Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
Know or listen to those who know.
Wherever you are - be all there.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
The most effective way to do it, is to do it.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
It's always too early to quit.
Begin to be now what you will be hereafter.
I can, therefore I am.
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
Far better is it 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 a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
I've come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.
Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out.
Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.
Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed on an equal or greater benefit.
Before success comes in any man's life, he's sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That's exactly what the majority of men do.
