It is for us to pray not for tasks equal to our powers, but for powers equal to our tasks, to go forward with a great desire forever beating at the door of our hearts as we travel toward our distant goal. -- Helen Keller

That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all." -- Emily Dickenson

You can make it.

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. -- John Calvin Coolidge

Fight one more round. When your arms are so tired that you can hardly lift your hands to come on guard, fight one more round. When your nose is bleeding and your eyes are black and you are so tired that you wish your opponent would crack you one on the jaw and put you to sleep, fight one more round - remembering that the man who always fights one more round is never whipped.
-- James Corbett

What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it. -- Alexander Graham Bell

To know just what has to be done, then to do it, comprises the whole philosophy of practical life.

The greedy search for money or success will almost always lead men into unhappiness. Why? Because that kind of life makes them depend upon things outside themselves. -- André Maurois

The good life, as I conceive it, is a happy life. I do not mean that if you are good you will be happy; I mean that if you are happy you will be good. -- Bertrand Russell

All happy people are grateful. Ungrateful people cannot be happy. We tend to think that being unhappy leads people to complain, but it’s truer to say that complaining leads to people becoming unhappy. -- Dennis Prager

In vain do they talk of happiness who never subdued an impulse in obedience to a principle. He who never sacrificed a present to a future good, or a personal to a general one, can speak of happiness only as the blind speak of color. -- Horace Mann

To get rich never your risk your health. For it is the truth that health is the wealth of wealth.
Richard Baker Half the costs of illness are wasted on conditions that could be prevented.

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, not so good when people obey and acclaim him, worse when they despise him....But of a good leader who talks little when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say, "We did it ourselves.” -- Lao Tzu

A true leader always keeps an element of surprise up his sleeve, which others cannot grasp but which keeps his public excited and breathless. -- Charles deGaulle

Leadership is not magnetic personality that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not "making friends and influencing people"—that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person's vision to higher sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations. -- Peter F. Drucker

Leaders are visionaries with a poorly developed sense of fear and no concept of the odds against them. They make the impossible happen. -- Dr. Robert Jarvik

The main characteristics of effective leadership are intelligence, integrity or loyalty, mystique, humor, discipline, courage, self sufficieny and confidence. -- James L. Fisher

Good leaders make people feel that they're at the very heart of things, not at the periphery. Everyone feels that he or she makes a difference to the success of the organization. When that happens people feel centered and that gives their work meaning. -- Warren Bennis

The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
-- Theodore Roosevelt

It is very comforting to believe that leaders who do terrible things are, in fact, mad. That way, all we have to do is make sure we don't put psychotics in high places and we've got the problem solved. -- Thomas Wolfe

Peace is not something you wish for; it's something you make, something you do, something you are, something you give away. -- Robert Fulghum

If the human race wishes to have a prolonged and indefinite period of material prosperity, they have only got to behave in a peaceful and helpful way toward one another. -- Winston Churchill

The world will never have lasting peace so long as men reserve for war the finest human qualities. Peace, no less than war, requires idealism and self-sacrifice and a righteous and dynamic faith. -- John Foster Dulles

More than an end to war, we want an end to the beginning of all wars -- yes, an end to this brutal, inhuman and thoroughly impractical method of settling the differences between governments.
-- Franklin D. Roosevelt

Love is the emblem of eternity;
it confounds all notions of time;
effaces all memory of beginning,
all fear of an end. -- Madame de Stael

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. -- Eleanor Roosevelt

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. -- Calvin Coolidge

Those are a success who have lived well, laughed often, and loved much; who have gained the respect of intelligent people and the love of children, who have filled their niche and accomplished their task, who leave the world better than they found it, whether by a perfect poem or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of the earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best they had. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat. -- Theodore Roosevelt

We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit on a hot stove lid again and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore. -- Mark Twain

The questions you ask consistently will create either enervation or enjoyment, indignation or inspiration, misery or magic. Ask the questions that will uplift your spirit and push you along the path of human excellence. -- Tony Robbins

Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. If we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant may prove to be our executioner.
-- General Omar Bradley

Do more than exist : live,
Do more than touch : feel,
Do more than look : observe,
Do more than read : absorb,
Do more than hear : listen,
Do more than listen : understand,
Do more than think : reflect,
Do more than just talk : say something.

Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can. -- John Wesley

Do the right thing;
Do it today;
Do it with no hope of return or promise of reward;
Do it with a smile and cheerful attitude;
Do it day after day after day
Do it, and someday
There will come a day
That will be a payday
For all the yesterdays
You spent focused on the current day –
That will not only give value to today,
But will make each future day
Outshine each yesterday.
And what more could you ask of a day? -- John C. Maxwell

Things that advance your overall life purpose.
Things you have always wanted to do.
Things that others say can’t be done.
Things that help you grow to your maximum potential.
Things that develop other people’s ability to achieve and lead.
Things that multiply-rather than merely add-value to yourself and others.
Things that harness your creativity.
Things you can delegate to others.
Things that promote teamwork and synergy.
Things that are now or never opportunities.

Although men are accused of not knowing their own weakness, yet perhaps few know their own strength. It is in men as in soils, where sometimes there is a vein of gold which the owner knows not of. -- Jonathan Swift

If you have made mistakes, even serious mistakes, you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down.
-- Mary Pickford

A childlike man is not a man whose development has been arrested; on the contrary, he is a man who has given himself a chance of continuing to develop long after most adults have muffled themselves in the cocoon of middle aged habit and convention. -- Aldous Huxley

In work, the greatest satisfaction lies - the satisfaction of stretching yourself, using your abilities and making them expand, and knowing that you have accomplished something that could have been done only by your unique apparatus. This is really the center of life, and those who never orient themselves in this direction are missing more than they ever know. -- Kenneth Alsop (1920-1973)

"So if you have a dream then just believe that you can achieve it no matter what. Even when you can't feel deep in your heart any words of encouragement, just believe in your dream and your heart will finally show you the way." -- Shuchi Gupta, from Believe in Your Dreams and Yourself!

"Feeling appreciated is one of the most important needs that people have. When you share with someone your appreciation and gratitude, they will not forget you. Appreciation will return to you many times." -- Steve Brunkhorst, from 7 Gifts that Multiply Happiness

I forget who it was that recommended men for their soul’s good to do each day two things they disliked. . . . It is a precept I have followed scrupulously: for every day I have got up and I have gone to bed. -- William Somerset Maugham

Who has courage to say no again and again to desires, to despise the objects of ambition, who is a whole in himself, smoothed and rounded. -- Quintus Horatius Flaccus Horace

Nothing is more harmful to the service, than the neglect of discipline; for that discipline, more than numbers, gives one army superiority over another. -- George Washington

The successful person has the habit of doing the things failures don't like to do. They don't like doing them either necessarily. But their disliking is subordinated to the strength of their purpose.
-- E.M. Gray

In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won was over themselves… self-discipline with all of them came first. -- Harry S. Truman

The great end of education is to discipline rather than to furnish the mind; to train it to the use of its own powers, rather than fill it with the accumulation of others. -- Tyron Edwards

If you will discipline yourself to make your mind self-sufficient you will thereby be least vulnerable to injury from the outside. -- Critias of Athen

No steam or gas drives anything until it is confined. No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined. -- Harry Emerson Fosdick D.D

If we conducted ourselves as sensibly in good times as we do in hard times, we could all acquire a competence. -- William Feather

Keep your heart open to dreams. For as long as there's a dream, there is hope, and as long as there is hope, there is joy in living.

We should show life neither as it is or as it it ought to be, but only as we see it in our dreams.
-- Count Leo Tolstoy

They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. In their grey visions they obtain glimpses of eternity. -- Edgar Allan Poe

Toil, feel, think, hope; you will be sure to dream enough before you die, without arranging for it.

