Favorite Doing Your Best Quotes

1. "Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it's business or baseball, or the theater, or any field. If you don't love what you're doing and you can't give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. You'll be an old man before you know it."

5. "Make doing your best a habit, and you will never know not doing your best. If you build roads build them Roman-make them last two thousand years. Dig ditches as if you were taking them to the state fair to win another blue ribbon for best ditches. It's never a question of what you do but how well you do it. Do the best work you can, even if your boss never sees it- what matters it that you see it. Because ultimately you're your own boss. Find work you love to do. Because, the greatest devil of them all is to work just for money. I know more miserable souls who, chasing the almighty dollar through some strange loophole logic, believe that the more money you have the happier you'll be...generally the richer they become the more wretched they become."
Author: Carew Papritz

So-if you want it in vampire language-it affords me great pleasure, my liege, to say to you now: Hell, no."
Author: Cassandra Clare
7. "The duty of the moment is what you should be doing at any given time, in whatever place God has put you.You may not have Christ in a homeless person at your door, but you may have a little child.If you have a child, your duty of the moment may be to change a dirty diaper.So you do it.But you don't just change that diaper, you change it to the best of your ability, with great love for both God and that child....There are all kinds of good Catholic things you can do, but whatever they are, you have to realize that there is always the duty of the moment to be done.And it must be done, because the duty of the moment is the duty of God."
Author: Catherine De Hueck Doherty

Maybe you should see me at my best."My words hang between us, heavy and charged, and I don't know what the fuck I am doing."When are you at your best?" she asks hesitantly. And I can see from the determined look on her face that she is trying hard not to feel intimidated. I'm impressed. She's like a kitten standing up to a lion. "In bed."
Author: Courtney Cole
11. "I wish my genius ran to making automatons," he said. "I would invent one that would follow you around with a tray. It would wait patiently for you to look up from whatever you were doing, and as soon as you did, it would say, ‘Lady Cambury, you must have something to eat.'" She swallowed her bite of apple. "That would be extremely annoying." "I do not consider that a detriment." "I consider it a waste of a good automaton. I would modify your invention," she said, reaching for some cheese. "I'd dress my version up in my best silk and send it out to pay morning calls. Oh, how I hate making morning calls. It wouldn't need much of a vocabulary. ‘Yes,' my automaton would say, ‘this weather is dreadful, isn't it?' In fact, I think that's how I would do it. Whatever the other person says, it would answer, ‘Yes, it most certainly is, isn't it?' My automaton would have perfect manners."
Author: Courtney Milan
12. "Grades are a problem. On the most general level, they're an explicit acknowledgment that what you're doing is insufficiently interesting or rewarding for you to do it on your own. Nobody ever gave you a grade for learning how to play, how to ride a bicycle, or how to kiss. One of the best ways to destroy love for any of these activities would be through the use of grades, and the coercion and judgment they represent. Grades are a cudgel to bludgeon the unwilling into doing what they don't want to do, an important instrument in inculcating children into a lifelong subservience to whatever authority happens to be thrust over them."
Author: Derrick Jensen
13. "You are supposed to be ON. By ON I mean doing your very best work always. Operating at a level where you are dangerously good and exceptionally creative."

14. "I thought, as I wiped my eyes on the corner of my apron:Penelope did this too.And more than once: you can't keep weaving all dayAnd undoing it all through the night;Your arms get tired, and the back of your neck gets tight;And along towards morning, when you think it will never be light,And your husband has been gone, and you don't know where, for years.Suddenly you burst into tears;There is simply nothing else to do.And I thought, as I wiped my eyes on the corner of my apron:This is an ancient gesture, authentic, antique,In the very best tradition, classic, Greek;Ulysses did this too.But only as a gesture,—a gesture which impliedTo the assembled throng that he was much too moved to speak.He learned it from Penelope...Penelope, who really cried."
Author: Edna St. Vincent Millay
15. "If you have a strong sense of who you are and what you're doing, then it's actually easier to work with other people, because you don't have to worry about them or yourself. You're just worrying about getting the best product, and all that other stuff is out of the way."
Author: Eliza Coupe

Author: H. Jackson Brown Jr.
17. "Love is about finding the right person, and doing your best to keep the relationship a secret from your spouse."
Author: Jarod Kintz
18. "Colour outside the lines, live outside the box. Don't let anyone tell you what to do, or not. Don't be afraid, listen to your heart. Heaven is a state of being – of one-ness, and Hell is a state of being – lost. We simply need to live as we best define ourselves, find our own ways of being who we are in our world. There is no requirement - only freedom of choice. We should not be judged if we are doing what we think best according to our perceptions at any given time. Guilt should be discarded, moved beyond - what matters is who we choose to be in the next moment, given what we might have learned. We continually create ourselves anew. Forgiving someone is a great way to show love, and forgive yourself too for the hurt you held onto far too long. Take back the energy you have wasted on these things and reclaim your power to be your next best self. Honour the past but refresh, expand, renew, fulfill. Heaven is within us, always reachable."
Author: Jay Woodman

Author: Jerry Spinelli

Author: Kady Cross
21. "Having faith in God did not mean sitting back and doing nothing. It meant believing you would find success if you did your best honestly and energetically."
Author: Ken Follett
22. "Still doing your best to ruin the horses, I see."
Author: Kristin Cashore
23. "Perhaps nothing was ever "meant to be." There was just life, and right now, and doing your best. Being a bit "bendy."
Author: Liane Moriarty
24. "My best advice to actors is if you love acting, do it every chance you get. Success does not mean success. All that matters is whether or not you're doing your best to entertain. The way this business works is all about luck and timing."
Author: Matthew Gray Gubler
25. "I'll give you something to cry about!! Hell, no need to get up I'm doing a good job of bawling my eyes out now. It could be that having one of the spokes from my ten speed pierce my thigh depressed me because now that tire will wobble. "Have you learned your lesson?" "Cry sooner because you'll stop quicker?" **SMACK** "Can I go for best three out of five?" ** SMACK** **SMACK** "I'm only beating you because I care!!" "Lucky me, I couldn't have been raised by a heartless bitch?" **SMACK!!** "I think I'm beginning to feel the love now…"
Author: Neil Leckman

Author: Vikrant Parsai
