Ability is a poor man’s wealth.

Make everyday your masterpiece.

You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.

Don’t measure yourself by what you have accomplished but by what you should have accomplished with your ability.

Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.

The worst thing about new books is that they keep us from reading the old ones.

Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.

Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.

You can’t let praise or criticism get to you. It’s a weakness to get caught up in either one.

It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.

If you’re not making mistakes then you’re not doing anything. I’m positive that a doer makes mistakes.

Winning takes talent; to repeat takes character.
