People can cry much easier than they can change.

Dignity consists not in possessing honors, but in the consciousness that we deserve them.
What it lies in our power to do, it lies in our power not to do.
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
Man is a goal seeking animal. His life only has meaning if he is reaching out and striving for his goals.
First, have a definite, clear practical ideal; a goal, an objective. Second, have the necessary means to achieve your ends; wisdom, money, materials, and methods. Third, adjust all your means to that end.
It is easy to perform a good action, but not easy to acquire a settled habit of performing such actions.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
