Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.
It's always too early to quit.
Expect problems and eat them for breakfast.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.
Well done is better than well said.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
The wise does at once what the fool does at last.
If you can dream it, you can do it.
