Excellence Quotes


For anyone who went to business school in the 1990s, you’d think Tom Peters, the author of “In Search of Excellence,” invented the very idea of excellence. But excellence quotes tell a different tale. Even Aristotle was intrigued by the idea of striving to be the very best. Excellence quotes illuminate the very concept of what excellence is and what it takes to achieve it. It is a personal quest to better one’s self, using our natural talents and learned skills to improve constantly, trying to move ever forward, reaching for that elusive brass ring we call excellence. And when we get there, we stand proud, knowing that we did the very best we could with the resources we had available, and that alone is enough. Reference.com Definition of Excellence
