Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can't practice any other virtue consistently.
Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.
Keep Going Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life. Keep going. Tough situations build strong people in the end.
Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.
Never lose hope. Storms make people stronger and never last forever.
The best way out is always through.
Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.
Energy and persistence conquer all things.
When the going gets tough, put one foot in front of the other and just keep going. Don’t give up.
You never know what's around the corner. It could be everything. Or it could be nothing. You keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day you look back and you've climbed a mountain.
It doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down. All that matters is you get up one more time than you were knocked down.
The one who falls and gets up is stronger than the one who never tried. Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.
Whether you like it or not, you are committed to the human endeavor. I cannot ally myself with such a purely negative goal as avoidance of suffering. Suffering is a chance you take by the fact of being alive.
...When you die, the energy that kept you alive filters into the people you loved. Did you know that? It's like a fire you've tended all your life, and the sparks are all scattered into the wind.... That's why we survive as long as we do, because the people who loved us keep us going.
The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are, first, hard work; second, stick-to-itiveness; third, common sense.
Keep a little fire burning; however small, however hidden.
One mistake does not have to rule a person's entire life.
The harder you fall, the heavier your heart; the heavier your heart, the stronger you climb; the stronger you climb, the higher your pedestal.
Don't ever give up. Don't ever give in. Don't ever stop trying. Don't ever sell out. And if you find yourself succumbing to one of the above for a brief moment, pick yourself up, brush yourself off, whisper a prayer, and start where you left off. But never, ever, ever give up.
If you're waiting until you feel talented enough to make it, you'll never make it.
