Best Quotes by Denis Waitley (Top 10)

  1. The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.
  2. Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can't buy more hours. Scientists can't invent new minutes. And you can't save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you've wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.
  3. Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.
  4. Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
  5. Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
  6. There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
  7. Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.
  8. A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.
  9. Mistakes are painful when they happen, but years later a collection of mistakes is what is called experience.
  10. If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won't, you most assuredly won't. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.
