Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
All endings are also beginnings. We just don’t know it at the time.
Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into the flames of achievement.
Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.

I don’t focus on what I’m up against. I focus on my goals and try to ignore the rest.
The successful warrior is the average man, but with laser-like focus.
If you don’t like the road you’re walking, pave another one.
When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy.” They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.
If you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.
Build your own dreams, or somebody else will pay you to build theirs.
