Quotations I Like

A failure is a man who has blundered, but is not able to cash in on the experience.
Elbert Hubbard

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.
Vince Lombardi

I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure–which is: Try to please everybody.
Herbert Bayard Swope

If you wish success in life, make perseverance your bosom friend, experience your wise counselor, caution your elder brother, and hope your guardian genius.
Jospeph Addison

To climb steep hills requires a slow pace at first.

Try not to become a man of success but a man of value.
Albert Einstein

The man who makes a success of an important venture never wails for the crowd. He strikes out for himself. It takes nerve, it takes a great lot of grit; but the man that succeeds has both. Anyone can fail. The public admires the man who has enough confidence in himself to take a chance. These chances are the main things after all. The man who tries to succeed must expect to be criticized. Nothing important was ever done but the greater number consulted previously doubted the possibility. Success is the accomplishment of that which most people think can’t be done.
C. V. White

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There’s no use being a damn fool about it.
W.C. Fields

The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.
Arthur C. Clarke

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.

Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome.
Samuel Johnson

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
Albert Einstein

Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Govern thy life and thoughts as if the whole world were to see the one, and read the other.
Thomas Fuller

Life is like a library owned by the author. In it are a few books which he wrote himself, but most of them were written for him.
Harry Emerson Fosdick

The whole of life is but a moment of time. It is our duty, therefore to use it, not to misuse it.

There are no classes in life for beginners: right away you are always asked to deal with what is most difficult.
Rainer Maria Rilke

You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life
Winston Churchill

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
Mahatma Ghandi

There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him it is right….
Martin Luther

When one door closes another opens. But often we look so long so regretfully upon the closed door that we fail to see the one that has opened for us.
Helen Keller

the worst thing you can try to do is cling to something that is gone, or to recreate it.
Johnette Napolitano

The shortest way to do many things is to do only one thing at a time.
Richard Cech

Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Albert Einstein

People with many interests live, not only longest, but happiest.
George Matthew Allen

Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities.
Aldous Huxley

He lives long that lives well; and time misspent is not lived but lost.
Thomas Fuller

Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
Thomas Edison

Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Wealth, like happiness, is never attained when sought after directly. It comes as a by-product of providing a useful service.
Henry Ford

All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.
George Washington

You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.
Walt Disney

We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.
Nelson Mandela

There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.
Nelson Mandela

We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
Ronald Reagan

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.
Oprah Winfrey

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
Calvin Coolidge
