Ideals are like stars; you will not succeed in touching them with your hands, but like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them, you reach your destiny.
If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut.
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style.
M. H. Alderson
If at first you don't succeed; you are running about average.
If constructive thoughts are planted positive outcomes will be the result. Plant the seeds of failure and failure will follow.
If you believe in what you are doing, then let nothing hold you up in your work. Much of the best work of the world has been done against seeming impossibilities. The thing is to get the work done.
William Arthur Ward
If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.
Russell L. Mason
If you can lay your head on your pillow each night knowing you gave hundred per cent to your day, success will find you.
Henry David Thoreau
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.
