Our Inspiration

At Clifton's some of our inspiration comes from the wise words of others...

Following are some of the inspiring quotes we often refer to.


"The bad news is time flies; the good news is you're the pilot"

Albert Einstein

"If you think you can do a thing or you think you can't do a thing, either way you're right"

Henry Ford

"It is arrogant in the extreme to dictate to the market place what they will buy and how much they will pay"

Jay Abraham

"The way to get started is to quit talking and start doing"

"The world is more malleable than you think, and it's waiting for you to hammer it into shape"


"If you don't act whilst it is fresh in your mind, it will probably join the list of things you were always going to do but never quite got around to.  Chances are you'll also miss some opportunities"

Paul Clitheroe

"Don't be too timid or squeamish about your actions.  All life is an experiment"

"The big shots are only the little shots who kept shooting"

"Time is free, but it is priceless.  You can't own it, but you can use it.  You can't keep it, but you can spend it.  Once you have lost it, you can never get it back"

Harvey Mackay

"Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion"

Jack Welch

Nick Vujicic

Sun Tzu

"Remember, a real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken new action.  If there's no action, you haven't truly decided"

Anthony Robbins

"The mind is like a parachute; they only function when open"

Thomas Dewar

"You can have everything in life you want if you'll just help enough other people to get what they want"

Zig Ziglar

"The power of an idea is in its implementation"

Michael Sheargold

Chris DeWolfe

If you think you're too small to have an impact, try going to sleep with a mosquito in the room"

Dame Anita Roddick

"If 'A' is success in life, then A = X + Y + Z.  Work is 'X'; 'Y' is play; and 'Z' is keeping your mouth shut"

Albert Einstein

"It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste"

Henry Ford

"Satisfaction does not come with achievement, but with effort.  Full effort is full victory"

Mahatma Gandhi
