A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on animals, cowardice, and obstacles

Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them . . . they are liable to spring upon you; but when you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight.

A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on character, fame, friendship, glory, influence, life, magic, money, nature, plants, power, and wealth

Who can estimate the real wealth that inheres in a fine character. . . . How base and mean money and huge estates look in comparison. All other things fade before it. Its touch is like magic to win friendship, influence, power. Can you afford to chill, to discourage, to crush out of your life this sweet, sensitive plant, which would flower in your nature and give added glory to your life, for the sake of a few dollars, a little questionable fame?

A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on approval, effort, happiness, power, and success

When a man feels throbbing within him, the power to do what he undertakes as well as it can possibly be done, and all of his faculties say "amen" to what he is doing, and give their unqualified approval to his efforts, - this is happiness, this is success.
