I want to put a ding in the universe.

It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute... that gives meaning to our lives.
There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again. [Proverbs 24:16]
Consider the postage stamp, my son. It secures success through its ability to stick to one thing till it gets there.
With ordinary talents and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable.
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
By persisting in your path, though you forfeit the little, you gain the great.
To persevere, trusting in what hopes he has, is courage in a man.
For it is in giving that we receive.
To whom much is given is much required. [Luke 12:48]
Always think in terms of what the other person wants.
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.
The only way around is through.
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.
Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.
High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.
Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.
From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.
Patience and tenacity of purpose are worth more than twice their weight of cleverness.
