How I get through my days

I have sticky notes that I put up around my desk for inspiration. And since I couldn’t think of anything this week well…

Once you realize that will power is just a matter of learning how to control your attention and thoughts, you can really begin to increase it. –Mischel

Eye single to the Glory of God

Strength isn’t something you have… it’s something God helps you find. –Emma Hale Smith

You know what they call a unicorn without a horn? A friggin horse. –Glee

If someone wants to be a part of your life they’ll make an effort to be it. So don’t bother reserving a space in your heart for someone who doesn’t make an effort to stay.

You always zig when I think you are about to zag and that’s what I love about you. –Glee

Perfection equals complete and whole. Am I complete and whole?

Who honors those by the very life we live. You have all the weapons you need… Now FIGHT! -Sucker Punch

Some people just need a high five… in the face… with a chair.

I’m not bossy. I just know what you should be doing.

When people cut you down or talk behind your back, remember they took time out of their pathetic lives to think about you.

I know you are out there. I can feel you now. I know that you’re afraid… You’re afraid of us. I don’t know the future. I didn’t come here to tell you how this ends. I came here to tell you how it begins. –Dane Cook (Totally shocking that he wrote this. Maybe he didn’t but he did post it on his FB)

How many haters does it take to change a light bulb? None. They fear change, even if it can make the world a brighter place.

Peace: it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart.

What is the worst that can happen if you don’t sin?

It’s never too late to be who you might have been.

“I thought America was all about unique people coming together?” “Old brochure dude.” –Glee

So remember folks, keep a mini drag queen in your hearts at all times. – Our own Nathan Cunliffe

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned. –Buddha

Examine the contents, not the bottle.

You may think and believe something with all the conviction of your heart yet you will never know what is best for a single individual. –Me

Remember that guy that gave up? Neither does anybody else.

We become who we want to be by being the person we want to become every day.

The reason you should let go and can’t let go are the same.

Trust should be a drop of water/Administered once a day/So that at the first sign of pollution/We can stop the flow/And let the rest dry away. -Tricia Levenseller

That is a terrible, self destructive plan and we are behind you 100%.

Organize people are just too lazy to look for things.

And technically it’s not a sticky note on my desk but it’s an 8X11 that I keep posted next to my desk. It’s helped me so much and is like a daily reminder for me so…

Winners never quit and quitters never win. –Jim Dodds


  1. That's awesome, Dupree! I love quotes as well and these are just fantastic! I think I'll have to put some of them on my wall as well. Thanks for posting!

  2. Some of these are funny.

    Just one response to one of your quotes: What's the worst that can happen if you DO sin? just sayin.
