Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing.
If A is success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut
The ideals which have lighted me on my way and time after time given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. . . . The ordinary objects of human endeavour -- property, outward success, luxury -- have always seemed to me contemptible.
Yesterday I dared to struggle. Today I dare to win.
Bertolt Brescht (1898 - 1956)
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody
Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
