There is a woman at the beginning of all great things.

We will either find a way, or make one.
If life were measured by accomplishments, most of us would die in infancy.
For a man to achieve all that is demanded of him he must regard himself as greater than he is.
The only way around is through.
Death comes to all But great achievements build a monument which shall endure until the sun grows cold.
The greater the difficulty the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
We live in deeds

We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths;
In feelings, not in figures on a dial.
We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives
Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
And he whose heart beats quickest lives the longest:
Lives in one hour more than in years do some
Whose fat blood sleeps as it slips along their veins.
Life's but a means unto an end; that end,
Beginning, mean, and end to all things -- God.
The dead have all the glory of the world.
For what is the best choice, for each individual is the highest it is possible for him to achieve.
When you love someone all your saved-up wishes start coming out.
A proof that experience is of no use, is that the end of one love does not prevent us from beginning another.
The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch with, never saying a word, and walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you've had.
The only victory over love is flight.
Dedicate yourself to the good you deserve and desire for yourself. Give yourself peace of mind. You deserve to be happy. You deserve delight.
My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others. That is nice but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success.
High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.
Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.
The way to get things done is not to mind who gets the credit for doing them.
Nothing . . . will ever be attempted, if all possible objections must be first overcome.
Life affords no higher pleasure than that of surmounting difficulties, passing from one step of success to another, forming new wishes and seeing them gratified.
I want to put a ding in the universe.
To spend life for something which outlasts it.
God will not look you over for medal, degrees or diplomas, but for scars.
I hope that my achievements in life shall be these -- that I will have fought for what was right and fair, that I will have risked for that which mattered, and that I will have given help to those who were in need that I will have left the earth a better place for what I've done and who I've been.
A man may fulfill the object of his existence by asking a question he cannot answer, and attempting a task he cannot achieve.
The mode in which the inevitable comes to pass is through effort.
One must marry one's feelings to one's beliefs and ideas. That is probably the only way to achieve a measure of harmony in one's life.
The best job goes to the person who can get it done without passing the buck or coming back with excuses.
Mere longevity is a good thing for those who watch Life from the side lines. For those who play the game, an hour may be a year, a single day's work an achievement for eternity.
Love is the immortal flow of energy that nourishes, extends and preserves. Its eternal goal is life.
Love is said to be blind, but I know some fellows in love who can see twice as much in their sweethearts as I do.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear.
The motto of chivalry is also the motto of wisdom; to serve all, but love only one.
What the world really needs is more love and less paper work.
The sweetest joy, the wildest woe is love.
Real love stories never have endings.
Not all of us have to possess earthshaking talent. Just common sense and love will do.
Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.
Love, and do what you like.
Love is the beauty of the soul.
What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.
We must love one another or die.
Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible -- it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.
In real love you want the other person's good. In romantic love, you want the other person.
Women wish to be loved not because they are pretty, or good, or well bred, or graceful, or intelligent, but because they are themselves.
The fate of love is that it always seems too little or too much.
If you have it [Love], you don't need to have anything else, and if you don't have it, it doesn't matter much what else you have.
Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. [I Corinthians]
Love is the fulfilling of the Law.
Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Love seeks no cause beyond itself and no fruit; it is its own fruit, its own enjoyment. I love because I love; I love in order that I may love.
Love ceases to be a pleasure, when it ceases to be a secret.
Love is the river of life in the world.
Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable.
Where love is concerned, too much is not even enough.
The greatest weakness of most humans is their hesitancy to tell others how much they love them while they're still alive.
Naturally, love's the most distant possibility.
To try to write love is to confront the muck of language: that region of hysteria where language is both too much and too little, excessive and impoverished.
If it is your time, love will track you down like a cruise missile.
