Think well before you speak because your words may plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of some other person.
The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.
The majority of men meet with failure, because of their lack of PERSISTENCE in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail.
It is better to fail in originality, than to succeed in imitation. He who has never failed somewhere, that man can not be great. Failure is the true test of greatness.
If you put your energy into thinking about how much the fall would hurt, you’re already halfway down.
I must be taken as I have been made. The success is not mine, the failure is not mine, but the two together make me.
