Quote of the Day | Warren Ellis, motivational speaker

warren ellis

“There is no such goddamn thing. There is only getting up and doing it all over again, smarter and harder, until something ups and fucking kills you, because that’s the only thing big enough to stop you. This is The Great Work, and all you have to do is choose it, not look back and never fucking stop until you’re in your box, under the dirt and flowers are growing between your teeth.

And that is why I’ll never be asked to do motivational speaking. G’night.”

Warren Ellis, responding to the question, “What do you do when (if) you ever feel like giving up?”

That motivated the hell out of me!

I love that man.

Yeah, I find this a damn sight more inspiring than anything said by actual “motivational” speakers. Mostly because it isn’t bullshit.

I’ll take him over Tony Robbins any day.

@Andrew
