Freedom and independence form my character.
Things may come to those who wait but only the things left by those who hustle.
People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.
Life is entrusted to man as a treasure which must not be squandered, as a talent which must be used well.
I have a dream that one day little black boys and girls will be holding hands with little white boys and girls.
My optimism wears heavy boots and is loud.
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.
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.
Instead of worrying about what people say of you, why not spend time trying to accomplish something they will admire
You're never as good as everyone tells you when you win, and you're never as bad as they say when you lose.
The best way out is always through.
No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.
Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft!
The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.
Status quo, you know, is Latin for 'the mess we're in'.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
You are never too old to become younger!
Be happy, but never satisfied.
We should not give up and we should not allow the problem to defeat us.
A lot of legends, a lot of people, have come before me. But this is my time.
