Lisa, if you don't like your job you don't strike. You just go in every day and do it really half-assed. That's the American way.
Whenever you are asked if you can do a job, tell 'em, 'Certainly I can!' Then get busy and find out how to do it.
When you play, play hard; when you work, don't play at all.
When asked, 'How do you write?' I invariably answer, 'one word at a time.'
Work does not kill a man, it is worry, irregularity and uncertainty that kill.
All achievement, all earned riches, have their beginning in an idea.
It is easier for a tutor to command than to teach.
The man who is swimming against the stream knows the strength of it.
I do not like to repeat successes, I like to go on to other things.
If A is success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut.
Success is most often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable.
Percentages are why I am rich.
The best of artists has no conception that the marble alone does not contain within itself.
It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go.
Itís not about what it is, itís about what it can become.
To be clever enough to get all that money, one must be stupid enough to want it.
The successful leader must plan his work and work his plan.
I believe that anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do, provided he keeps doing them until he gets a record of successful experiences behind him.
Change yourself and your work will seem different.
The role of the artist is to ask questions, not answer them.
Don't be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
