day

A Quote by William Feather on day, failure, good, health, men, problems, service, strength, success, work, and world

Deliver me from all evildoers that talk nothing but sickness and failure. Grant me the companionship of men who think success and men who work for it. Loan me associates who cheerfully face the problems of a day and try hard to overcome them. Relieve me of all cynics and critics. Give me good health and the strength to be of real service to the world, and I'll get all that's good for me, and will what's left to those who want it.

A Quote by William Faulkner on day, life, and success

Really the writer doesn't want success. . . . He knows he has a short span of life, that the day will come when he must pass through the wall of oblivion, and he wants to leave a scratch on that wall - Kilroy was here - that somebody a hundred, or a thousand years later will see.

A Quote by William Ernest Henley on day, death, heart, quiet, and serenity

So be my passing! My task accomplished and the long day done, My wages taken, and in my heart Some late lark singing, Let me be gathered in the quiet west, The sundown splendid and serene, Death.

A Quote by William E. Holler on achievement, day, mind, play, time, and work

You can do what you want to do, accomplish what you want to accomplish, attain any reasonable objective you may have in mind. . . Not all of a sudden, perhaps, not in one swift and sweeping act of achievement.... But you can do it gradually-day by day and play by play-if you want to do it, if you will to do it, if you work to do it, over a sufficiently long period of time.

William E. Holler

Stir the mixture well Lest it prove inferior, Then put half a drop Into Lake Superior. Every other day Take a drop in water, You'll be better soon Or at least you oughter.

The unpurged images of day recede; The Emperor's drunken soldiery are abed; Night resonance recedes, night-walkers' song After great cathedral gong.

A Quote by William Butler Yeats on day, dreams, endurance, love, and pleasure

Everything that man esteems Endures a moment or a day. Love's pleasure drives his love away, The painter's brush consumes his dreams.
