No man ever achieved worth-while success who did not, at one time or other, find himself with at least one foot hanging well over the brink of failure.

When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.
There would be no advantage to be gained by sowing a field of wheat if the harvest did not return more than was sown.
The battle is all over except the "shouting" when one knows what is wanted and has made up his mind to get it, whatever the price may be.
The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat.
Through some strange and powerful principle of "mental chemistry" which she has never divulged, nature wraps up in the impulse of strong desire, "that something" which recognizes no such word as "impossible," and accepts no such reality as failure.
When your desires are strong enough you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve.
Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true.
Education comes from within; you get it by struggle and effort and thought.
Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.
