We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
Why live an ordinary life, when you can live an extraordinary one.
If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it - then I can achieve it.
Focus on where you want to go, not on what you fear.
I know in my heart that man is good, that what is right will always eventually triumph, and there is purpose and worth to each and every life.
My heroes are the ones who survived doing it wrong, who made mistakes, but recovered from them.
In life, you need either inspiration or desperation.
I love those who can smile in trouble...
Do not look for approval except for the consciousness of doing your best.
When I go, God's going to have to give up his favourite chair.
Question with boldness even the existence of God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear.
Be happy, but never satisfied.
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.
The present is theirs; the future, for which I really worked, is mine.
I invented my life by taking for granted that everything I did not like would have an opposite, which I would like.
Whenever a negative thought concerning your personal power comes to mind, deliberately voice a positive thought to cancel it out.
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 we command our wealth, we shall be rich and free. If our wealth commands us, we are poor indeed.
You must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible.
Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.
If you can't feed a hundred people, then just feed one.
