George Bernard Shaw
You see things; and you say "Why?" But I dream things that never were; and I say "Why not?"
It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.
Alphonse de Lamartine
There is a woman at the beginning of all great things.
Henry David Thoreau
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.
Stephen R. Covey
Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.
Nothing is more sad than the death of an illusion.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It was a high counsel that I once heard given to a young person, "Always do what you are afraid to do."
One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.
Whenever I hear, "It can't be done," I know I'm close to success.
Your own words are the bricks and mortar of the dreams you want to realize. Your words are the greatest power you have. The words you choose and the use establish the life you experience.
When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murders, and for a time they may seem invincible, but in the end they always fall, always.
We've removed the ceiling above our dreams. There are no more impossible dreams.
Fosdick, Harry Emerson
The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can't be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.
The fight is won or lost far away from the witnesses, behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road; long before I dance under those lights.
Dreams come true; without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.
Robert H. Schuller
Every burden is a blessing.
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure...than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
A catherdral, a wave of storm, a dancer's leap, never turn out to be as high as we had hoped.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
