I worship individuals for their highest possibilities as individuals and I loathe humanity for its failure to live up to these possibilities.
The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity.
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.
Don’t give up now. Chances are your best kiss, your hardest laugh, and your greatest day are still yet to come.
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.
I never quit trying. I never felt that I didn’t have a chance to win.
The road to success is always under construction.
Success in golf depends less on strength of body than upon strength of mind and character.
I’ve always made a total effort, even when the odds seemed entirely against me. I never quit trying; I never felt that I didn’t have a chance to win.
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.
What is courage? Courage is the willingness to risk failure…There is only one danger I find in life, and that, indeed, is a real one. You may take too many precautions.
Nobody adopts antisocial behavior unless they fear that they will fail if they remain on the social side of life.
No experience is a cause of success or failure. We do not suffer from the shock of our experiences, so-called trauma – but we make out of them just what suits our purposes.
It is the individual who is not interested in his fellow men who has the greatest difficulties in life and provides the greatest injury to others. It is from among such individuals that all human failures spring.
It is from among such individuals that all human failures spring.
All failures are so because they lack social interest.
All failures – neurotics, psychotics, criminals, drunkards, problem children, suicides, perverts, and prostitutes – are failures because they are lacking in social interest.
Always work hard, never give up, and fight until the end because it’s never really over until the whistle blows.
There’s really no secret to success. You make your own success.
