Cultivate your curves - they may be dangerous but they won't be avoided.
Too much sanity may be madness - and the maddest of all is to see life as it is and not as it should be.
Yelling at living things does tend to kill the spirit in them. Sticks and stones may break our bones, but words will break our hearts...
Things may come to those who wait but only the things left by those who hustle.
I not only use all the brains that I have, but all that I can borrow.
The greatest sin is to think yourself weak
You'll never do a whole lot unless you're brave enough to try.
Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.
We must have perserverence and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something.
Do not let it be your aim to be something, but to be someone.
The starting point of all achievement is desire.
If you get up in the morning and think the future is going to be better, it is a bright day. Otherwise, it's not.
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
Make the most of yourself....for that is all there is of you.
Everything I've ever done was out of fear of being mediocre.
Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds will continue in others.
If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one.
If you can accept losing, you can't win.
Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.
Go on with what your heart tells you, or you will lose all.
The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.
