A collection of hobby quotes to inspire
and encourage you.
We do not develop anything with one giant step. No matter who you are, or what you do, each one of us had had to take a lot of individual steps to accomplish a task, a job, a career, or even a hobby. Each step serves to move us forward even if it is an inch at a time.
Catherine Pulsifer, Little Steps
Retirement gives you the time literally to recreate yourself through a sport,
game, or hobby that you always wanted to try or that you haven't
done in years.
Steven D. Price, How to Survive Retirement: Reinventing Yourself for the Life You've Always Wanted
It is in our leisure hours that we are permitted to follow our "hobbies,"
and it is in them that our truer selves find expression. Many of the greatest
men in the world's history achieved their fame outside of their
regular occupations in the spare moments of time which most
people think are of no serious use.
We should make some time in between and organize our life,
relax ourselves and spend more time with our family, friends,
and pursue our own hobbies.
Robert Gallagher, Stress Management:
Today is life - the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today.
Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby.
Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto."
Happy is the man who can make a living by his hobby.
George Bernard Shaw

Words of Encouragement
Engage in tasks and hobbies that bring you joy,
like reading a book or going for a run."
Each individual has a definition of passion but not all of
these definitions have to do with what you earn a living from.
Some people have a passion for a certain hobby whether that is
as an active participant or from a sideline fan, or something they
have a great deal of pleasure doing as a hobby like golf, tennis,
skiing, bowling, or building model planes.
Byron Pulsifer, Work Schedule

Poems About Life
Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets,
keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.
In their time away from work and the hassles of daily life, people tend
to display their passions and personal interests. Someone's hobbies
can reveal a lot about their personality.
David S. Walton, Influence: The Influence Blueprint
There is no better confidence or self-esteem boost than learning a new skill, trade, piece of software, or even a new hobby. It will give you that sense of accomplishment we all like to experience."
Christopher Epstein, Self Esteem
Reading is the noblest of all the hobbies,
that is why people mention it so frequently in their resume
even if they don't read much.
Find a way to relax that takes you to a joyful level,
a level that quits the nerves and allows thoughts to be calm.
One of these relaxing moods can be instilled through a hobby and
one that brings you satisfaction and one that thoroughly involves your mind in something different than that which you do for work, or is a necessity.
Byron Pulsifer, The Tonic Of Life
Martial arts is such a great hobby for a lawyer-executive type
like myself because it not only forces you to relieve physical and
mental tension, but also forces you to maintain your physical fitness,
which gets much harder as you age.
Cash Nickerson, Listening as a Martial Art
One of the greatest ways to triumph over wanting to eat constantly
is to teach yourself how to focus on something else -- something
you enjoy doing. In other words, get a hobby!
Nancy S. Mure
To find an absolute passion in your life is to look beyond what
you do for a living, or have as a hobby. It is to look at who you are,
what you stand for, and what makes you want to jump out of bed early
on a Saturday morning even though you have no need to rise early.
Byron Pulsifer, Do You Dare
If some of us are driven to fill our days with work, with accomplishments,
with meetings, exchanges of one kind or another, we need to apportion
those hours with time for our children, our lovers, our thoughts,
our hobbies, our true selves.
Jonathon Lazear, Meditations for Men Who Do Too Much
There are two categories of people who need hobbies - sick people
and well people. Hobbies are good cures for self-pity, idleness and
loneliness - three great enemies of convalescents. For well people, hobbies are a preventive against
overfatigue and many kinds of nervous ailments. In addition,
oldsters who feel their usefulness slipping away may find they
can continue to serve and possibly to earn by means of a hobby.
Running a magazine
stand or operating a small vegetable garden may keep a man
in his seventies on his feet for years to come. Hobbies and long
life go together. An avocation is good medicine for young and old.
