Here is a test to find out whether your mission in life is complete. If you’re alive, it isn’t.
—Richard Bach (American Novelist)
Whatever we expect with confidence becomes our own self-fulfilling prophecy.
—Brian Tracy (American Author)
Believe those who are seeking the truth; doubt those who find it.
—Andre Gide (French Novelist)
There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us, that it ill behooves any of us to find fault with the rest of us.
You cannot teach a man anything, you can only help him to find it within himself.
—Galileo Galilei (Italian Astronomer)
We will not be measured by our aspirations, we will be measured by our actions.
Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (American Philosopher)
We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act.
—Swami Vivekananda (Indian Hindu Mystic)
