The heart of a fool is in his mouth, but the mouth of a wise man is in his heart.

You will live your life secure in that you are no longer manipulated by what other people want you to do and be, but are directed by your own inner desires.
If you're not just a little bit nervous before a match, you probably don't have the expectations of yourself that you should have.
If you're proactive, you don't have to wait for circumstances or other people to create perspective expanding experiences. You can consciously create your own.
If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.
If you don't like what you're doing, then don't do it.
Never write an advertisement which you wouldn't want your own family to read. You wouldn't tell lies to your own wife. Don't tell them to mine. Do as you would be done by. If you tell lies about a product, you will be found out -- either by the Government, which will prosecute you, or by the consumer, who will punish you by not buying your product a second time. Good products can be sold by honest advertising. If you don't think the product is good, you have no business to be advertising it.
The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you're in control of your life. If you don't, life controls you.
If you don't do it with excellence, don't do it at all! Because if it's not excellent, it won't be profitable or fun, and if you're not in business for fun or profit, what the hell are you doing there?
Don't be afraid to fail. Don't waste energy trying to cover up failure. Learn from your failures and go on to the next challenge. It's OK to fail. If you're not failing, you're not growing.
If you want to take your mission in life to the next level, if you're stuck and you don't know how to rise, don't look outside yourself. Look inside. Don't let your fears keep you mired in the crowd. Abolish your fears and raise your commitment level to the point of no return, and I guarantee you that the Champion Within will burst forth to propel you toward victory.
The truth isn't the truth until people believe you, and they can't believe you if they don't know what your saying, and they can't know what you've saying if they don't listen to you, and they won't listen to you if you're not interesting, and you won't be interesting until you say things imaginatively, originally, freshly.
If you don't believe in your product, of if you're not consistent and regular in the way you promote it, the odds of succeeding go way down. The primary function of the marketing plan is to ensure that you have the resources and the wherewithal to do what it takes to make your product work.
Don't complain because you don't have. Enjoy what you've got.
You will now have a starting place and a destination, and you will be able to determine what it will cost you to get there. You will be going someplace.
The ultimate security is your understanding of reality.
There are two kinds of people; those who can count and those who can't.
Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.
No two on earth in all things can agree. All have some daring singularity.
Those who dare to fail miserably can achieve greatly.
Those who can bear all can dare all.
Once -- many, many years ago -- I thought I made a wrong decision. Of course, it turned out that I had been right all along. But I was wrong to have thought that I was wrong.
Right is right, even if everyone is against it; and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it.
Anyone can become angry -- that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way -- this is not easy.
The distance between success and failure can only be measured by one's desire.
The door of opportunity is wide open if you are prepared.
A good plan is like a road map: it shows the final destination and usually the best way to get there.
It is enough that we set out to mold the motley stuff of life into some form of our own choosing; when we do, the performance is itself the wage.
Facts in books, statistics in encyclopedias, the ability to use them in men's heads.
Every man has a right to be wrong in his opinions. But no man has a right to be wrong in his facts.
If you're climbing the ladder of life, you go rung by rung, one step at a time. Don't look too far up, set your goals high but take one step at a time. Sometimes you don't think you're progressing until you step back and see how high you've really gone.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
When one pays a visit it is for the purpose of wasting other people's time, not one's own.
Parents can plant magic in a child's mind through certain words spoken with some thrilling quality of voice, some uplift of the heart and spirit.
Nothing is as real as a dream. The world can change around you, but your dream will not. Responsibilities need not erase it. Duties need not obscure it. Because the dream is within you, no one can take it away.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
With Congress, every time they make a joke it's a law, and every time they make a law it's a joke.
Jealousy contains more of self-love than of love.
The secret of happiness is not in doing what one likes, but in liking what one does.
Swallowing your pride seldom leads to indigestion
Before a man can wake up and find himself famous he has to wake up and find himself.
Be ready when opportunity comes. Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet.
Luck can often mean simple taking advantage of a situation at the right moment, It is possible to make your luck by being always prepared.
I teach you the Superman. Man is something that should be overcome.
Our desires always disappoint us; for though we meet with something that gives us satisfaction, yet it never thoroughly answers our expectation.
Losers make promises they often break. Winners make commitments they always keep.
We've got to have a dream if we are going to make a dream come true.
Self-trust is the essence of heroism.
Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning.
Get excited and enthusiastic about you own dream. This excitement is like a forest fire -- you can smell it, taste it, and see it from a mile away.
Winners have the ability to step back from the canvas of their lives like an artist gaining perspective. They make their lives a work of art -- an individual masterpiece.
Expect the best, plan for the worst, and prepare to be surprised.
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.
Forget about the consequences of failure. Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.
There are no mistakes or failures, only lessons.
It is not in the pursuit of happiness that we find fulfillment, it is in the happiness of pursuit.
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.
