Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
The first rule is to keep an untroubled spirit. The second is to look things in the face and know them for what they are.
Do not worry about holding high position; worry rather about playing your proper role.
All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.
Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you.
Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds will continue in others.
It always seems impossible until it's done.
Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
If you can't feed a hundred people, then just feed one.
If you are humble nothing will touch you, neither praise nor disgrace, because you know what you are.
You have to make the rules, not follow them.
You need a little bit of insanity to do great things.
Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
Strength of mind rests in sobriety; for this keeps your reason unclouded by passion.
Sovereignty is not given, it is taken.
Give yourself something to work toward - constantly.
Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it.
It's not whether you got knocked down; it's whether you get back up.
The meaning of life is that it is to be lived, and it is not to be traded and conceptualized and squeezed into a patter of systems.
Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.
