Monday Motivation, Pre-Internet Style
One of the the best illustrations of the power of words is the fact that a single quote can actually cause you to take action: to get up out of your chair, to run farther, to do an extra rep, to burn the midnight oil, all in service of a goal. And clearly there is an appetite for motivational quotes: as of the writing of this post, there are 32,088,830 posts on Instagram with the hashtag #MondayMotivation.
For a bit of a different angle on #MondayMotivation for this Monday launch day for bonmots.com, below is a selection of 10 quotes from our database that I find inspiring. All these quotes pre-date the existence of the internet, and in some cases, pre-date the existence of the automobile, electricity or even the Iron Age.
