People have a way of becoming what you encourage them to be, not what you nag them to be.

I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.

Don’t wait for your feelings to change to take the action. Take the action and your feelings will change.

Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing flawlessly.

Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake.

Always concentrate on how far you’ve come, rather than how far you have left to go.

Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.

It is better to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backward.

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.

Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is.

To have striven, to have made the effort, to have been true to certain ideals–this alone is worth the struggle.

You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you.

Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action.

What matters is the value we’ve created in our lives, the people we’ve made happy and how much we’ve grown as people.

A diamond is just a piece of charcoal that handled stress exceptionally well.

Think like a man of action; act like a man of thought.

If you get up one more time than you fall, you will make it through.

He is able who thinks he is able.

No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again.

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.
