I'd rather be a failure at something I love than a success at something I hate.
Few men during their lifetime come anywhere near exhausting the resources dwelling in them. There are deep wells of strength that are never used.
Richard E. Byrd
The only time you can’t afford to fail is the last time you try.
The important thing is never to stop questioning.
In the middle of difficulty, lies opportunity.
One has really nothing in the world to fear.
becomes fearless when one understands the power of the soul.
Mohandas K. Gandhi
We do not see things as they are;
we see things as we are.
There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.
Don’t listen to those who say, “It’s not done that way.” Maybe it’s not, but maybe you’ll do it anyway.
Don’t listen to those who say, “You’re taking too big a chance.” Michelangelo would have painted
the Sisteen floor, and it would surely be rubbed out by today.
Most important, don’t listen when the little voice of fear inside you rears its ugly head and says,
“They’re all smarter than you out there. They’re more talented, they’re taller, blonder, prettier,
luckier and they have connections. . . .”
I firmly believe that if you follow a path that interests you, not to the exclusion of love,
sensitivity, and cooperation with others, but with the strength of conviction that you can move others
by your own efforts, and do not make success or failure the criteria by which you live,
the chances are you’ll be a person worthy of your own respect.
