I always prefer to believe the best of everybody -- it saves so much trouble.
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you've got to have is faith and discipline when you're not yet a winner.
The principal part of faith is patience.
Faith makes all things possible... love makes all things easy.

Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Storms make the oak grow deeper roots.
Resolve never to quit, never to give up, no matter what the situation.
It cannot be too often repeated that it is not helps, but obstacles, not facilities, but difficulties that make men.
A faith to live by, a self to live with, and a purpose to live for.
Only the person who has faith in himself is able to be faithful to others.
Love conquers all, but if love doesn't do it, try hard work
No one has ever drowned in sweat.

If you get up one time more than you fall, you will make it through.
All great achievements require time.
You just can't beat the person who never gives up.
A man is not finished when he's defeated; he's finished when he quits.

The darkest hour is just before the dawn.
If you are truly flexible and go until... there is really very little you can't accomplish in your lifetime.
How long should you try? Until.
It's hard to beat a person who never gives up.
Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters.
Adversities do not make a man frail. They show what sort of man he is.
All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today.

The most silent people are generally those who think most highly of themselves.

Success is 99 percent failure.
The man who tries to do something and fails is infinitely better than he who tries to do nothing and succeeds.
Believe and act as if it were impossible to fail.
You will never stub your toe standing still. The faster you go, the more chance there is of stubbing your toe, but the more chance you have of getting somewhere.
Anyone seen on a bus after age thirty has been a failure in life.
Sometimes the best gain is to lose.
The moment avoiding failure becomes your motivation, you're down the path of inactivity. You stumble only if you're moving.
Use the losses and failures of the past as a reason for action, not inaction.
I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.
To expect defeat is nine-tenths of defeat itself.
You don't drown by falling in the water; you drown by staying there.
A man's life is interesting primarily when he has failed -- I well know. For it's a sign that he tried to surpass himself.
The only people who never fail are those who never try.
He who has never failed somewhere, that man can not be great.
The season of failure is the best time for sowing the seeds of success.
Many men fail because they quit too soon. They lose faith when the signs are against them. They do not have the courage to hold on, to keep fighting in spite of that which seems insurmountable. If more of us would strike out and attempt the impossible, we very soon would find the truth of that old saying that nothing is impossible... abolish fear and you can accomplish anything you wish.
Success is the proper utilization of failure.
A hard fall means a high bounce... if you're made of the right material.
From time to time, life as a leader can look hopeless. To help you, consider a man who lived through this: Failed in business at age 31. Defeated for the legislature at 32.

Defeated for Congress at 48. Defeated for Senate at 55. Defeated for Vice President at 56. Defeated for Senate at 58. Elected President at age 60. This man was Abraham Lincoln.

If one does not fail at times, then one has not challenged himself.
What is defeat? Nothing but education. Nothing but the first step to something better.
Losing is a part of winning.
People need hard times and oppression to develop psychic muscles.
To win you've got to stay in the game.
I cannot give the formula for success, but I can give you the formula of failure -- which is try to please everybody.
Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

Everywhere in life, the true question is not what we gain, but what we do.
People may doubt what you say, but they will believe what you do.
An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory.
Why should we be cowed by the name of Action?.
Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment.
Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action.
If you keep thinking about what you want to do or what you hope will happen, you don't do it, and it won't happen.
The superior man is modest in his speech but exceeds in his actions.
If you don't make things happen then things will happen to you.
I never worry about action, but only inaction.
I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.
Good actions ennoble us, and we are the sons of our own deeds.
The thing that counts most in the pursuit of happiness is choosing the right companion.
The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so.
The biggest lie on the planet: When I get what I want, I will be happy.
Happiness consists of three things; Someone to love, work to do, and a clear conscience.
Happiness is not a brilliant climax to years of grim struggle and anxiety. It is a long succession of little decisions simply to be happy in the moment.
When we recall the past, we usually find that it is the simplest things -- not the great occasions -- that in retrospect give off the greatest glow of happiness.
Happiness is not a destination. It is a method of life.
Remember that happiness is a way of travel, not a destination.

Life's greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved.
I am more and more convinced that our happiness or our unhappiness depends far more on the way we meet the events of life than on the nature of those events themselves.
Happiness is a wine of the rarest vintage, and seems insipid to a vulgar taste.
If you want to be happy for a year, plant a garden; If you want to be happy for life, plant a tree.
If you want happiness for an hour -- take a nap. If you want happiness for a day -- go fishing. If you want happiness for a month -- get married. If you want happiness for a year -- inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime -- help someone else.
Happiness is not a possession to be prized. It is a quality of thought, a state of mind.
Happiness is not so much in having or sharing. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
Happiness grows at our own firesides, and is not to be picked in stranger's gardens.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
Happiness is not being pained in body or troubled in mind.
Those who seek happiness miss it, and those who discuss it, lack it.
Love is shown in your deeds, not in your words.
The risk of a wrong decision is preferable to the terror of indecision.
The policy of being too cautious is the greatest risk of all.
Growth means change and change involves risk, stepping from the known to the unknown.
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
To get rich never risk your health. For it is the truth that health is the wealth of wealth.
When you play it too safe, you're taking the biggest risk of your life. Time is the only wealth we're given.
You'll always miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
Others attempt to live cautiously in the safety of established patterns. They do not feel fulfilled, yet they have found a formula not of success (whatever that is), but of avoiding failure. This is the living death -- when security becomes the overwhelming consideration.
It is better to err on the side of daring than the side of caution.
