Stay focused on the things that matter to you. Be your own motivation.
I believe the term ‘serial killer’ is highly misleading, in that it implicitly suggests to the general public that murder is the paramount object or motivating urge in the mind of the killer ... They naturally attribute this motivation partly because they value human life above all else, and partly because, as their endless fascination with the subject suggests, they have a vague conception of murder as being somehow mystical, highly dramatic, or even a nebulously romantic experience, replete with unimaginable connotations of eroticism. And guilt for it must be paid for in full.ian brady
The UFO research and investigation business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps of corrupt ideology run free, agenda dictates, delusion is rampant and ignorance prevails. The infestation of wrongful motivation and the beggarly depths of belief reign supreme amidst a universal disregard for truth and factual actuality... where good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side . . .kenny young

There are those... who enter the world in such poverty that they are deprived of both the means and the motivation to improve their lot. Unless these unfortunates can be touched with the spark which ignites the spirit of individual enterprise and determination, they will only sink back into renewed apathy, degradation and despair. It is for us, who are more fortunate, to provide that spark.aga khan iv

An arrogant independence to create is my only motivation.david smith
I think the big mistake in schools is trying to teach children anything, and by using fear as the basic motivation. Fear of getting failing grades, fear of not staying with your class, etc. Interest can produce learning on a scale compared to fear as a nuclear explosion to a firecracker.Stanley Kubrick
Even if God could lie, He would have no motivation. He can gain nothing by lying. Everything He wants to have happen happens.james macdonald
Adam Smith’s image of competition in the marketplace was intended as an adjunct to his detailed description of human motivation in The Theory of Moral Sentiments , in which the pursuit of profit is tempered at every juncture by sympathy and benevolence, and by the posture of the “impartial spectator” which is forced on us by our moral nature.ted malloch
Despite the immense diversity of creation, we all accept that there exists in nature a profound underlying unity. The search for this unity provides the motivation for the lives of many different men some who, like Einstein , search for it in general natural laws and others who, like Teilhard de Chardin, would trace cosmic evolution to a divine origin.
Curiosity is defined as a need, thirst or desire for knowledge . The concept of curiosity is central to motivation . The term can be used as both a description of a specific behavior as well as a hypothetical construct to explain the same behavior.
At the conceptual level there are numerous definitions of curiosity which tend to encompass a broad range of characteristics. Boredom is one prerequisite or motivation for curiosity (exploration).
motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.Jim Ryun
Because we are so unfamiliar with the motivation of the people we are dealing with, we are more afraid of them than we need to be.
[SAT scores for admission]...the tyranny of the big test. While conceding that the SAT measures " mental dexterity," the test does not capture qualities such as " motivation " or what the student learned in high school.
