The principles you live by create the world you live in ; if you change the principles you live by, you will change your world. -
Where there's life, there's hope.
To love what you do and feel that it matters, how on earth could anything be more fun !
What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail ?

When I asked god for strength
He gave me difficult situations to face
When I asked god for brain & brawn
He gave me puzzles in life to solve
When I asked god for happiness
He showed me some unhappy people
When I asked god for wealth
He showed me how to work hard
When I asked god for favors
He showed me opportunities to work hard
When I asked god for peace
He showed me how to help others
God gave me nothing I wanted
He gave me everything I needed
In life you need either inspiration or desperation.
Many great ideas go unexecuted, and many great executioners are without ideas. One without the other is worthless.
Life without love is like a tree. Without blossom and fruit.
Inspiration and genius -- one and the same.
Life can be pulled by goals just as surely as it can be pushed by drives.
Some make it happen, some watch it happen, and some say, What happened ?
What really matters is what you do with what you have.

Men who have attained things worth having in this world have worked while others idled, have persevered while others gave up in despair, have practiced early in life the valuable habits of self-denial, industry, and singleness of purpose. As a result, they enjoy in later life the success so often erroneously attributed to good luck.
Do not wait for ideal circumstances, they will never come, nor for the best opportunities.

Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the 'someday I'll' philosophy.
The United States, and other advanced nations, will someday be able to produce instruments of death so terrible the world will be in abject terror of itself and its ability to end civilization... . Such war-making weapons should be developed - but only for purposes of discovery and experimentation
To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable
The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one. -
Go ahead, make my day.

He who has health has hope, and he who has hope has everything.
Dedicate yourself to the good you deserve and desire for yourself. Give yourself peace of mind. You deserve to be happy. You deserve delight.
Mark Victor Hansen
Badges ? We ain't got no badges ! We don't need no badges ! I don't have to show you any stinking badges !
Gold Hat, The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre (1948)
Never fear the want of business. A man who qualifies himself well for his calling, never fails of employment.
I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

When you drop a pebble into a pool of water, the pebble starts a series of ripples that expand until they encompass the whole pool. This is exactly what will happen when I give my ideas a definite plan of action. Right now I can project my thoughts into the future. I can see ahead of me. I dream, I am not easily discouraged, readily visualize myself as overcoming obstacles, winning out over setbacks, achieving impossible objectives.
Four steps to achievement : plan purposely, prepare prayerfully, proceed positively, pursue persistently.
William Arthur Ward
Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart.

People who exercise their embryonic freedom day after day, little by little, expand that freedom. People who do not will find that it withers until they are literally 'being lived'. They are acting out scripts written by parents, associates and society.
It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer.
People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve outstanding success because they don't know when to quit. Most men succeed because they are determined to.
To laugh often and love much, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to give one's self, this is to have succeeded.

He who never made a mistake never made a discovery.
Love works a different way in different minds, the fool it enlightens and the wise it blinds.
Happiness is where we find it, but rarely where we seek it.
