I want to use television not only to entertain, but to help people lead better lives.

We do not need more intellectual power, we need more spiritual power. We do not need more of the things that are seen, we need more of the things that are unseen.
What every man needs, regardless of his job or the kind of work he is doing, is a vision of what his place is and may be. He needs an objective and a purpose. He needs a feeling and a belief that he has some worthwhile thing to do. What this is no one can tell him. It must be his own creation. Its success will be measured by the nature of his vision, what he has done to equip himself, and how well he has performed along the line of its development.
The size of your accomplishments, the quality of your achievement, will depend very largely on how big a man you see in yourself, what sort of image you get of your possible self, yourself at your best.
We lift ourselves by our thought. We climb upon our vision of ourselves. If you want to enlarge your life, you must first enlarge your thought of it and of yourself. Hold the ideal of yourself as you long to be, always everywhere.
The cities and mansions that people dream of are those in which they finally live.
Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.
Throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps, down new roads, armed with nothing but their own vision.
Three people were at work on a construction site. All were doing the same job, but when each was asked what the job was, the answers varied. Breaking rocks, the first replied. Earning my living, the second said. Helping to build a cathedral, said the third.
I was once ask if a big business man ever reached his objective. I replied that if a man ever reached his objective he was not a big business man.
Some men see things as they are and say, Why? I of dream things that never were, and say, Why not?
It is a paradoxical but profoundly true and important principle of life that the most likely way to reach a goal is to be aiming not at that goal itself but at some more ambitious goal beyond it.
All successful people are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.
A vision without a task is but a dream. A task without a vision is drudgery. A vision with a task is the hope of the world.
Vision -- It reaches beyond the thing that is, into the conception of what can be. Imagination gives you the picture. Vision gives you the impulse to make the picture your own.
It takes someone with a vision of the possibilities to attain new levels of experience. Someone with the courage to live his dreams.
You have to think big to be big.
Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.
It is never safe to look into the future with eyes of fear.
Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.
To be a star, you must shine your own light, follow your own path, and don't worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine brightest.
Yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision, but today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don't be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning Good morning at total strangers.
The darkest day, If you live till tomorrow will have past away.
Rest not. Life is sweeping by; go and dare before you die. Something mighty and sublime, leave behind to conquer time.
To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.
I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked.
Nobody talks so constantly about God as those who insist that there is no God.
When ever a person talks loudly against religion, always suspect that it is not their reason, but their passions, which have got the better of their beliefs. A bad life and a good belief are disagreeable and troublesome neighbors; and when they separate, depend on it that it is for the sake of peace and quiet.
