People may flatter themselves just as much by thinking that their faults are always present to other people's minds, as if they believe that the world is always contemplating their individual charms and virtues.

Faults are beauties in a lovers eye.
To have in general but little feeling, seems to be the only security against feeling too much on any particular occasion.
Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.
Fear is a disease that eats away at logic and makes man inhuman.
Anything I've ever done that ultimately was worthwhile... initially scared me to death.
Fear of success can also be tied into the idea that success means someone else's loss. Some people are unconsciously guilty because they believe their victories are coming at the expense of another.
There is nothing with which every man is so afraid as getting to know how enormously much he is capable of doing and becoming.
What is difficulty? Only a word indicating the degree of effort required to accomplish something! A mere notice of the necessity for exertion; a scarecrow to children and fools and a stimulus to real men.
The very greatest things -- great thoughts, discoveries, inventions -- have usually been nurtured in hardship, often pondered over in sorrow, and at length established with difficulty.
It sometimes seems that we have only to love a thing greatly to get it.
You can have anything you want if you want it desperately enough. You must want it with an inner exuberance that erupts through the skin and joins the energy that created the world.
By annihilating the desires, you annihilate the mind. Every man without passions has within him no principle of action, nor motive to act.
There are confessable agonies, sufferings of which one can positively be proud. Of bereavement, of parting, of the sense of sin and the fear of death the poets have eloquently spoken. They command the world's sympathy. But there are also discreditable anguishes, no less excruciating than the others, but of which the sufferer dare not, cannot speak. The anguish of thwarted desire, for example.
We never desire strongly, what we desire rationally.
Limited in his nature, infinite in his desire, man is a fallen god who remembers heaven.
When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been and there you will always long to return.
But what we call our despair is often only the painful eagerness of unfed hope.
When you become detached mentally from yourself and concentrate on helping other people with their difficulties, you will be able to cope with your own more effectively. Somehow, the act of self-giving is a personal power-releasing factor.
Determination is the wake-up call to the human will.
There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul.
Difficult times always create opportunities for you to experience more love in your life.
When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
Living at risk is jumping off the cliff and building your wings on the way down
