Make failure your teacher, not your undertaker.

The most important persuasion tool you have in your entire arsenal is integrity.

Duty makes us do things well, but love makes us do them beautifully.

The more you are grateful for what you have the more you will have to be grateful for.

Outstanding people have one thing in common: an absolute sense of mission.

Expect the best. Prepare for the worst. Capitalize on what comes.

Ability can take you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.

The greatest of all mistakes is to do nothing because you think you can only do a little.

Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard,
reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be. If we do our best, we are a success.

Some people find fault like there is a reward for it.

Attitude, not Aptitude, determines Altitude.

It’s not how far you fall, but how high you bounce that counts.

Failure is an event not a person.

You are what you are and you are where you are because of what has gone into your mind.
You change what you are and you change where you are by changing what goes into your mind.

You can have everything in life that you want if you just give enough other people what they want.

If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.

You never know when a moment and a few sincere words can have an impact on a life.

There are no traffic jams on the extra mile.

A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could.

Many marriages would be better if the husband and wife clearly understood that they’re on the same side.

You were born to win, but to be a winner you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.

If you go out looking for friends, you’re going to find they are very scarce.
If you go out to be a friend, you’ll find them everywhere.

Make today worth remembering.

The chief cause of failure and unhappiness is trading what you want most for what you want right now.

Among the things you can give and still keep are your word, a smile, and a grateful heart.

When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal;
you do not change your decision to get there.

You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.

Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.

Rich people have small TVs and big libraries, and poor people have small libraries and big TVs.

Of course motivation is not permanent. But then, neither is bathing;
but it is something you should do on a regular basis.
