Greatness is measured by how much you do for others, not how much you can get others to do for you!

Every day is a new opportunity. Capture that moment.
If you value your dream, you will value your time. And if you value your time, you will not waste it. Every minute is precious.
Your time is as valuable as the dream you carry.
Correction does much, but encouragement does more. Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.
The roads we take are more important than the goals we announce. Decisions determine destiny.
Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I may not forget you.
Those who are lifting the world upward and onward are those who encourage more than criticize.
A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
Often the test of courage is not to die but to live.
We need to find the courage to say NO to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.
Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.
Don't make excuses! Create solutions!
The way you feel about people, places, things, and ideas in life will always determine how you interact and involve yourself with them. Your attitude governs your entire life.
Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.
If life were measured by accomplishments, most of us would die in infancy.
We will either find a way, or make one.
A man who appears to be above average is merely an image of what the average man should be.
The will is a powerful ally and desperate enemy. When not subdued by self-control, it becomes a tyrant of selfishness. Under the yoke of self-control however, it is a driving force of perseverance.
If you don't do it, it won't get done. And if you don't do it now, you probably won't do it at all. Motivation must defeat procrastination. This is a good time to get started.
For a man to achieve all that is demanded of him he must regard himself as greater than he is.
Not the maker of plans and promises, but rather the one who offers faithful service in small matters. This is the person who is most likely to achieve what is good and lasting.
The only way around is through.
The man who has nothing to do is always the busiest.
Every exit is an entry somewhere else.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

The greater the difficulty the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.
Death comes to all But great achievements build a monument which shall endure until the sun grows cold.
The darkest day, If you live till tomorrow will have past away.
Of all ills that one endures, hope is a cheap and universal cure.
Where there is no vision, there is no hope.
No winter lasts forever; no spring skips it's turn.
Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured and far away. It is not important that he should mature as soon as an apple tree or an oak.
The heights charm us, but the steps do not; with the mountain in our view we love to walk the plains.
If you wouldn't live long, live well; for folly and wickedness shorten life.
Rather go to bed with out dinner than to rise in debt.
Who had deceived thee so often as thyself?
If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.
Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.
The way to see by Faith is to shut the Eye of Reason.
If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write things worth reading or do things worth writing.
The strength of a man consists in finding out the way God is going, and going that way.