The goal you set must be challenging. At the same time, it should be realistic and attainable, not impossible to reach. It should be challenging enough to make you stretch, but not so far that you break. -- Rick Hansen

When I am anxious it is because I am living in the future. When I am depressed it is because I am living in the past.

My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose - somehow we win out. -- Ronald Reagan

Life is mostly froth and bubble, two things stand like stone, kindness in another’s trouble, courage in your own. -- Adam Lindsay

Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow. -- Mary Anne Radmacher

Success is not measured by what you can accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds. -- Orison Swett Marden

There is no short cuts to success. Persevere! Never give up, for that moment could be just the place and time that the tide will turn. And when it does, the satisfaction is immense.

One thing that all successful people have in common is that they have mastered the ability to manage their time. First and foremost, they have organized themselves.

You never regain lost time, so make the most of every moment.”

More to improve and fewer to disapprove.
More doers and fewer talkers.
More to say it can be done and fewer to say it’s impossible.
More to inspire others and fewer to throw cold waters on them.
More to get into the thick of things and fewer to sit on the sidelines.
More to point out what’s right and fewer to show what’s wrong.
More to light a candle and fewer to curse the darkness.

Failure is really a matter of conceit. People don’t work hard because, in their conceit, they imagine they’ll succeed without ever making an effort. Most people believe that they’ll wake up some day and find themselves rich. Actually, they’ve got it half right, because eventually they do wake up. -- Thomas Edison

In the morning, whoever you are, wherever you are, however old or young, and bounding out of bed because there’s something out there that you love to do, that you believe in, that you’re good at – something that’s bigger than you are, and you can hardly wait to get at it again today. -- Whit Hobbs

Works exactly opposite to the way a savings account does. In a saving account, as time goes by, your money compounds interest. The longer you leave it untouched, the more it increases. When it comes to potential, the longer you leave it untouched, the more it decreases. Unused potential wastes away. If you want your potential to increase, you have to tap into it. -- John C. Maxwell

It’s easier to settle for average than strive for achievement,
It’s easier to be saturated with complacency than stirred with compassion,
It’s easier to be skeptical than successful,
It’s easier to question than conquer,
It’s easier to rationalize your disappointments than realize your dreams,
It’s easier to belch the baloney than bring home the bacon.

Opportunities and motivation are connected. Motivated people see opportunities, and opportunities are often what motivate people. Great attitudes precede great opportunities. Who you are determines what you see. Today is the best day for an opportunity. Opportunity always takes “now” for an answer. -- John C. Maxwell

People like you and I, though mortal of course like everyone else, do not grow old no matter how long we live...[We] never cease to stand like curious children before the great mystery into which we were born. -- Albert Einstein

It is not good for all our wishes to be filled; through sickness we recognize the value of health; through evil, the value of good; through hunger, the value of food; through exertion, the value of rest. -- Greek saying

You are not happy because you are well. You are well because you are happy. You are not depressed because trouble has come to you, but trouble has come to you because you are depressed. You can change your thoughts and feelings, and then the outer things will come to correspond, and indeed there is no other way of working. -- Emmet Fox

Never say I love you,
If you really don’t care..
Never talk about feelings,
If they aren’t really there..
Never hold my hand,
If you are going to break my heart..
Never say you going to,
If you don’t plan to start..
Never look to my eyes,
If all you do is lie..
Never say hello,
If you really mean good bye..
If you really mean forever,
Then say you will try..
Never say forever,
Cause forever makes me cry..

"Sometimes the knowledge you've been given in school or by an elder - 'this is just the way it is' - keeps you from accomplishing because it traps you in a box in your mind and limits your freedom to deliver." -- Yanni

Women observe subconsciously a thousand little details, without knowing they are doing so. Their subconscious mind adds these little things together--and they call the result intuition. -- Agatha Christie

Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves. -- J.M. Barrie

"No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars or sailed an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit." -- Helen Keller
