Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th.
Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
Saint Teresa of Avila
The most effective way to do it, is to do it.
Toni Cade Bambara
I was motivated to be different in part because I was different.
The weeds keep multiplying in our garden, which is our mind ruled by fear. Rip them out and call them by name.
Leap, and the net will appear.
Set your sights high, the higher the better. Expect the most wonderful things to happen, not in the future but right now. Realize that nothing is too good. Allow absolutely nothing to hamper you or hold you up in any way.
The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.
To know oneself, one should assert oneself.
If you want to conquer fear, don't sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
Opportunity does not knock, it presents itself when you beat down the door.
Follow your dreams, work hard, practice and persevere. Make sure you eat a variety of foods, get plenty of exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.
The more man meditates upon good thoughts, the better will be his world and the world at large.
