A failure establishes only this, that our determination to succeed was not strong enough.
Christian Bovee (1820 - 1904)
Contributed by: Zaady
Example has more followers than reason. We unconsciously imitate what pleases us, and approximate to the characters we most admire. A generous habit of thought and action carries with it an incalculable influence.
Courage enlarges, cowardice diminishes resources. In desperate straits the fears of the timid aggravate the dangers that imperil the brave.
The small courtesies sweeten life; the greater ennoble it.
