Favorite Effort Wasted Quotes

1. "Have learned in life, there will always be some things that we really want but they are just not ever going to surface in our life. We have to take a bow and keep it moving because you never know the reason why it was not put there. It could simply be because there is something better just waiting. Never chase after people or things, unless it is a common effort. Patience is a virtue, wasted time is a something you will never get back. - AHCIII"
Author: A.H. Carlisle III
2. "You said, "I will go to another land, I will go to another sea.Another city will be found, better than this.Every effort of mine is condemned by fate;and my heart is-like a corpse-buried.How long in this wasteland will my mind remain.Wherever I turn my eyes, wherever I may lookI see the black ruins of my life here,where I spent so many years, and ruined and wasted."New lands you will not find, you will not find other seas.The city will follow you. You will roam the samestreets. And you will age in the same neighborhoods;in these same houses you will grow gray.Always you will arrive in this city. To another land-do not hope-there is no ship for you, there is no road.As you have ruined your life herein this little corner, you have destroyed it in the whole world.2"
Author: C.P. Cavafy
3. "The Earth," he said, "is a large and very complex lifeboat. We still do not know what can or can't be done with a proper distribution of resources and it is notorious that to this very day we have not really made an effort to distribute them.

4. "The more I study the works of men in their institutions, the more clearly I see that, in their efforts after independence, they become slaves, and that their very freedom is wasted in vain attempts to assure its continuance. That they may not be carried away by the flood of things, they form all sorts of attachments; then as soon as they wish to move forward they are surprised to find that everything drags them back. It seems to me that to set oneself free we need do nothing, we need only continue to desire freedom."
Author: Jean Jacques Rousseau
5. "Whether they are raised in indigenous or modern culture, there are two things that people crave: the full realization of their innate gifts, and to have these gifts approved, acknowledged, and confirmed. There are countless people in the West whose efforts are sadly wasted because they have no means of expressing their unique genius. In the psyches of such people there is an inner power and authority that fails to shine because the world around them is blind to it."
Author: Malidoma Patrice Somé
6. "It is a waste of time to see people who have only a social surface to show. I will make every effort to find out the real person, but if I can't, then I am upset and cross. Time wasted is poison."
Author: May Sarton
7. "If I have multiple personalities will I taste better to a zombie, or is the effort simply wasted? I've talked it over with myself, and neither of us could agree if that is true or not!!!"
Author: Neil Leckman

Author: Peter S. Beagle
9. "There is no effort in time wasted by remembering the truth. A lie requires an effort of life and wasted time to remember because one lie tends to become a lifestyle that destroys."
Author: Richard Diaz
10. "There's no value in digging shallow wells in a hundred places. Decide on one place and dig deep. Even if you encounter a rock, use dynamite and keep going down. If you leave that to dig another well, all the first effort is wasted and there is no proof you won't hit rock again. (52)"
Author: Swami Satchidananda
