A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on ability, achievement, men, and power

What a great discrepancy there is between men and the results they achieve! It is due to the difference in their power of calling together all the rays of their ability and concentrating them upon one point.

A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on efficiency, health, idealism, life, success, thought, and vision

We lift ourselves by our thought, we climb upon our vision of ourselves. If you want to enlarge your life, you must first enlarge your thought of it and of yourself. Hold the ideal of yourself as you long to be, always, everywhere - your ideal of what you long to attain - the ideal of health, efficiency, success.

A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on contentment, effort, excellence, justice, life, mediocrity, people, quality, satisfaction, and work

People who have accomplished work worthwhile have had a very high sense of the way to do things. They have not been content with mediocrity. They have not confined themselves to the beaten tracks; they have never been satisfied to do things just as others so them, but always a little better. They always pushed things that came to their hands a little higher up, this little farther on, that counts in the quality of life's work. It is constant effort to be first-class in everything one attempts that conquers the heights of excellence.
