Our very business in life is not to get ahead of others ... But to get ahead of ourselves.
Thomas L. Monson
If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story.
Remember, people will judge you by your actions, not your intentions. You may have a heart of gold -- but so does a hard-boiled egg.
Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have anything in the beginning.
You're alive. Do something. Look. Listen. Chose. Act.
And in the end it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
All life is a chance. The person who goes farthest is the one who is willing to do and dare.
You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
It's not enough to be busy. The question is, what are we busy about?
Henry David Thoreau
Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
Demand the best from yourself, because others will demand the best from you... Successful people don't simply give a project hard work. They give it their best work.
