Don't fear failure. Not failure, but low aim, is the crime. In great attempts it is glorious even to fail.
I'm sorry I wrote you such a long letter; I didn't have time to write a short one.
Never look back unless you are planning to go that way.
If you want creative workers, give them enough time to play.
The greatest sin is to think yourself weak
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
Get up, stand up, Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, Don't give up the fight.
If you can't you must, and if you must you can.
You can't live a perfect day until you do something for someone who will never be able to repay you.
I will take fate by the throat; it will never bend me completely to its will.
Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it.
You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
I trust that everything happens for a reason, even if we are not wise enough to see it.
You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and to impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.
Why live an ordinary life, when you can live an extraordinary one.
Victory is for those who can say 'Victory is mine'. Success is for those who can begin saying 'I will succeed' and say 'I have succeeded' in the end.
Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
The great art of life is sensation, to feel that we exist, even in pain.
Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings so that you shall come easily by what others have labored hard for.
With realization of one's own potential and self-confidence in one's ability, one can build a better world.
I love those who can smile in trouble...
