Everything you can imagine is real.

Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
Wicked men obey from fear; good men, from love.
Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
I can teach anybody how to get what they want out of life. The problem is that I can't find anybody who can tell me what they want.
High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.
Nothing . . . will ever be attempted, if all possible objections must be first overcome.
The best job goes to the person who can get it done without passing the buck or coming back with excuses.
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.
We will either find a way, or make one.
Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.
The only way around is through.
Death comes to all But great achievements build a monument which shall endure until the sun grows cold.
The greater the difficulty the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. Bartlett's Familiar Quotations is an admirable work, and I studied it intently. The quotations when engraved upon the memory give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more.
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.
