You have to dream before your dreams can come true.
Change your thoughts and you change your world.
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
If you paint in your mind a picture of bright and happy expectations, you put yourself into a condition conducive to your goal.
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.
Others have seen what is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not.
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.
Don't ever take a fence down until you know why it was put up.
Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
Courage is the thing. All goes if courage goes.
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.
The starting point of all achievement is desire.
Above all things, respect yourself.
Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.
Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.
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.
Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.
If we go down into ourselves, we find that we possess exactly what we desire.
The greatest sin is to think yourself weak
The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.
Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft!
