Let down your bucket where you are.
Booker T. Washington (1856 - 1915)
Contributed by: Zaady
Success is not measured by the heights one attains, but by the obstacles one overcomes in its attainment.
Don't ever let them pull you down so low as to hate them.
I will permit no man to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him.
No race can prosper till it learns that there is as much dignity in tilling a field as in writing a poem.
You can't hold a man down without staying down with him.

I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.
Character is power.
No man who continues to add something to the material, intellectual and moral well-being of the place in which he lives is left long without proper reward.
Excellence is to do a common thing in an uncommon way.
