A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on cheerfulness, earth, and nature

How true it is that, if we are cheerful and contented, all nature smiles, the air seems more balmy, the sky clearer, the earth has a brighter green. . . the flowers are more fragrant. . . and the sun, moon, and stars all appear more beautiful, and seem to rejoice with us.

A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on ambition, angels, character, discipline, fame, humility, nature, possibility, pride, and wealth

The sculptor will chip off all unnecessary material to set free the angel. Nature will chip and pound us remorselessly to bring out our possibilities. She will strip us of wealth, humble our pride, humiliate our ambition, let us down from the ladder of fame, will discipline us in a thousand ways, if she can develop a little character. Everything must give way to that. Wealth is nothing, position is nothing, fame is nothing, manhood is everything.

A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on aim, ideas, men, purpose, and success

The giants of the race have been men of concentration, who have struck sledge-hammer blows in one place until they have accomplished their purpose. The successful men of today are men of one overmastering idea, one unwavering aim, men of single and intense purpose.

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.
