“Until one is committed there is always hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. The moment that one definitely commits oneself, the providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events and issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic. Begin it NOW!
“Nothing in the world can take away the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not. The world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
- Calvin Coolidge
“Everything comes if a man will only wait. I have brought myself by long meditation (to the belief) that a human being with a subtle purpose must accomplish it, and that nothing can resist a will that will stay in existence for its fulfillment.”- Disraeli
“A man is what he thinks about all day long.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitude of mind. We need only to act as if the thing in question were real and it will become infallibly real by growing in such connection with life that it will become real. It will become so knit with habit and emotion that our interest in it be that which characterizes belief. If you only care enough for a result you will almost certainly attain it. If you wish to be rich, you will be rich. If you wish to be learned, you will be learned. If you wish to be good, you will be good. Only then you must really wish them and wish them exclusively and not wish, at the same time, one-hundred other incompatible things just as strong.”
“If you can believe all things are possible to him who believes.”
- The Bible (Mark 9:23)
“Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good We might often win by not
fearing to attempt.”- William Shakespeare
"The more extensive a man's knowledge of what has been done, the greater
will be his power of knowing what to do."
- Benjamin Disraeli
"And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the spirit."- King James Bible
"We know what we are, but know not what we may be."
- William Shakespeare
"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts..."
- William Shakespeare, "As You Like It", Act 2 scene 7
"Arise, Go Forth, and Conquer."
- Lord Alfred Tennyson
"We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are."
