Art calls for complete mastery of techniques, developed by reflection within the soul.
Results! Why, man, I have gotten a lot of results. I know several thousand things that won't work.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying.
The successful leader must plan his work and work his plan.
I readily absorb ideas from every source, frequently starting where the last person left off
Eighty percent of success is showing up.
Because ideas have to be original only with regard to their adaptation to the problem at hand, I am always extremely interested in how others have used them...
To copy others is necessary, but to copy oneself is pathetic
You can't make souffle rise twice.
One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself.
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goals.
The role of the artist is to ask questions, not answer them.
Practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect.
You don't get paid for the hour. You get paid for the value you bring to the hour.
We struggle with the complexities and avoid the simplicities.
He who will not economize will have to agonize.
I'm not the smartest fellow in the world, but I can sure pick smart colleagues.
Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone
You reach a point where you don't work for money.
Don't wait to be successful at some future point. Have a successful relationship with the present moment and be fully present in whatever you are doing. That is success.
Get around people who have something of value to share with you. Their impact will continue to have a significant effect on your life long they have departed.
