10 Inspirational Quotations

June 4th, 2015
A typical CFA Candidates desktop

While lying in bed unable to sleep, but not wanting to study anymore, I decided to get out of bed and update my blog for the first time in a long while with some inspirational quotations from my collection. Often during the long lonely nights the words of the long dead and the still kicking give me comfort. Hopefully with yet another CFA® Exam drawing near, someone else will find inspiration in these words.

Norman Vincent Peale:

It’s always too early to quit.

Steve Martin:

Be so good, they can’t ignore you.

Henry Ford:

You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.

Ezra Solomon:

The only function of economic forecasting is to make astrology look respectful.

John D. Rockefeller:

The way to make money is to buy when blood is running in the street.

Honore de Balzac:

Finance, like time, devours its own children.

Randy Newman:

They say that’s money,
Can’t buy love in this world,
But it’ll get you a half-pound of cocaine,
And a sixteen-year old girl,
And a great big long limousine,
On a hot September night,
Now that may not be love,
But it’s all right.

Terry Pratchett:

There are better things in life than alcohol, but alcohol makes up for not having them.

William Butler Yeats:

If suffering brings wisdom, I would wish to be less wise.

Oscar Wilde:

It is better to have a permanent income than to be fascinating.

I posted these with an eye towards CFA Candidates. I myself am still a CFA Candidate after all these years, I even managed to pass all three exams, but I can not say it helped my career. If you have any inspirational quotations or career advice you can leave it below.
