Andrew Carnegie Motivational Quotations:

  • “You cannot push any one up a ladder unless he be willing to climb a little himself.”

  •  “No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it.”

  • “The way to become rich is to put all your eggs in one basket and then watch that basket.”

  •  “There is little success where there is little laughter.”

  •  “The 'morality of compromise' sounds contradictory. Compromise is usually a sign of weakness, or an admission of defeat. Strong men don't compromise, it is said, and principles should never be compromised.”

  •  “As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.”

    Andrew Carnegie

  •  “Do your duty and a little more and the future will take care of itself.”

  •  “People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.”

  •  “The first man gets the oyster, the second man gets the shell.”

  •  “Concentration is my motto - first honesty, then industry, then concentration.”

  •  “The men who have succeeded are men who have chosen one line and stuck to it.”

  •  “Surplus wealth is a sacred trust which its possessor is bound to administer in his lifetime for the good of the community.” 

  • “The average person puts only 25% of his energy and ability into his work. The world takes off its hat to those who put in more than 50% of their capacity, and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100%.”

  •  “Do not look for approval except for the consciousness of doing your best.”

  •  “Think of yourself as on the threshold of unparalleled success. A whole, clear, glorious life lies before you. Achieve! Achieve!”

  •  “Concentrate your energies, your thoughts and your capital. The wise man puts all his eggs in one basket and watches the basket.”

  •  “There is no class so pitiably wretched as that which possesses money and nothing else.”

    Andrew Carnegie

  •  “I shall argue that strong men, conversely, know when to compromise and that all principles can be compromised to serve a greater principle.”

  •  “Every act you have ever performed since the day you were born was performed because you wanted something.”

  •  “He that cannot reason is a fool. He that will not is a bigot. He that dare not is a slave.”

  •  “And while the law of competition may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department.”

  •  “I resolved to stop accumulating and begin the infinitely more serious and difficult task of wise distribution.”

  •  “Aim for the highest.”

  •  “The man who acquires the ability to take full possession of his own mind may take possession of anything else to which he is justly entitled.”

  •  “No person will make a great business who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit.”

  •  “All honor's wounds are self-inflicted.”

  •  “Whatever I engage in, I must push inordinately.”

  •  “I would as soon leave my son a curse as the almighty dollar.”

  •  “You must capture and keep the heart of the original and supremely able man before his brain can do its best.”

  •  “Immense power is acquired by assuring yourself in your secret reveries that you were born to control affairs.”
