success

A Quote by Bernard Mannes Baruch on death, horses, learning, philosophy, and success

A man sentenced to death obtained a reprieve by assuring the king he would teach his majesty's horse to fly within the year - on the condition that if he didn't succeed, he would be put to death at the end of the year. "Within a year," the man explained later, "the king may die, or I may die, or the horse may die. Furthermore, in a year, who knows? Maybe the horse will learn to fly." My philosophy is like that man's. I take the long-range view.

A Quote by Benjamin Franklin on ancestry, blessings, books, day, execution, god, hope, life, posterity, progress, and success

The Book: "So he settled on a method to help him succeed in his quest. He devised a little book and set it up in such a way that he could examine himself and mark his progress at the end of each day." "I entered upon the execution of this plan for self-examination and continued it, with occasional intermission, but I always carried my little book with me. . . ." "And it may be well my posterity should be informed that to this little artifice with the blessing of God, their ancestor owed the constant felicity of his life down to his seventy-ninth year in which this is written. . . . I hope, therefore, that some of my descendants may follow the example and reap the benefits."

A Quote by Benjamin Franklin on belief, friendship, god, imagination, labor, life, men, needs, politics, sacred, success, time, and truth

And have we now forgotten that powerful Friend? Or do we imagine we no longer need His assistance? I have lived a long time; and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth: that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that 'except the Lord build the House, they labor in vain that build it.' I firmly believe this; and I also believe that, without His concurring aid, we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel.

A Quote by Benjamin F. Fairless on achievement, america, belief, careers, country, fulfillment, justice, love, mind, opportunity, and success

What is the recipe for successful achievement? To my mind there are just four essential ingredients: Choose a career you love . . . Give it the best there is in you . . . Seize your opportunities And be a member of the team. In no country but America, I believe, is it possible to fulfill all four of these requirements.
