If you can dream it, then you can achieve it. You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.
The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are: Hard work, Stick-to-itiveness, and Common sense.
The opinion of the world does not affect me. I have placed as the real values in my life what follows when I am dead.
First, have a definite, clear practical ideal; a goal, an objective. Second, have the necessary means to achieve your ends; wisdom, money, materials, and methods. Third, adjust all your means to that end.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
To be successful you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve. And once you get to your highest level, then you have to be unselfish. Stay reachable. Stay in touch. Don’t isolate.
Only by strict specialization can the scientific worker become fully conscious, for once and perhaps never again in his lifetime, that he has achieved something that will endure. A really definitive and good accomplishment is today always a specialized accomplishment.
Life is not the means for the achievement of an esthetic ideal of perfection; on the contrary, the work is an ethical symbol of life.
