My dear friend, clear your mind of cant.
One person with a belief is equal to a force of ninety-nine who have only interests.
Don't just read the easy stuff. You may be entertained by it, but you will never grow from it.
The first rule is to keep an untroubled spirit. The second is to look things in the face and know them for what they are.
I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.
Be yourself, let you come through.
I dream my painting and I paint my dream.
If you can dream it, you can do it.
You'll never do a whole lot unless you're brave enough to try.
Do not count your chickens before they are hatched.
If you put off everything till you're sure of it, you'll never get anything done.
I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.
Get up, stand up, Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, Don't give up the fight.
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
I trust that everything happens for a reason, even if we are not wise enough to see it.
Treat a work of art like a prince. Let it speak to you first.
Argue not concerning God,re-examine all that you have been told at church or school or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your soul
If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.
The great secret of true success, of true happiness, is this: the man or woman who asks for no return, the perfectly unselfish person, is the most successful.
You see things; you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say 'Why not?
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.
