You win some, you lose some, let Karma takes its course.
Never try to ruin someone…That’s bad Karma… Let them ruin themselves, the victory is that much sweeter. You reap what you sow!
My happiness is not the means to any end. It is the end. It is its own goal. It is its own purpose.
The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity.
A desire presupposes the possibility of action to achieve it; action presupposes a goal which is worth achieving.
The greatest victory has been to be able to live with myself, to accept my shortcomings… I’m a long way from the human being I’d like to be. But I’ve decided I’m not so bad after all.
It is too much to hope that I shall keep up my success. I don’t ask for that. All I shall do is my best – and hope.
Success is like reaching an important birthday and finding you’re exactly the same.
Our aim may be as high as the endless sky, but we should have a resolve in our minds to walk ahead, hand-in-hand for victory will be ours.
My poetry is a declaration of war, not an exordium to defeat. It is not the defeated soldier’s drumbeat of despair, but the fighting warrior’s will to win. It is not the de- spirited voice of dejection but the stirring shout of victory.
We can come to look upon the deaths of our enemies with as much regret as we feel for those of our friends, namely, when we miss their existence as witnesses to our success.
You must play boldly to win.
To hope is to wait for things to come to you. To dream is part of the process of setting goals and then striving to achieve them. You first must dream of doing things before you can do them.
I never quit trying. I never felt that I didn’t have a chance to win.
The road to success is always under construction.
I can’t be casual about losing. I always think I have a chance to win until winning is absolutely impossible.
Success in golf depends less on strength of body than upon strength of mind and character.
Every day I play golf, that’s my goal. To break 70 the other way. To shoot 70 or better.
To the victors belong the spoils.
I weep for the liberty of my country when I see at this early day of its successful experiment that corruption has been imputed to many members of the House of Representatives, and the rights of the people have been bartered for promises of office.
