The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
The dog that trots about finds a bone.
The wise does at once what the fool does at last.
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
Only the educated are free.
If you're going through hell, keep going.
I feel beautiful when I'm at peace with myself. When I'm serene, when I'm a good person, when I've been considerate of others.
It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer.
It's a good thing that beauty is only skin deep, or I'd be rotten to the core.
Let's not be afraid to speak the common sense truth: you can't have high standards without good discipline.
Bear and endure: This sorrow will one day prove to be for your good.
My mother gave lots of good advice and had a lot to say. As you get older, you realize everything she said was true.
God is everywhere but He is most manifest in man. So serve man as God. That is as good as worshipping God.
There's no regret. You can't regret. I mean, I've felt regret but I've also refused to allow regret to sow a seed and live in me because I don't believe it. You feel it, it's like guilt, it's like jealousy, it's like all those horrible things. You've just got to snip them and get them out, because they're no good.
