You have to make the rules, not follow them.
Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.
We're lost, but we're making good time
A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.
Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.
Life is entrusted to man as a treasure which must not be squandered, as a talent which must be used well.
Anything that makes weak - physically, intellectually and spiritually, reject it as poison.
I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.
It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
He that can have patience can have what he will.
You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do.
We need never be ashamed of our tears.
Go then if you must, but remember, no matter how foolish your deeds, those who love you will love you still.
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
Accept whatever comes to you woven in the pattern of your destiny, for what could more aptly fit your needs?
I work hard, and I do good, and I'm going to enjoy myself. I'm not going to let you restrict me.
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.
They deem me mad because I will not sell my days for gold; and I deem them mad because they think my days have a price.
Freedom and independence form my character.
Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.
