There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them
Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.
Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
You must learn from your past mistakes, but not lean on your past successes.
Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can't buy more hours. Scientists can't invent new minutes. And you can't save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you've wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.
You must stick to your conviction, but be ready to abandon your assumptions.
Life is not accountable to us. We are accountable to life.
That which you create in beauty and goodness and truth lives on for all time to come. Don't spend your life accumulating material objects that will only turn to dust and ashes.
You must accept responsibility for your actions, but not the credit for your achievements.
The most splendid achievement of all is the constant striving to surpass yourself and to be worthy of your own approval.
The winner's edge is not in a gifted birth, a high IQ, or in talent. The winner's edge is all in the attitude, not aptitude. Attitude is the criterion for success.
Time and health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.
As long as we are persistence in our pursuit of our deepest destiny, we will continue to grow. We cannot choose the day or time when we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time.
I had the blues because I had no shoes until upon the street, I met a man who had no feet.
You must consider the bottom line, but make it integrity before profits.
Winners have the ability to step back from the canvas of their lives like an artist gaining perspective. They make their lives a work of art - an individual masterpiece.
A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.
One characteristic of winners is they always look upon themselves as a do it yourself project.
