Never complain and never explain.
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.
Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.
To be a good loser is to learn how to win.
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
If you're going through hell, keep going.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
Faith is spiritualized imagination.
The soul without imagination is what an observatory would be without a telescope.
Every charitable act is a stepping stone toward heaven.
Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.
Tears are often the telescope by which men see far into heaven.
Good nature is worth more than knowledge, more than money, more than honor, to the persons who possess it.
The advertisements in a newspaper are more full knowledge in respect to what is going on in a state or community than the editorial columns are.
Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody expects of you. Never excuse yourself.
We never know the love of a parent till we become parents ourselves.
There is no friendship, no love, like that of the parent for the child.
