There is no failure for the man who realizes his power, who never knows when he is beaten; there is no failure for the determined endeavor; the unconquerable will. There is no failure for the man who gets up every time he falls, who rebounds like a rubber ball, who persists when everyone else gives up, who pushes on when everyone else turns back.
Obstacles will look large or small to you according to whether you are large or small.
There can be no great courage where there is no confidence or assurance, and half the battle is in the conviction that we can do what we undertake.
Opportunities? They are all around us. There is power lying latent everywhere waiting for the observant eye to discover it.
There are powers inside of you which, if you could discover and use, would make of you everything you ever dreamed or imagined you could become.
The size of your accomplishments, the quality of your achievement, will depend very largely on how big a man you see in yourself, what sort of image you get of your possible self, yourself at your best.
The lack of opportunity is ever the excuse of a weak, vacillating mind. Opportunities! Every life is full of them. Every newspaper article is an opportunity. Every client is an opportunity. Every sermon is an opportunity. Every business transaction is an opportunity: an opportunity to be polite, an opportunity to be manly, an opportunity to be honest, an opportunity to make friends.
The hand cannot reach higher than does the heart.
The greatest trouble with most of us is that our demands upon ourselves are so feeble, the call upon the great within us so weak and intermittent that it makes no impression upon the creative energies; it lacks the force that transmutes desires into realities.
The greatest thing a man can do in this world is to make the most possible out of the stuff that has been given him. This is success, and there is no other.
