You have endured worse things; God will grant an end even to these.
Only those are fit to live who do not fear to die; and none are fit to die who have shrunk from the joy of life and the duty of life. Both life and death are parts of the same Great Adventure.
He that can heroically endure adversity will bear prosperity with equal greatest of the soul; for the mind that cannot be dejected by the former is not likely to be transported without the latter.
Give us the fortitude to endure the things which cannot be changed, and the courage to change the things which should be changed, ;and the wisdom to know one from the other.
There are two insults no human will endure. The assertion that he has no sense of humor and the doubly impertinent assertion that he has never known trouble.
The spirit, the will to win, and the will to excel are the things that endure. These qualities are so much more important than the events that occur.
Some of your grief you have cured, and lived to survive; but what torments of pain have you endured that haven't as yet arrived.
All pain is either severe or slight, if slight, it is easily endured; if severe, it will without doubt be brief.
Out of suffering comes the serious mind; out of salvation, the grateful heart; out of endurance, fortitude; out of deliverance faith.
Endurance is one of the most difficult disciplines, but it is to the one who endures that the final victory comes.
Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing, but to turn it into glory.
Firmness in enduring and exertion is a character I always wish to possess. I have always despised the whining yelp of complaint and cowardly resolve.
Be determined to handle any challenge in a way that will make you grow.
The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win.
The feeling of inferiority rules the mental life and can be clearly recognized in the sense of incompleteness and unfulfillment, and in the uninterrupted struggle both of individuals and humanity.
Exaggerated sensitiveness is an expression of the feeling of inferiority.
To an ordinary human being, love means nothing if it does not mean loving some people more than others.
Patience is power; with time and patience the mulberry leaf becomes a silk gown.

Make friends with the angels, who though invisible are always with you. Often invoke them, constantly praise them, and make good use of their help and assistance in all your temporal and spiritual affairs.
You will be a failure, until you impress the subconscious with the conviction you are a success. This is done by making an affirmation which clicks.
Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives.
Constant repetition carries conviction.
You must intensify and render continuous by repeatedly presenting with suggestive ideas and mental pictures of the feast of good things, and the flowing fountain, which awaits the successful achievement or attainment of the desires.
I have never known anyone worth a damn who wasn't irascible.
A fat stomach never breeds fine thoughts.
Those who can bear all can dare all.
We sow our thoughts and reap our actions. We sow our actions and reap our habits. We sow our habits and reap our character. We sow our character, and we reap our destiny.
Nature is at work.. Character and destiny are her handiwork. She gives us love and hate, jealousy and reverence. All that is ours is the power to choose which impulse we shall follow.
It's not what's happening to you now or what has happened in your past that determines who you become. Rather, it's your decisions about what to focus on, what things mean to you, and what you're going to do about them that will determine your ultimate destiny.
More than anything else, I believe it's our decisions, not the conditions of our lives, that determine our destiny.
No love, no friendship can cross the path of our destiny without leaving some mark on it forever.
I believe that you control your destiny, that you can be what you want to be. You can also stop and say, No, I won't do it, I won't behave his way anymore. I'm lonely and I need people around me, maybe I have to change my methods of behaving and then you do it

My darling girl, Unfortunately this earth is not a fairy-land, but a struggle for life, perfectly natural and therefore extremely harsh. All the same, or precisely for this reason, it is happiness and comfort for us men to have a precious sweetheart -- and I have the most precious, the dearest and best of all!
The way I see things, the way I see life, I see it as a struggle. And there's a great deal of reward I have gained coming to that understanding -- that existence is a struggle.
I have always struggled to achieve excellence. One thing that cycling has taught me is that if you can achieve something without a struggle it's not going to be satisfying.

I know I have the ability to do so much more than just stand in front of the camera the rest of my life.
The extent of your consciousness is limited only by your ability to love and to embrace with your love the space around you, and all it contains
You must begin to think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be.
One comes to believe whatever one repeats to oneself sufficiently often, whether the statement be true of false. It comes to be dominating thought in one's mind.

