you mean when you do a thing will always determine the outcome. The law creates the world." --Brenna Yovanoff"Institutions mistake good intentions for objectives. They say ‘health care’; that's an intention, not an objective.“ --Peter Drucker”A good intention clothes itself with power.” --Ralph Waldo Emerson"Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work." --Peter Drucker”Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.” --William A. Foster”Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.” --Wayne Dyer Would you like to see more favorite quotes?
