Note how good you feel after you have encouraged someone else. No other argument is necessary to suggest that never miss the opportunity to give encouragement.

Always continue the climb. It is possible for you to do whatever you choose, if you first get to know who you are and are willing to work with a power that is greater than ourselves to do it.
My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.
Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.
Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.
For everyone of us that succeeds, it's because there's somebody there to show you the way out.
Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it.
You must constantly ask yourself these questions: Who am I around? What are they doing to me? What have they got me reading? What have they got me saying? Where do they have me going? What do they have me thinking? And most important, what do they have me becoming? Then ask yourself the big question: Is that okay? Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.
You win only if you aren't afraid to lose.
People need hard times and oppression to develop psychic muscles.
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.
So you wish to conquer in the Olympic games, my friend? And I too, by the Gods, and a fine thing it would be! But first mark the conditions and the consequences, and then set to work. You will have to put yourself under discipline; to eat by rule, to avoid cakes and sweetmeats; to take exercise at the appointed hour whether you like it or no, in cold and heat; to abstain from cold drinks and from wine at your will; in a word, to give yourself over to the trainer as to a physician. Then in the conflict itself you are likely enough to dislocate your wrist or twist your ankle, to swallow a great deal of dust, or to be severely thrashed, and, after all these things, to be defeated.
You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
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.
Rest not. Life is sweeping by; go and dare before you die. Something mighty and sublime, leave behind to conquer time.
Adapt yourself to the things among which your lot has been cast and love sincerely the fellow creatures with whom destiny has ordained that you shall live.
Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.
The best and fastest way to learn a sport is to watch and imitate a champion.
In previous years I was so fired up at times I made little mistakes. So I kept telling myself to be patient, relax, play like you do in practice. What I've been doing in practice will carry over into the game.
Don't do anything in practice that you wouldn't do in the game.
It's not necessarily the amount of time you spend at practice that counts; it's what you put into the practice.
The discover of what is true, and the practice of that which is good, are the two most important objects of philosophy.
For what is the best choice, for each individual is the highest it is possible for him to achieve.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
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.
I've found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.
