Success is a state of mind. If you want success, start thinking of yourself as a success.

People have been known to achieve more as a result of working with others than against them.
The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them. Disagree with them. Glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world
Are the ones who do.
Rest not. Life is sweeping by; go and dare before you die. Something mighty and sublime, leave behind to conquer time.
He that loves a book will never want a faithful friend, a wholesome counselor, a cheerful companion, an effectual comforter. By study, by reading, by thinking, one may innocently divert and pleasantly entertain himself, as in all weathers, as in all fortunes.
A child becomes an adult when he realizes that he has a right not only to be right but also to be wrong.
The value of marriage is not that adults produce children, but that children produce adults.
There is a calmness to a life lived in Gratitude, a quiet joy.
The greatest things are accomplished by individual people, not by committees or companies.
The greater the difficulty the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.
When a person's ways please the Lord, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with them.
When you're finally up on the moon, looking back at the earth, all these differences and nationalistic traits are pretty well going to blend and you're going to get a concept that maybe this is really one world and why the hell can't we learn to live together like decent people?
The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch with, never saying a word, and walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you've had.
I remember my youth and the feeling that will never come back any more --the feeling that I could last for ever, outlast the sea, the earth, and all men; the deceitful feeling that lures us on to joys, to perils, to love, to vain effort --to death; the triumphant conviction of strength, the heat of life in the handful of dust, the glow in the heart that with every year grows dim, grows cold, grows small, and expires --and expires, too soon, too soon --before life itself.
When the fight begins within himself, a man's worth something.
Don't mistake activity for achievement.
The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win.
The good man is the friend of all living things.
My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.
If we hope for what we are not likely to possess, we act and think in vain, and make life a greater dream and shadow than it really is.
No winter lasts forever; no spring skips it's turn.
The darkest day, If you live till tomorrow will have past away.
Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. [Psalms 34:14]
Nothing can bring you peace but yourself; nothing, but the triumph of principles.
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where these is hatred, let me sow love.
Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back.
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.
