Jacob A. Riis Motivational Quotations:

  • “I'd look at one of my stonecutters hammering away at the rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet, at the hundred and first blow it would split in two, and I knew it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before.”

  •  “Some defeats are only installments to victory.” 

    Jacob A. Riis

  • “The slum is the measure of civilization.”

  •  “When nothing seems to help, I go look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it.”

    Jacob A. Riis


  • “Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.”

  • “The more I live, the more I think that humor is the saving sense.”
