To know oneself, one should assert oneself.
Begin to be now what you will be hereafter.
Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.
Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.
If you can dream it, you can do it.
What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.
Know or listen to those who know.
Leap, and the net will appear.
If you're going through hell, keep going.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.
Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.
Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.
We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world.
How poor are they that have not patience! What wound did ever heal but by degrees?
Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments but let us have patience and we soon shall see them in their proper figures.
Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.
For anything worth having one must pay the price and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice - no paper currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service.
Abused patience turns to fury.
How many a man has thrown up his hands at a time when a little more effort, a little more patience would have achieved success.
