Remember, you may be older today than you have ever been before, but you are younger than you will ever be again!
– Barbara Johnson
The great thing in this world is not so much where we are, but in what direction we are moving.
– Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809 – 1894)
Success is sometimes just trying one more time. Twenty-three publishers rejected one children’s book. But the 24th publisher accepted it and the book sold six million copies. The author of that book was Dr. Seuss.
You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down.
Mary Pickford (1893-1979)
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has opened for us.
Helen Keller (1880-1968)
Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.
Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans.
That the moment one definitely commits oneself then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events from the decision raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamt would come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
– Goethe (1749-1832)
