Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings.
Dare to be free, dare to go as far as your thought leads, and dare to carry that out in your life.
If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self.
Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings so that you shall come easily by what others have labored hard for.
There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled. There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled. You feel it, donít you?
In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.
Aim for the highest.
Go then if you must, but remember, no matter how foolish your deeds, those who love you will love you still.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.
Focus on where you want to go, not on what you fear.
Years from now, after I'm gone, someone will listen to what I've done and know I was here. They may not know or care who I was, but they'll hear my guitars speaking for me.
I will never be by violence constrained to do anything.
I hope our wisdom will grow with our power, and teach us that the less we use our power the greater it will be.
I seldom end up where I wanted to go, but almost always end up where I need to be.
If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.
In winter, I plot and plan. In spring, I move.
With realization of one's own potential and self-confidence in one's ability, one can build a better world.
If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with.
Faith is taking the first step even when you can't see the whole staircase.
