2016 was a year of shocks, surprises, fresh starts and tough goodbyes. As we say farewell to the past and to some of the world’s most inspirational icons, here are six quotes from leaders we lost this year to help you find strength and power through your 2017 goals:
“Tomorrow belongs to those who can hear it coming.”
“There is no point at which you can say, ‘Well, I’m successful now. I might as well take a nap.'”
“Invention, my dear friends, is 93 percent perspiration, 6 percent electricity, 4 percent evaporation and 2 percent butterscotch ripple.”
Gene Wilder, as Willy Wonka
“If there is one thing I’ve learned in my years on this planet, it’s that the happiest and most fulfilled people I’ve known are those who devoted themselves to something bigger and more profound than merely their own self-interest.”
“Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people.”
“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare.
Impossible is potential.
Impossible is temporary.
Impossible is nothing. ”
