Talent is God given--Be Humble.
Fame is man given-- Be Thankful.
Conceit is self given --Be Careful.
Do what you can , with what you have , with where you are.
Publilius Syrus Maxim
No one knows what he can do till he tries.
There is nothing so easy but that it becomes difficult when you do it reluctantly.
A wise man turns chance into good fortune.
Prosperity is a great teacher;
adversity is a greater.
No pains, no palm;
no thorns, no throne;
no gall , no glory;
no cross, no crown.
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over... if you just sit there.
Opportunity rarely knocks on your door.
Knock rather on opportunity's door if you ardently wish to enter.
It's not whether you get knocked down.
...It's whether you get up again.
An optimist sees an opportunity in every calamity;
a pessimist sees a calamity in every opportunity.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
The will to do springs from the knowledge that we can do.
Few things are impossible to diligence and skill.
Lost time is never found again.
No problem can stand the assault of sustained thinking.
Victory belongs to the most persevering.
Leave no stone unturned.
Norman Vincent Peale
Plan your work for today and every day;
then work your plan.
Failure is only the opportunity to more intelligently begin again.
I start where the last man left off.
What the mind of man can conceive and believe,
the mind of a man can achieve.
Plough deep while sluggards sleep.
Henry David Thoreau
In the lone run men hit only what they aim at.
Luck is not chance...
Fortune's expensive smile is earned.
Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
The great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.
I will prepare and some day my chance will come.
Whether you think you can or think you can't -- you are right.
Where there's a will there's a way.
There is no failure excepting no longer trying.
Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.