Humans have the ability to shift perspective. We can experience the world through our senses. Or we can remove ourselves from our senses and experience the world even less directly. We can think about our life, rather than thinking in our life. We can think about what we think about our life, and we can think about what we think about that. We can shift perceptual positions many times over.
The person who sends out positive thoughts activates the world around him positively and draws back to himself positive results.

A man must first care for his own household before he can be of use to the state. But no matter how well he cares for his household, he is not a good citizen unless he also takes thought of the state. In the same way, a great nation must think of its own internal affairs; and yet it cannot substantiate its claim to be a great nation unless it also thinks of its position in the world at large.
A lazy person, whatever the talents with which he set out, will have condemned himself to second-hand thoughts and to second-rate friends.
Laziness grows on people; it begins in cobwebs and ends in iron chains. The more one has to do, the more he is able to accomplish.
Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.
Failure is not our only punishment for laziness; there is also the success of others.
Lazy people are always anxious to be doing something.
Of all the forces that make for a better world, none is so indispensable, none so powerful, as hope. Without hope men are only half alive. With hope they dream and think and work.
Hope is the companion of power, and mother of success; for who so hopes strongly has within him the gift of miracles.
Sometimes you have to do the work and hope the career materializes.
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.
Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.
War contains so much folly, as well as wickedness, that much is to be hoped from the progress of reason; and if any thing is to be hoped, every thing ought to be tried.
Though you are disappointed is hope; never let hope fail you! Though one door is shut, there are thousands still open to you.
The best men are not those who have waited for chances but who have taken them; besieged the chance; conquered the chance; and made chance the servitor.

Freedom is nothing else but a chance to be better.
There is no such thing as no chance.

the choices we make and the chances we take, determine our destiny.
How often things occur by mere chance which we dared not even hope for.

There is nothing heavier than compassion. Not even one's own pain weighs so heavy as the pain one feels with someone, for someone, a pain intensified by the imagination and prolonged by a hundred echoes.
Don't look forward to the day you stop suffering, because when it comes you'll know you're dead.
I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.
Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.

You don't get to choose how you're going to die, or when. You can decide how you're going to live now.
In the game of life it's a good idea to have a few early losses, which relieves you of the pressure of trying to maintain an undefeated season.
Life is raw material. We are artisans. We can sculpt our existence into something beautiful, or debase it into ugliness. It's in our hands.
Never tell a young person that anything cannot be done. God may have been waiting centuries for someone ignorant enough of the impossible to do that very thing.
Defeat never comes to any man until he admits it.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
The only correct actions are those that demand no explanation and no apology.
Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.
Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
I would rather be able to appreciate things I can not have than to have things I am not able to appreciate.
Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments; but let us have patience and we soon shall see them in their proper figures.
Perhaps there is only one cardinal sin: impatience. Because of impatience we were driven out of Paradise, because of impatience we cannot return.
Never think that God's delays are God's denials. Hold on; Hold fast; Hold out. Patience is genius.
Our patience will achieve more than our force.
Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them -- every day begin the task anew -
Let this be understood, then, at starting; that the patient conquest of difficulties which rise in the regular and legitimate channels of business and enterprise is not only essential in securing the success which you seek but it is essential to that preparation of your mind, requisite for the enjoyment of your successes, and for retaining them when gained. So, day by day, and week by week; so month after month, and year after year, work on, and in that process gain strength and symmetry, and nerve and knowledge, that when success, patiently and bravely worked for, shall come, it may find you prepared to receive it and keep it,
Experience has taught me this, that we undo ourselves by impatience. Misfortunes have their life and their limits, their sickness and their health.
All things come to him who waits -- provided he knows what he is waiting for.
Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you.
A person is not given integrity. It results from the relentless pursuit of honesty at all times.
With courage you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate and the wisdom to be humble. Courage is the foundation of integrity.
Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.
Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity.
The slow man with integrity will ultimately catch the swift one who has none.
The most important persuasion tool you have in your entire arsenal is integrity.
Subtlety may deceive you; integrity never will.
