21 Inspirational Quotes For Training Employees From Personalities Around The World


The only thing worse than training your employees and having them leave is not training them and having them stay.

If learners think it looks bad, you may have lost a good percentage of the battle in getting them to pay attention.

Learning experiences are like journeys. The journey starts where the learning is now and ends where the learner is more successful. The end of the journey isn’t knowing more, it’s doing more.

Where my reason, imagination, or interest were not engaged, I would not or could not learn.

Information is a source of learning. But unless it is organized, processed, and available to the right people in a format for decision making, it is a burden, not a benefit.

Gamification is finding the way to incent the behaviors that you want your team to have.

Where my reason, imagination, or interest were not engaged, I would not or could not learn.

It is a play that makes people unafraid to fail and confident to try new things. It is a play that helps us do serious things better because we enjoy them and feel a sense of joy in our achievements.

The only thing worse than training employees and losing them is to not train them and keep them.

Training helps teach the vision and mission, but employees must put the training into action to have meaning.

There are only two way a manager can impact an employee’s output: motivation and training. If you are not training, then you are neglecting half the job.

I was recently asked if I would fire an employee who made a mistake that cost the company $600,000. No, I replied; I just spent $600,000 training him. Why would I want somebody to hire his experience?

Employees cannot become more productive in every sense of the word unless are provided with continuous on-the-job training.

Training Quotes


“No matter how long you train someone to be brave, you never know if they are or not until something real happens.”

“Art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind. As the sun colors flowers, so does art color life.”

“My muscles informed me they did not want to go through any more exercise today. So I suggest that maybe he should let me off this time. He laughed, and I’m pretty sure it was at me…not with me.

“Why is that funny?”

“Oh,” he said, his smile dropping. “You were serious.”

“Of course I was! Look, I’ve technically been awake for two days. Why do we have to start this training now? Let me go to bed.” I whined. “It’s just one hour.”


“How do you feel right now?”

“I hurt like hell.”

“You’ll feel worse tomorrow.”


“So, better get a jump on it while you still feel…not as bad.”

“What kind of logic is that?” I retorted.”

“No one learns as much about a subject as one who is forced to teach it.”

“How do you feel right now?”

“I hurt like hell.”

“You’ll feel worse tomorrow.”


“So, better get a jump on this while you still feel…not as bad.”

“What kind of logic is that?” I retorted.”

“What has mood to do with it? You fight when the necessity arises—no matter the mood! Mood’s a thing for cattle or making love or playing the baliset. It’s not for fighting.”

“Practice is the hardest part of learning, and training is the essence of transformation.”

“If you want to teach people a new way of thinking, don’t bother trying to teach them. Instead, give them a tool, the use of which will lead to new ways of thinking.”

“If you want to find the real competition, just look in the mirror. After awhile you’ll see your rivals scrambling for second place.”

“He who conquers himself is the mightiest warrior.”

“Aren’t they supposed to be hiring someone else to train me, ANYWAY?”

“Yes,” he said, getting up and pulling her to her feet with him. “and I’m worried that if you get into the habit of making out with your instructors, you’ll wind up making out with him, too.”

“Don’t be sexist. They could find me a female instructor.”

“In that case you have my permission to make out with her, as long as I can watch.”

“Nice.” Clary grinned, bending down to fold up the blanket they’d brought to sit on. “You’re just worried they’ll hire a male instructor and he’ll be hotter than you.”

Jace’s eyebrows went up. “Hotter than ME?”

“It could happen,” Clary said. “You know, theoretically.”

“Theoretically the planet can crack in half, leaving me on one side and you on the other side, forever and tragically parted, but I’m not worried about that, either. Some things,” Jace said, with his customary crooked smile, “are just too unlikely to dwell upon.”

“I work my hardest and she still kicks the crap out of me.”

“At one time I thought the most important thing was talent. I think now that — the young man or the young woman must possess or teach himself, train himself, in infinite patience, which is to try and to try and to try until it comes right. He must train himself in ruthless intolerance. That is, to throw away anything that is false no matter how much he might love that page or that paragraph. The most important thing is insight, that is … curiosity to wonder, to mull, and to muse why it is that man does what he does. And if you have that, then I don’t think the talent makes much difference, whether you’ve got that or not.

“It’s much easier on the emotions when one sees life as an experiment rather than a struggle for popularity.”

“So, I must be taken as I have been made. The success is not mine, the failure is not mine, but the two together make me.”

“If we can use an H-bomb–and as you said it’s no checker game; it’s real, it’s war and nobody is fooling around–isn’t it sort of ridiculous to go crawling around in the weeds, throwing knives and maybe getting yourself killed . . . and even losing the war . . . when you’ve got a real weapon you can use to win? What’s the point in a whole lot of men risking their lives with obsolete weapons when one professor type can do so much more just by pushing a button?’

