Try not to become a man of success but a man of value
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.
Inspiration and genius--one and the same.
To find what you seek in the road of life, the best proverb of all is that which says: Leave no stone unturned.
Do we not all agree to call rapid thought and noble impulse by the name of inspiration?
If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.
If you would create something, you must be something.
Every artist was first an amateur.
No great man ever complains of want of opportunities.
Men do less than they ought, unless they do all they can.
Let thy words be few. Ecclesiastes 5:2 from Words of Wisdom
Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.
The power of imagination makes us infinite.
First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.
There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
The secret to having a good marriage is to understand that marriage must be total, it must be permanent, and it must be equal.
Marriage, ultimately, is the practice of becoming passionate friends.
What counts in making a happy marriageis not so much how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility.
Grow old along with me. The best is yet to be.
One advantage of marriage, it seems to me, is that when you fall out of love with each other, it keeps you together until maybe you fall in love again.
We learn our virtues from our friends who love us; our faults from the enemy who hates us. We cannot easily discover our real character from a friend. He is a mirror, on which the warmth of our breath impedes the clearness of the reflection.
Don't be dismayed by good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends.
Every man should keep a fair-sized cemetery in which to bury the faults of his friends.
Be civil to all; sociable to many; familiar with few; friend to one; enemy to none.
Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.
Take the time today to tell your friends the difference they have made in your life.
The only service a friend can really render is to keep up your courage by holding up to you a mirror in which you can see a noble image of yourself.
It's an incredibly liberating thing when you stop worrying about what other people think about you. Now I just need me to love me and, as a result, I'm a much better friend, girlfriend, sister, aunt, everything.
Your friends will know you better in the first minute you meet than your acquaintances will know you in a thousand years.
To be a friend means encourage strengths in others and accepting their weaknesses; in other words, accepting them for who they are.
The best looking-glass is the eyes of a friend.
We are all motivated by a keen desire for praise, and the better a man is, the more he is inspired to glory.
Along with success comes a reputation for wisdom.
They can because they think they can.
Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.
Keep steadily before you the fact that all true success depends at last upon yourself.
Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.
A failure is a man who has blundered, but is not able to cash in on the experience.
There is only one success--to be able to spend your life in your own way.
The greatest results in life are usually attained by simple means and the exercise of ordinary qualities. These may for the most part be summed in these two: common-sense and perseverance.
Failures do what is tension relieving, while winners do what is goal achieving.
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure--which is: Try to please everybody.
Success does not consist in never making blunders, but in never making the same one a second time.
The secret of success in life is for a man to be ready for his opportunity when it comes.
Success is the good fortune that comes from aspiration, desperation, perspiration and inspiration.
If you wish success in life, make perseverance your bosom friend, experience your wise counselor, caution your elder brother, and hope your guardian genius.
Impatience never commanded success.
The talent of success is nothing more than doing what you can do, well.
To climb steep hills requires a slow pace at first.
The man who makes a success of an important venture never wails for the crowd. He strikes out for himself. It takes nerve, it takes a great lot of grit; but the man that succeeds has both. Anyone can fail. The public admires the man who has enough confidence in himself to take a chance. These chances are the main things after all. The man who tries to succeed must expect to be criticized. Nothing important was ever done but the greater number consulted previously doubted the possibility. Success is the accomplishment of that which most people think can't be done.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no use being a damn fool about it.
The more difficulties one has to encounter, within and without, the more significant and the higher in inspiration his life will be.
Life has no smooth road for any of us; and in the bracing atmosphere of a high aim the very roughness stimulates the climber to steadier steps, till the legend, over steep ways to the stars, fulfills itself.
Men's best successes come after their disappointments.
It's a sign of mediocrity when you demonstrate gratitude with moderation.
Grief is the agony of an instant, the indulgence of grief the blunder of a life.
Habit is habit and not to be flung out of the window by any man, but coaxed downstairs a step at a time.
The friendship that can cease has never been real.
Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory.
The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you're willing to work.
Misfortune shows those who are not really friends.
You must give some time to your fellow men. Even if it's a little thing, do something for others - something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it.
In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it.
Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, inasmuch as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and every fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterwards carefully avoid.
To err is human; to forgive, infrequent.
Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.
To have respect for ourselves guides our morals; and to have a deference for others governs our manners.
Every sweet has its sour; every evil its good.
Experience teaches slowly and at the cost of mistakes.
Rudeness is the weak man's imitation of strength.
Evil deeds do not prosper; the slow man catches up with the swift.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
Reveal not every secret you have to a friend, for how can you tell but that friend may hereafter become an enemy. And bring not all mischief you are able to upon an enemy, for he may one day become your friend.
Unless man is committed to the belief that all mankind are his brothers, then he labors in vain and hypocritically in the vineyards of equality.
What is the first business of one who practices philosophy? To get rid of self-conceit. For it is impossible for anyone to begin to learn that which he thinks he already knows.
There are admirable potentialities in every human being. Believe in your strength and your youth. Learn to repeat endlessly to yourself, It all depends on me.
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Civilization is a method of living, an attitude of equal respect for all men.
The freethinking of one age is the common sense of the next.
The secret of being a bore is to tell everything.
Work and acquire, and thou hast chained the wheel of Chance.
Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
Choose rather to be strong of soul than strong of body.
Never read a book through merely because you have begun it.
Anger makes dull men witty, but it keeps them poor.
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.
Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly.
I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts.
I'm very pleased with each advancing year. It stems back to when I was forty. I was a bit upset about reaching that milestone, but an older friend consoled me. 'Don't complain about growing old - many, many people do not have that privilege.
One's first step in wisdom is to question everything - and one's last is to come to terms with everything.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
What's money? A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do.
Whenever evil befalls us, we ought to ask ourselves, after the first suffering, how we can turn it into good. So shall we take occasion, from one bitter root, to raise perhaps many flowers.
If a man insisted always on being serious, and never allowed himself a bit of fun and relaxation, he would go mad or become unstable without knowing it.
Risk! Risk anything! Care no more for the opinions of others, for those voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.
If you reveal your secrets to the wind you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees.
One person with a belief is equal to a force of 99 who have only interests.
Nothing is permanent in this wicked world - not even our troubles.
The policy of being too cautious is the greatest risk of all.
Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them - every day begin the task anew.
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood...Make big plans, aim high in hope and work.

The supreme object of life is to live. Few people live. It is true life only to realize one's own perfection to make one's every dream a reality
A goal is a dream with a deadline
Love is an attempt to change a piece of a dream world into reality
Dream what you want to dream go where you want to go be what you want to be because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do

Music expresses that which can not be said and on which it is impossible to be silent
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe

Music has a power of forming the character and should therefore be introduced into the education of the young

The more we are filled with thoughts of lust the less we find true romantic love
In real love you want the other persons good. In romantic love you want the other person
Love at first sight I absolutely believe in it You've got to keep the faith. Who doesnt like the idea that you could see someone tomorrow and she could be the love of your life It's very romantic
