Calvin Coolidge Motivational Quotations:

  • “No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.”

  •  “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

  • “I have never been hurt by what I have not said.”

  •  “All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work.”

  •  “I have found it advisable not to give too much heed to what people say when I am trying to accomplish something of consequence. Invariably they proclaim it can't be done. I deem that the very best time to make the effort.”

  •  “Heroism is not only in the man, but in the occasion.”

  •  “Any man who does not like dogs and want them about does not deserve to be in the White House.”

  •  “If you see ten troubles coming down the road, you can be sure that nine will run into the ditch before they reach you.”

  •  “Advertising is the life of trade.”

  •  “Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.”

  •  “We do not need more intellectual power, we need more spiritual power. We do not need more of the things that are seen, we need more of the things that are unseen.”

  • “Patriotism is easy to understand in America. It means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.”
