If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self.
If you have a positive attitude and constantly strive to give your best effort, eventually you will overcome your immediate problems and find you are ready for greater challenges.
If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence, you have won even before you have started.
Mary Kay Ash
If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can't, you're right.
Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.
Leonardo Da Vinci

It doesn't matter if you try and try and try again, and fail. It does matter if you try and fail, and fail to try again.
It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
It is of no consequence of what parents a man is born, as long as he be a man of merit.
It sometimes seems that we have only to love a thing greatly to get it.
