I confess that in 1901 I said to my brother Orville that man would not fly for fifty years.
Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft!
The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall.
What I stand for is what I stand on.
Life is entrusted to man as a treasure which must not be squandered, as a talent which must be used well.
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds will continue in others.
People don't realize how a man's whole life can be changed by one book.
The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
It's not whether you got knocked down; it's whether you get back up.
Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools.
Go then if you must, but remember, no matter how foolish your deeds, those who love you will love you still.
Get up, stand up, Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, Don't give up the fight.
Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water.
If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.
I discover myself on the verge of a usual mistake.
They alone live, who live for others.
Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
I not only use all the brains that I have, but all that I can borrow.
I believe that every person is born with talent.
Give yourself something to work toward - constantly.
