Negative Quotes

(Back to all quotes.)


Here is a list of negative quotes. Make no mistake, these quotations have positive meaning, but are often taken out of context. They are commonly misused and misunderstood by failures looking for excuses to explain their lack of success. A positive thought should instill the desire to work harder and succeed, not give satisfaction of the effort that lead to disappointment and loss; The latter is merely an excuse. It is my intention that you find some meaning in these quotes, and compare and contrast them with our list of positive and inspirational quotes. While reading them, ask yourself, "Is this quotation inspiring me to accomplish anything?"