Zim didn’t answer at once, which wasn’t like him at all. Then he said softly, ‘Are you happy in the Infantry, Hendrick? You can resign, you know.’

Hendrick muttered something; Zim said, ‘Speak up!’

I’m not itching to resign, sir. I’m going to sweat out my term.’

I see. Well, the question you asked is one that a sergeant isn’t really qualified to answer . . . and one that you shouldn’t ask me. You’re supposed to know the answer before you join up. Or you should. Did your school have a course in History and Moral Philosophy?’

What? Sure–yes, sir.’

Then you’ve heard the answer. But I’ll give you my own–unofficial–views on it. If you wanted to teach a baby a lesson, would you cuts its head off?’

Why . . . no, sir!’

Of course not. You’d paddle it. There can be circumstances when it’s just as foolish to hit an enemy with an H-Bomb as it would be to spank a baby with an ax. War is not violence and killing, pure and simple; war is controlled violence, for a purpose. The purpose of war is to support your government’s decisions by force. The purpose is never to kill the enemy just to be killing him . . . but to make him do what you want him to do. Not killing . . . but controlled and purposeful violence. But it’s not your business or mine to decide the purpose of the control. It’s never a soldier’s business to decide when or where or how–or why–he fights; that belongs to the statesmen and the generals. The statesmen decide why and how much; the generals take it from there and tell us where and when and how. We supply the violence; other people–“older and wiser heads,” as they say–supply the control. Which is as it should be. That’s the best answer I can give you. If it doesn’t satisfy you, I’ll get you a chit to go talk to the regimental commander. If he can’t convince you–then go home and be a civilian! Because in that case you will certainly never make a soldier.”

“One may not always know his purpose until his only option is to monopolize in what he truly excels at. He grows weary of hearing the answer ‘no’ time and time again, so he turns to and cultivates, monopolizes in his one talent which others cannot possibly subdue. Then, beyond the crowds of criticism and rejection, the right people recognize his talent – among them he finds his stage.”

“Everyone has the fire, but the champions know when to ignite the spark.”

“Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, months and years they spend preparing for it. The victorious performance itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character.”

“Thus the man who is responsive to artistic stimuli reacts to the reality of dreams as does the philosopher to the reality of existence; he observes closely, and he enjoys his observation: for it is out of these images that he interprets life, out of these processes that he trains himself for life.”

“The dogs brought it all back to, you know, to the human side.”

“I frowned as my fingers throbbed. “Wait a sec. There’s a chance I can’t work with fire and you let me do that?”“How else am I going to figure out your limitations?”

“What the hell!” I pulled my hand free, furious. “That’s not cool, Blake. What’s next? Trying to stop a moving vehicle by standing in front of it, but whoops, I can’t do that and now I’m dead?”

“Every beginner possesses a great potential to be an expert in his or her chosen field.”

“Give me a dozen healthy infants, well-formed, and my own specified world to bring them up in and I’ll guarantee to take any one at random and train him to become any type of specialist I might select—doctor, lawyer, artist, merchant-chief and, yes, even beggar-man and thief, regardless of his talents, penchants, tendencies, abilities, vocations, and race of his ancestors. (1930)”

“If there is no element of asceticism in our lives, if we give free rein to the desires of the flesh (taking care of course to keep within the limits of what seems permissible to the world), we shall find it hard to train for the service of Christ. When the flesh is satisfied it is hard to pray with cheerfulness or to devote oneself to a life of service which calls for much self-renunciation.”

“Selfishly, perhaps, Catti-brie had determined that the assassin was her own business. He had unnerved her, had stripped away years of training and discipline and reduced her to the quivering semblance of a frightened child. But she was a young woman now, no more a girl. She had to personally respond to that emotional humiliation, or the scars from it would haunt her to her grave, forever paralyzing her along her path to discover her true potential in life.”

“I might walk vast expanses

of earth and always be beginning

and I love beginning

or could learn

to love it.”

“The parent is protector and trainer, but never the ultimate teacher. Every parent is responsible for teaching their kid basic moral conduct, manners, the difference between love and hate, and right from wrong. However, after maturity, the child must set off to seek knowledge on their own. Religion is never to be forced. And you cannot threaten your child with hell and tell them your religion is the only right way. There is no one right way. The many ways to the Creator are as varied as the colors of a rainbow.”

“Train up a child in such a way she or he should go; even when she or he is old she or he will not depart’ Proverb”

“People skills are useless with cats, because cats are immune to training, and do whatever they decide in any situation… And most importantly they aren’t human.”

“Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms. The great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
