Excellence Quotations

We all want to be the best at what we do - it's only human nature. Fortunately, there's plenty of encouragement out there for those of us who look.

Excellence quoations can cheer you, inspire you or give you that extra little push you need to make the effort.

Excellence is not something you pull out of a hat. It's a long-haul, something that needs to be worked on... so excellence quotes are great to shorten the journey and keep you company on the way to greatness.

As usual, I start off with my favourites and add more excellence quotations as I find them. Happy, inspired reading!
