The poor will always be with you. [John 12: 8]

Having been poor is no shame, but being ashamed of it, is.
Make sure you visualize what you really want, not what someone else wants for you.
People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. In the end, it is between you and HIM not you and them.
A human being is a single being. Unique and unrepeatable.
The open-minded see the truth in different things: the narrow-minded see only the differences.
A mother understands what a child does not say.
Only he who believes is obedient and only he who is obedient believes.
Those who know the least obey the best.
No principal is so noble, as there is none more holy, than that of a true obedience.
I have thought about it a great deal, and the more I think, the more certain I am that obedience is the gateway through which knowledge, yes, and love, too, enter the mind of the child.
Obedience without faith is possible, but not faith without obedience.
Unwavering obedience to the true principles we learn will assure us spiritual survival.
Every great person has first learned how to obey, whom to obey, and when to obey.
Difficult times always create opportunities for you to experience more love in your life.
You don't develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.
Any woman who thinks the way to a man's heart is through his stomach is aiming about 10 inches too high.
Personal beauty is a greater recommendation than any letter of reference.
There is nothing impossible to him who will try.
To the timid soul, nothing is possible.
Impossible is a word only to be found in the dictionary of fools.
Most of the things worth doing in the world had been declared impossible before they were done.
If someone says can't, that shows you what to do.
Impossibilities are merely things which we have not yet learned.
Attempt the impossible in order to improve your work.
Every man is an impossibility until he is born.
Start by doing what's necessary, then what's possible and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.
The impossible is often the untried.
Nothing is impossible to a willing heart.
All limits are self imposed.
With love and patience, nothing is impossible.
When anyone tells me I can't do anything. I'm just not listening any more.
All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible.
Nothing is impossible to the man who will.
The only lack or limitation is in your own mind.
Something which we think is impossible now is not impossible in another decade.
If you can't, you must. If you must, you can.
You must do the thing that you think you cannot do.
The Difficult is that which can be done immediately; the Impossible that which takes a little longer.
The only place where your dream becomes impossible is in your own thinking.
Impossible situations can become possible miracles.
Today's accomplishments were yesterday's impossibilities.
To the timid and hesitating everything is impossible because it seems so.
Apparently there is nothing that cannot happen today.
A man's limitations are not the things he wants to do and can t; they are the things he ought to do but doesn't. The difficult we will do eventually, the impossible will just take a little more time.
I didn't know it was impossible when I did it
In dreams and love there are no impossibilities.
Man can believe the impossible, but man can never believe the improbable.
We must do our business faithfully, without trouble or disquiet, recalling our mind to God mildly, and with tranquility, as often as we find it wandering from him.
Faithfulness and sincerity are the highest things.
It is better to be unfaithful than faithful without wanting to be.
By faithfulness we are collected and wound up into unity within ourselves, whereas we had been scattered abroad in multiplicity.
Faith is a continuation of reason.
In faith and hope the world will disagree, But all mankind's concern is charity.
May it not be that, just as we have to have faith in Him, God has to have faith in us and, considering the history of the human race so far, may it not be that faith is even more difficult for Him than it is for us?
Faith is to believe what we do not see; and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe.
I am never upset for the reason I think.
Everything that is beautiful and noble is the product of reason and calculation.
Follow your instincts. That's where true wisdom manifests itself.
The law of harvest is to reap more than you sow. Sow an act, and you reap a habit. Sow a habit and you reap a character. Sow a character and you reap a destiny.
Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
Destiny is an absolutely definite and inexorable ruler. Physical ability and moral determination count for nothing. It is impossible to perform the simplest act when the gods say no. I have no idea how they bring pressure to bear on such occasions; I only know that it is irresistible.
A consistent soul believes in destiny, a capricious one in chance.
Thoughts lead on to purposes; purposes go forth in action; actions form habits; habits decide character; and character fixes our destiny.
Sow a thought and you reap an action; sow an act and you reap a habit; sow a habit and you reap a character; sow a character and you reap a destiny.

We are not permitted to choose the frame of our destiny. But what we put into it is ours.

