"You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space." -- Johnny Cash

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in that gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." -- Theodore Roosevelt

"If you have made mistakes...
there is always another chance for you...
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

"The one important thing I have learned over the years is the difference between taking one's work seriously and taking one's self seriously. The first is imperative, the second is disastrous."
-- Margot Fonteyn

"Some people use failure as an excuse to give up, to become bitter, or cynical. Other people look at failure as an opportunity to revisit past decisions and to devise new strategies."
-- Catherine Pulsifer

What you thought before has led to every choice you have made, and this adds up to you at this moment. If you want to change who you are physically, mentally, and spiritually, you will have to change what you think. -- Dr. Patrick Gentempo

In every person who comes near you look for what is good and strong; honor that; try to imitate it, and your faults will drop off like dead leaves when their time comes.
-- John Ruskin

Change. It has the power to uplift, to heal, to stimulate, surprise, open new doors, bring fresh experience and create excitement in life. Certainly it is worth the risk. -- Leo Buscaglia

Since it's already 2007, I decide to add two more quotations for you to read. So, I will post a total of 5 quotations everytime I sign in here ok. Enjoy!!!

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you until it seems that you cannot hold on for a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -- Harriet Beecher Stowe

"If the winds of fortune are temporarily blowing against you, remember that you can harness them and make them carry you toward your definite purpose, through the use of your imagination."
-- Napoleon Hill

"Believe that you can do it, under any circumstances. Because if you believe you can, then you really will. That belief just keeps you searching for the answers, then pretty soon you get it."
-- Wally "Famous" Amos

The potential of the average person is like a huge ocean unsailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilities waiting to be released and channeled toward some great good.
-- Brian Tracy

"History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats." -- B. C. Forbes

The one resolution, which was in my mind long before it took the form of a resolution, is the key-note of my life. It is this, always to regard as mere impertinences of fate the handicaps which were placed upon my life almost at the beginning. I resolved that they should not crush or dwarf my soul, but rather be made to blossom, like Aaron's rod, with flowers.
-- Helen Keller

A life without purpose is a languid, drifting thing; Every day we ought to review our purpose, saying to ourselves: This day let me make a sound beginning, for what we have hitherto done is naught! -- Thomas A. Kempis

"And if I may be so bold to offer my last piece of advice for someone seeking and needing to make changes in their life—If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree. You have the ability to totally transform every area in your life—and it all begins with your very own power of choice." -- Jim Rohn

If there is one thing upon this earth that mankind love and admire better than another, it is a brave man, -- it is the man who dares to look the devil in the face and tell him he is a devil.
-- James A. Garfield

"We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way." -- Victor Frankl

The sages do not consider that making no mistakes is a blessing. They believe, rather, that the great virtue of man lies in his ability to correct his mistakes and continually make a new man of himself. -- Wang Yang-Ming

The chief lesson I have learned in a long life is that the only way to make a man trustworthy is to trust him; and the surest way to make him untrustworthy is to distrust him and show your distrust.
-- Henry L. Stimson

We learn to fly not by becoming fearless, but by the daily practice of courage. -- Sam Keen

Compassion is bringing our deepest truth into our actions, no matter how much the world seems to resist, because that is ultimately what we have to give to this world and one another.
-- Ram Dass

"You are the person who has to decide. Whether you'll do it or toss it aside; You are the person who makes up your mind. Whether you'll lead or will linger behind. Whether you'll try for the goal that's afar. Or just be contented to stay where you are." -- Edgar A. Guest

"We all have choices to learn or not to learn. However, with choices come results. You can not expect positive results if we choose to limit ourselves to our existing knowledge."
-- Catherine Pulsifer

"Your choice of people to associate with, both personally and business-wise, is one of the most important choices you make. If you associate with turkeys, you will never fly with the eagles."
-- Brian Tracy

"If you have made mistakes…there is always another chance for you. 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

"No one ever went broke by saying no too often." -- Harvey Mackay

"You always do what you want to do. This is true with every act. You may say that you had to do something, or that you were forced to, but actually, whatever you do, you do by choice. Only you have the power to choose for yourself." -- W. Clement Stone

"The remarkable thing we have is a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude." -- Charles Swindoll

"You always do what you want to do. This is true with every act. You may say that you had to do something, or that you were forced to, but actually, whatever you do, you do by choice. Only you have the power to choose for yourself." -- W. Clement Stone

"CHOOSE TO LOVE. . .rather than hate.
CHOOSE TO SMILE. . . rather than frown.
CHOOSE TO BUILD . . . rather than destroy.
CHOOSE TO PERSEVERE . . . rather than quit.
CHOOSE TO PRAISE . . . rather than gossip.
CHOOSE TO HEAL . . . rather than wound.
CHOOSE TO GIVE . . . rather than grasp.
CHOOSE TO ACT . . . rather than delay.
CHOOSE TO FORGIVE . . . rather than curse."

We all need to decide whether to "play it safe" in life and worry about the downside, or instead take a chance, by being who we really are and living the life our heart desires.
Which choice are you making? -- Charlie Badenhop

Principle -- particularly moral principle -- can never be a weathervane, spinning around this way and that with the shifting winds of expediency. Moral principle is a compass forever fixed and
forever true. -- Edward R. Lyman

It may be possible to incorporate laugher into daily activities, just as is done with other heart-healthy activities, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator. The recommendation for a healthy heart may one day be exercise, eat right and laugh a few times a day. -- Michael Miller, MD

When hope is not pinned wriggling onto a shiny image or expectation, it sometimes floats forth and opens like one of those fluted Japanese blossoms, flimsy and spastic, bright and warm. This almost always seems to happen in community. -- Annie Lamott

"Get into a line that you will find to be a deep personal interest, something you really enjoy spending twelve to fifteen hours a day working at, and the rest of the time thinking about."

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single before starting to improve the world.

Nothing will sustain you more potently than the power to recognize in your humdrum routine, as perhaps it may be thought, the true poetry of life. -- Sir William Osler

The tears that you spill, the sorrowful, are sweeter than the laughter of snobs and the guffaws of scoffers. -- Kahlil Gibran

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right place, but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment. -- Dorothy Nevill

You see things; and you say, "Why?" But I dream things that never were; and I say "Why not?"

"You are in charge of your feelings, beliefs, and actions. And you teach others how to behave toward you.

By being a living role model of what you want to receive from others, you create more of what you want in your life." -- Eric Allenbaugh

"Believing in yourself is not for you; it's for every person who has touched your life in a significant way and for every person your life will touch the same way five minutes from now, or five centuries from now." -- Jaye Miller

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.

"If everything came easy in life then we would all have everything and nothing would mean anything."

"Accept the fact that we can control certain things in our lives and that there are many things in life we can't control. Acceptance is just living with the reality and making the best of the situation."

"Inspiration is a guest that does not willingly visit the lazy." -- Pyotr Tchaikovsky

The man who views the world at fifty the same as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life. -- Muhammad Ali
