Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
The slogan, 'Press on,' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
It is well to give when asked, but it is better to give unasked, through understanding.
Friends are an aid to the young,
to guard them from error;
to the elderly,
to attend to their wants and to supplement their failing power of action;
to those in the prime of life,
to assist them to noble deeds.
There are two ways to create happiness.
The first is external. By obtaining better shelter, better clothes, and better friends, we can find a certain measure of happiness and satisfaction.
The second is through mental development, which yields inner happiness.
The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; t
o an opponent, tolerance;
to a friend, your heart;
to your child, a good example;
to a father, deference;
to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you;
to yourself, respect;
to all men, charity.
To fall in love is easy,
even to remain in it is not difficult;
our human loneliness is cause enough.
But it is a hard quest worth making to find a comrade
through whose steady presence one becomes steadily
the person one desires to be.
Anna Louise Strong
People become really quite remarkable
when they start thinking that they can do things.
When they believe in themselves
they have the first secret of success.
Norman Vincent Peale
