Along with success comes a reputation for wisdom.
Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. And it will leave you unfulfilled.
They can because they think they can.
Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.
One ship sails East,
And another West,
By the self-same winds that blow,
Tis the set of the sails
And not the gales,
That tells the way we go.
Like the winds of the sea
Are the waves of time,
As we journey along through life,
Tis the set of the soul,
That determines the goal,
And not the calm or the strife.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Keep steadily before you the fact that all true success depends at last upon yourself.
Theodore T. Hunger
We are all motivated by a keen desire for praise, and the better a man is, the more he is inspired to glory.
Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.
Frank Loyd Wright
A failure is a man who has blundered, but is not able to cash in on the experience.
There is only one success--to be able to spend your life in your own way.
Success is sweet: the sweeter if long delayed and attained through manifold struggles and defeats.
A. Branson Alcott
The secret of success is to know something nobody else knows.
The greatest results in life are usually attained by simple means and the exercise of ordinary qualities. These may for the most part be summed in these two: common-sense and perseverance.
Failures do what is tension relieving, while winners do what is goal achieving.
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure--which is:
Try to please everybody.
Herbert Bayard Swope
Success does not consist in never making blunders, but in never making the same one a second time.
I long to accomplish a great and noble tasks, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.
The secret of success in life is for a man to be ready for his opportunity when it comes.
Earl of Beaconsfield
Success is the good fortune that comes from aspiration, desperation, perspiration and inspiration.
The surest way not to fail is to determine to succeed.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
If you wish success in life, make perseverance your bosom friend, experience your wise counselor, caution your elder brother, and hope your guardian genius.
Impatience never commanded success.
Edwin H. Chapin
The talent of success is nothing more than doing what you can do, well.
Henry W. Longfellow
To climb steep hills requires a slow pace at first.
I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.
Try not to become a man of success but a man of value.
How far you go in life depends on you being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong. Because someday in life you will have been all of these.
George Washington Carver
The man who makes a success of an important venture never wails for the crowd. He strikes out for himself. It takes nerve, it takes a great lot of grit; but the man that succeeds has both. Anyone can fail. The public admires the man who has enough confidence in himself to take a chance. These chances are the main things after all. The man who tries to succeed must expect to be criticized. Nothing important was ever done but the greater number consulted previously doubted the possibility. Success is the accomplishment of that which most people think can't be done.
C. V. White
And one quote just for fun.....
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no use being a damn fool about it.
