''Where there is a will there is a way.'' is an old true saying. He who resolves upon doing a thing, by that very resolution often scales the barriers to it, and secures its achievement. To think we are able, is almost to be so — to determine upon attainment is frequently attainment itself.
A man may fulfill the object of his existence by asking a question he cannot answer, and attempting a task he cannot achieve.
Accomplishment is easiest when we work the hardest, and it is hardest when we work the easiest.
Death comes to all But great achievements build a monument which shall endure until the sun grows cold.
Dedicate yourself to the good you deserve and desire for yourself. Give yourself peace of mind. You deserve to be happy. You deserve delight.
Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and important, although difficult, is the highroad to pride, self-esteem, and personal satisfaction.
Do not be desirous of having things done quickly. Do not look at small advantages. Desire to have things done quickly prevents their being done thoroughly. Looking at small advantages prevents great affairs from being accomplished.
Don't mistake activity for achievement.
Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.
Every great achievement is the victory of a flaming heart.
Every man who is high up loves to think that he has done it all himself; and the wife smiles, and lets it go at that.
Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
For a man to achieve all that is demanded of him he must regard himself as greater than he is.
For we must consider that we shall be a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us, so that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to withdraw His present help from us, we shall be made a story and a byword through the world.
For what is the best choice, for each individual is the highest it is possible for him to achieve.
God will not look you over for medal, degrees or diplomas, but for scars.
Great things are not accomplished by those who yield to trends and fads and popular opinion.
Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.
Having once decided to achieve a certain task, achieve it at all costs of tedium and distaste. The gain in self confidence of having accomplished a tiresome labor is immense.
