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.

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.

Excellence can be obtained if you care more than others think is wise, risk more than others think is safe, dream more than others think is practical, expect more than others think is possible.

Don’t fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have.

From small beginnings come great things.

Don’t be pushed by your problems; be led by your dreams.

More powerful than the will to win is the courage to begin.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth.
