He who would accomplish little must sacrifice little; he who would achieve much must sacrifice much; he who would attain highly must sacrifice greatly.

Circumstances do not make the man, they reveal him.

You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.

To begin to think with purpose, is to enter the ranks of those strong ones who only recognize failure as one of the pathways to attainment.

All that you accomplish or fail to accomplish with your life is the direct result of your thoughts.
