Pearl S. Buck
I don't wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has got to get down to work.
I have always admired the ability to bite off more than one can chew and then chew it.
I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot... and missed. And I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why... I succeed.
I kept six honest serving men. They taught me all I knew. Their names are What and Why and When and How and Where and Who.
Henry Ward Beecher
I never knew an early-rising, hard-working, prudent man, careful of his earnings, and strictly honest who complained of bad luck.
I will! I am! I can! I will actualize my dream. I will press ahead. I will settle down and see it through. I will solve the problems. I will pay the price. I will never walk away from my dream until I see my dream walk away: Alert! Alive! Achieved!
I would rather be able to appreciate things I can not have than to have things I am not able to appreciate.
If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less but to dream more, to dream all the time.
Roger Ward Babson
If things are not going well with you, begin your effort at correcting the situation by carefully examining the service you are rendering, and especially the spirit in which you are rendering it.
