The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.

Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.
I attempt an arduous task; but there is no worth in that which is not a difficult achievement.
Where I was born and where and how I have lived is unimportant. It is what I have done with where I have been that should be of interest.
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.
Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.
High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.
Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.
The way to get things done is not to mind who gets the credit for doing them.
God will not look you over for medal, degrees or diplomas, but for scars.
I am always doing things I can't do, that's how I get to do them.
What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality.
To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.
No winter lasts forever; no spring skips it's turn.
We've learned how to destroy, but not to create; how to waste, but not to build; how to kill men, but not how to save them; how to die, but seldom how to live.
Every man who is high up loves to think that he has done it all himself; and the wife smiles, and lets it go at that.
The fellow who does things that count, doesn't usually stop to count them.
Accomplishment is easiest when we work the hardest, and it is hardest when we work the easiest.
If Columbus had turned back, no one would have blamed him. Of course, no one would have remembered him either.
Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and important, although difficult, is the highroad to pride, self-esteem, and personal satisfaction.
The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.
I hope that my achievements in life shall be these -- that I will have fought for what was right and fair, that I will have risked for that which mattered, and that I will have given help to those who were in need that I will have left the earth a better place for what I've done and who I've been.
My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others. That is nice but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success.
God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.
What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.
In a great romance, each person plays a part the other really likes.
There is love of course. And then there's life, its enemy.
Love's greatest gift is its ability to make everything it touches sacred.
Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible -- it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.
The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts, and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together.
Women wish to be loved not because they are pretty, or good, or well bred, or graceful, or intelligent, but because they are themselves.
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.
Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.
Not all of us have to possess earthshaking talent. Just common sense and love will do.
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.
For a man to achieve all that is demanded of him he must regard himself as greater than he is.
Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love.
Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable.
The greatest weakness of most humans is their hesitancy to tell others how much they love them while they're still alive.
The fate of love is that it always seems too little or too much.
What the world really needs is more love and less paper work.
He who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away.
