Freedom and independence form my character.
Defeat is not defeat unless accepted as a reality-in your own mind.
If my life is going to mean anything, I have to live it myself.
People should pursue what they're passionate about. That will make them happier than pretty much anything else.
Be yourself, let you come through.
When I'm good, I'm very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better.
The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.
We all have possibilities we don't know about. We can do things we don't even dream we can do.
Strength of mind rests in sobriety; for this keeps your reason unclouded by passion.
There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly.
You have to dream before your dreams can come true.
My heroes are the ones who survived doing it wrong, who made mistakes, but recovered from them.
Fantasy is an exercise bicycle for the mind. It might not take you anywhere, but it tones up the muscles that can. Of course, I could be wrong.
Only those are fit to live who do not fear to die; and none are fit to die who have shrunk from the joy of life and the duty of life. Both life and death are parts of the same Great Adventure.
Life is 10 percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life
If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done.
Perseverance and spirit have done wonders in all ages.
Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.
Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities -- always see them, for they're always there.
If I find 10,000 ways something won't work, I haven't failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.
