Every great man has become great, every successful man has succeeded, in proportion as he has confined his powers to one particular channel.
Orison Swett Marden (1850 - 1924)

We must give more in order to get more. It is the generous giving of ourselves that produces the generous harvest.
Every germ of goodness will at last struggle into bloom and fruitage . . . true success follows every right step.
The best thing about giving of ourselves is that what we get is always better than what we give. The reaction is greater than the action.
We fail to see that we can control our own destiny; make ourselves do whatever is possible; make ourselves become whatever we long to be.
Be larger than your task.
This is the test of your manhood: How much is there left in you after you have lost everything outside of yourself?
There can be no failure to a man who has not lost his courage, his character, his self-respect, or his self-confidence. He is still a king.
Our destiny changes with our thought; we shall become what we wish to become, do what we wish to do, when our habitual thought corresponds with our desire.
Our thoughts and imaginations are the only real limits to our possibilities.
