110 Enlightening Drive Quotes Just For You

Drive

When someone has drive, it means they have the energy and determination to achieve what they set out their mind to do. But that's not all drive is all about.

Drive encompasses a variety of meanings, and we'll clarify just that before you enjoy our catchy drive quotes.

Drive is when you operate a vehicle and control the direction it's going and its speed. Basically, when you move in your car from point A to B. You can say that you went on a drive to describe the journey.

It's also to move forcefully in a particular direction, e.g., driven by the wind or when drug addiction drives someone to do illegal things like stealing.

It is to urge people or animals towards a desired direction or goal. Like how a blogger can drive you to their sales page or cattle are driven to the fields.

Drive is used to talk about an innate desire to attain a goal or satisfy a need. For instance, sex drive is that deep sexual desire. To drive is also to impress or give meaning to something, at last, like when you say she drove her point home.

It can also mean to keep something operating, e.g., the machinery is driven by electricity. Last but not least, a drive can be when a group of people brings together efforts to achieve one set goal or sole purpose, like in a recruitment drive by the police.

With all that knowledge in mind, here is a collection of drive quotes about different topics from cars to ambition. Enjoy!

we drove on and on, past little villages and both good things and bad things were happening to the people in those villages too, but I still was nothing but arms and ears and eyes and maybe there'd be either some good luck for me or more death tomorrow.

I haven’t been out driving at this time of night in many years, much less in an unfamiliar area. These are the things that scare you as you get older. You understand night all too well, all its attendant meanings. You try to avoid it, work around it, keep it from entering your house. Your weary, ornery body tells you to stay up late, sleep less, keep the lights on, don’t go into the bedroom—if you have to sleep, sleep in your chair, at the table. Everything is about avoiding the night. Because of that, I suppose that I should be scared out here in the dark, but I am finally past that, I think.
