Give me the clear blue sky over my head, and the green turf beneath my feet, a winding road before me, and a three hours' march do dinner-and then to thinking!

A Quote by Walt Whitman on beginning, clarity, death, joy, life, and soul

Joy, shipmate, joy! (Pleased to my soul at death I cry), Our life is closed, our life begins, The long, long anchorage we leave, The ship is clear at last, she leaps! She swiftly courses from the shore, Joy, shipmate, joy!

A Quote by Dr. W. Edwards Deming on aim, clarity, future, judgment, life, planning, and value

It is important that an aim never be defined in terms of activity or methods. It must always relate directly to how life is better for everyone. . . . The aim of the system must be clear to everyone in the system. The aim must include plans for the future. The aim is a value judgment.

A Quote by W. Clement Stone on achievement, adversity, clarity, desires, goals, individuality, learning, mind, problems, time, trouble, and words

All personal achievement starts in the mind of the individual. Your personal achievement starts in your mind. the first step is to know exactly what your problem, goal or desire is. If you're not clear about this, then write it down, and rewrite it until the words express precisely what you are after. Every disadvantage has an equivalent advantage - if you'll take the trouble to find it. Learn to do that and you'll kick the stuffing out of adversity every time.

W. Clement Stone (1902 -)
