We first make our habits, and then our habits make us.
What we actually learn, from any given set of circumstances, determines whether we become increasingly powerless or more powerful.
Dr. Samuel Johnson
When any fit of anxiety or gloominess or perversion of the mind lays hold upon you, make it a rule not to publish it by complaints but exert your whole care to hide it. By endeavoring to hide it, you will drive it away.
When firmness is sufficient, rashness is unnecessary.
When the character of a man is not clear to you, look at his friends.
When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost.
When you have a number of disagreeable duties to perform, always do the most disagreeable first.
Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you're right!
You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true. You may have to work for it, however.
You can finish school, and even make it easy but you never finish your education, and it's seldom easy.
