Can we motivate you to send us “motivational quotes”?

You may have noticed that notifications from Pipedrive end with “motivational quotes” like:

You’re receiving this email because you are not Chuck Norris. Chuck Norris doesn’t need to sell, people buy from him.


You’re a born deal closer. If not today then some day.

We reckoned these quotes would make these official-sounding notifications a little more interesting, and so far people seemed to have liked them. It’s good fun coming up with these tongue-in-cheek quotes, and it’s time to let you have some as well. Please add your funny and motivational quotes in comments, and the best ones will have an eternal life in Pipedrive. We also reserve the right to send our T-shirts to three authors of best quotes.

    We miss 100 percent of the sales we don’t ask for. – Zig Ziglar
    Don’t sell.  Solve – ?

    The sales person will convince you that even though the glass is half full/empty you are getting more than your money’s worth compared to buying a full glass.

    Ross and Wayne – thank you for the contributions! Personally liked the one from Scott Adams but that didn’t feel suitable for Pipedrive. Added the glass-half-empty anonymous quote and “Well, that sale is not going to close itself! ” from Ross.

    Keep ’em coming!

    Ethnicity by Hakan Massoud Navabi

    It doesn’t matter from which ethnicity you belong to; but always be like
    bounded body and never let anyone suffer in pain. Lets throw hate away.
    Lets all think for just five minutes; what will happen if we are
    disunited and United?!

     Stability by Hakan Massoud Navabi

    If everyone loved peace, stability, a faithful world and earth; then
    there would have been two heaven for humans. First the Sky Heaven as it
    already exists and created by almighty God and then the Earth Heaven,
    that humans could create it.

    “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm” – Winston Churchill

    “Remember that failure is an event, not a person.” – Zig Ziglar

    “when you take responsibility you take control”

    “Capitalize on the past, anticipate the future, but focus on TODAY”

    “Success is most often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable.” – Coco Chanel.

    “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson.

    “If at first you don’t succeed, fry, fry a hen” (Don’t quote me on that, I’m still verifying it…)

    “Remember, success isn’t defined by what you have done compared to what others have done. Success is measured by what you have done (with the ability you have) compared to what you could have done, with the ability you have.” – Zig Ziglar.
