Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be.

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

Strive for that greatness of spirit that measures life not by its disappointments but by its possibilities.

There is little success where there is little laughter.

Almost everything comes from nothing.

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.

We all have problems. The way we solve them is what makes us different.

Joy comes from using your potential.

To be rich in friends is to be poor in nothing.

Be nice to people on your way up because you’ll meet them on your way down.

To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, this is to have succeeded.

People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.

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.

Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are.

Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.

I cannot make my days longer so I strive to make them better.

Care and diligence bring luck.

Success builds character. Failure reveals it.

From small beginnings come great things.
