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.

Baseball is ninety percent mental. The other half is physical
The depth of darkness to which you can descend and still live is an exact measure of the height to which you can aspire to reach.
All science is either physics or stamp collecting.
Mental toughness is to physical as four is to one.
Mathematics alone make us feel the limits of our intelligence. For we can always suppose in the case of an experiment that it is inexplicable because we don't happen to have all the data. In mathematics we have all the data and yet we don't understand. We always come back to the contemplation of our human wretchedness. What force is in relation to our will, the impenetrable opacity of mathematics is in relation to our intelligence.
I know this world is ruled by infinite intelligence. Everything that surrounds us- everything that exists -- proves that there are infinite laws behind it. There can be no denying this fact. It is mathematical in its precision.
I may be compelled to face danger, but never fear it, and while our soldiers can stand and fight, I can stand and feed and nurse them.
Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong.

Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.
Facing it, always facing it, that's the way to get through. Face it.

Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.
A lot of people do not muster the courage to live their dreams because they are afraid to die.
You've got to jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down.
Courage is a special kind of knowledge: the knowledge of how to fear what ought to be feared and how not to fear what ought no to be feared.
The scars you acquire while exercising courage will never make you feel inferior.
Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance.
It is easy to fly into a passion... anybody can do that, but to be angry with the right person to the right extent and at the right time and in the right way that is not easy.
Often the test of courage is not to die but to live.
Mathematics would certainly have not come into existence if one had known from the beginning that there was in nature no exactly straight line, no actual circle, no absolute magnitude.
Mathematics, rightly viewed, poses not only truth, but supreme beauty a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture.
What doesn't kill us makes us stronger.
One must learn to love oneself with a wholesome and healthy love, so that one can bear to be with oneself and need not roam.
One ought to hold on to one's heart; for if one lets it go, one soon loses control of the head too.
A woman may very well form a friendship with a man, but for this to endure, it must be assisted by a little physical antipathy.
