Donald Trump quotes about women, happiness and motivation

Certain guys tell me they want women of substance, not beautiful models. It just means they can't get beautiful models.

New York Times, 19/9/99

My own mother was a housewife all her life. And yet it's turned out that I've hired a lot of women for top jobs, and they've been among my best people. Often, in fact, they are far more effective than the men around them.

When a man leaves a woman, especially when it was perceived that he has left for a piece of ass - a good one! - there are 50 percent of the population who will love the woman who was left.

The part of my life I think I'm most disappointed in is that I have not had the great marriage. And I would have thought that would have happened, because I came from a home - you know, it's not like some of my friends, they get divorced, but their parents were divorced twice or three times. I came from a home where marriage was just incredible. I mean, my parents truly loved each other.

Pregnancy is "a wonderful thing for the woman, it's a wonderful thing for the husband, it's certainly an inconvenience for a business."

I love beautiful women, and beautiful women love me. It has to be both ways.

All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me - consciously or unconsciously. That's good to be expected.

If you love what you do, you’re happy. You don’t take vacations.

Since I love what I do, I do it vigorously and I do it better. Because I inject it with enthusiasm and passion, it doesn’t feel like work. My passion spills over to everyone around me and motivates them to do their very best.

Trump 101 The Way to Success (2007), p. 1

Get going. Move forward. Aim high. Plan for a takeoff. Don't just sit on the runway and hope someone will come along and push the airplane. It simply won't happen. Change your attitude and gain some altitude. Believe me, you'll love it up here.

Money was never a big motivation for me, except as a way to keep score. The real excitement is playing the game.

Be willing to take on new challenges.

The more people tell you it’s not possible, that it can’t be done, the more you should be absolutely determined to prove them wrong. Treat the word “impossible” as nothing more than motivation.

Sometimes understanding other people’s problems is the key to finding opportunities.

Donald Trump, Midas Touch

The future belongs to the dreamers, not to the critics. The future belongs to the people who follow their heart no matter what the critics say, because they truly believe in their vision.

Demand the best from yourself and be totally unafraid to challenge entrenched interests and failed power structures.