You don't pay the price for success. You enjoy the price for success.
If a man has talent and cannot use it, he has failed. If he has talent and uses only half of it, he has half failed. If he has a talent and learns somehow to use the whole of it, he has gloriously succeeded, and won a satisfaction and a triumph few men ever know.
Material possessions, winning scores, and great reputations are meaningless in the eyes of the Lord, because He knows what we really are and that is all that matters.
It is most difficult, in my mind, to separate any success, whether it be in your profession, your family, or as in my case, in basketball, from religion.
Success is no exclusive club. It is open to each individual who has the courage to choose his own goal and go after it. It is from this forward motion that human growth springs, and out of it comes the human essence known as character.
There is no royal road; you've got to work a good deal harder than most people want to work.
I would rather fail in a cause that will ultimately succeed than succeed in a cause that will ultimately fail.
I couldn't wait for success, so I went ahead without it.
The great accomplishments of man have resulted from the transmission of ideas and enthusiasm.
There is always room at the top.
Only a life built into God's place can succeed. Half of our discouragements are due to the fact that we are not in tune with the infinite harmony of the Great Power, We should be helpers in building the city of God. A city that will endure when all earthly
Success in life is a matter not so much of talent as of concentration and perseverance.
Success and money have nothing in common.
Success consists of doing the common things of life uncommonly well.
Success is best measured by how far you've come with the talents you've been given.
A successful person is a dreamer whom someone believed in.
We don't need more strength or more ability or greater opportunity. What we need is to use what we have.
Success is not a doorway, it's a staircase.
Success can make you go one of two ways. It can make you a prima donna, or it can smooth the edges, take away the insecurities, let the nice things come out.
The secret of success is to do all you can do without thought of success.
You can never have real success till you meet the real person -- YOU.
Make service your first priority, not success and success will follow.
Formula for Success... and then some. The top people do what's expected of them, and then some. They are thoughtful and considerate of others, and then some. They meet their obligations and responsibilities fairly and squarely, and then some. They are good friends to their friends, and then some. They can be counted on in an emergency, and then some. And so it is when we do what is assigned to us in our lives and in the church, and then some; then the Lord pays in full, and then some.
If the truth be known, most successes are built on a multitude of failures.
Big men become big by doing what they didn't want to do when they didn't want to do it.
There's always something about your success that displeases even your best friends.
Success is more attitude than aptitude.
You already have every characteristic necessary for success.
Success occurs when opportunity meets preparation.
Success is failure turned inside out.
The road to success is lined with many tempting parking spaces
You don't have to stay up nights to succeed; you have to stay awake days.

You have not lived a perfect day... unless you have done something for someone who will never be able to repay you.
The only place you find success before work is in the dictionary.
There is no success without hardship.
To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of life.
Here is the basic rule for winning success. Let's mark it in the mind and remember it. The rule is: Success depends on the support of other people. The only hurdle between you and what you want to be in is the support of other people.
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.
To climb steep hills requires slow pace at first.
The path to success is to take massive, determined action.
Not in time, place, or circumstances, but in the man lies success.
The highest reward for a person's toil is not what they get for it, but what they become by it.
Success, in a generally accepted sense of the term, means the opportunity to experience and to realize to the maximum the forces that are within us.
The man who has done his best has done everything.
Success is doing what you want to do, when you want, where you want, with whom you want, as much as you want.
If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.
Happiness is secured through virtue; it is a good attained by man's own will.
To convert somebody go and take them by the hand and guide them.
If the copying machines that came along later had been here during the war, I'm not sure the allies would have won. We'd all have drowned in paper.
Fortune cannot be flattered by such fetish worship. But she can be wooed and won by hard work.
Luck marches with those who give their very best
Teach only love for that is what you are.
Bear the inevitable with dignity.
Change is not only likely, it's inevitable.
Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.
The mode in which the inevitable comes to pass is through effort.
The mark of a good action is that it appears inevitable in retrospect.
Every life is a profession of faith, and exercises an inevitable and silent influence.
Your level of belief in yourself will inevitably manifest itself in whatever you do.
It is the mark of a good action that it appears inevitable in retrospect.
Unexplained joy is always so keen that... it seems to hold enough to reconcile one to the inevitable.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
There is no good in arguing with the inevitable. The only argument available with an east wind is to put on your overcoat.
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.
I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have ? life itself.
If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold you head high, look it squarely in the eye and say, I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.
The effects of our actions may be postponed but they are never lost. There is an inevitable reward for good deeds and an inescapable punishment for bad. Meditate upon this truth, and seek always to earn good wages from Destiny.
Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. A joyful heart is the inevitable result of a heart burning with love
The most essential factor is persistence -- the determination never to allow your energy or enthusiasm to be dampened by the discouragement that must inevitably come.
When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.
Family life is too intimate to be preserved by the spirit of justice. It can be sustained by a spirit of love which goes beyond justice.
If I feel depressed I will sing. If I feel sad I will laugh. If I feel ill I will double my labor. If I feel fear I will plunge ahead. If I feel inferior I will wear new garments. If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice. If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come. If I feel incompetent I will think of past success. If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals. Today I will be the master of my emotions.
Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.
Deliver more than you are getting paid to do. The victory of success will be half won when you learn the secret of putting out more than is expected in all that you do. Make yourself so valuable in your work that eventually you will become indispensable.
Never allow anyone to rain on your parade and thus cast a pall of gloom and defeat on the entire day. Remember that no talent, no self-denial, no brains, no character, are required to set up in the fault-finding business. Nothing external can have any power over you unless you permit it. Your time is too precious to be sacrificed in wasted days combating the menial forces of hate, jealously, and envy. Guard your fragile life carefully. Only God can shape a flower, but any foolish child can pull it to pieces.
To do anything truly worth doing, I must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in with gusto and scramble through as well as I can.
