* Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
* People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them.
George Bernard Shaw
* Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
* Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, "This is the real me," and when you have found that attitude, follow it.
* Experience is not what happens to a man, it is what a man does with what happens to him.
* What keeps so many people back is simply unwillingness to pay the price, to make the exertion, the effort to sacrifice their ease and comfort.
