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.
Happiness doesn't depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude.
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.
If you want to conquer fear, don't sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
Feeling sorry for yourself, and your present condition, is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have.
Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.
Today is life-the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto.
People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.
When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but creatures of emotion.
