Success is going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.  

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.

I don’t think much of a man who is not wiser today then he was yesterday.

A man watches his pear tree, day after day, impatient for the ripening of the fruit. Let him attempt to force the process, and he may spoil both the fruit and tree. But let him patiently wait, and the ripe pear, at length, falls into his lap.

 

If you would win a man to your cause first convince him that you are his sincere friend.

Nearly all men can stand adversity but if you want to test a man’s character give him power.

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.

 


And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.

Don’t worry when you are not recognized, but strive to be worthy of recognition.
