The men who have succeeded are men who have chosen one line and stuck to it.
A word, a look, an accent, may affect the destiny not only of individuals, but of nations. He is a bold man who calls anything a trifle.
The man who acquires the ability to take full possession of his own mind may take possession of anything else to which he is justly entitled.
No man becomes rich unless he enriches others.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it
all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
The average person puts only 25% of his energy and ability into his work. The world takes off its hat to those who put in more than 50% of their capacity, and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100%.
People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity.
As I grew older, I pay less attention to
what men say, I just watch what they do.
