The road to success is uphill, so don't expect to break any speed records. The only thing in life achieved without effort is FAILURE. Little people can have big dreams.

Blowing out somebody else's candle won't make yours shine any brighter. Many men spend their lives reasoning with the past, complaining about the present and trembling about the future. Man is the only member of the animal kingdom that apologizes, or needs to. A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them and strong enough to correct them. Our mistake is loving things and using people instead of loving people and using things. The value of the dollar will never drop as low as some people will stoop down to get it.

Other people determine you character by observing what you stand for, fall for and lie for. No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. Children need strength to lean on, a shoulder to cry on and an example to learn from. It is extremely difficult for a child to live right if he‟s never seen how it is done.

Every child has the right to be well fed and well led. A switch in time saves crime. Most juvenile delinquents are young people who have been given a free hand, but not in the proper place. Some parents bring their children up, others let them down. When Joseph stood naked on the auction block, The Lord called him PROSPEROUS Whiners are generally the product of sour grapes. Sometimes you can live it up for an evening and then have to live it down for the rest of your life. I do not invite defeat, accept defeat or submit to it. A failure is just a rehearsal for success. Try for perfection and be satisfied with the very best you can do. Pressure doesn't cause weakness, it only reveals it. I don't believe in Weak Ends just Long Starts. It is nice to be important, but it is far more important to be nice. You may be limited by time and distance, but never by imagination. Everybody is born an original, but most die a carbon copy.

If you get rid of the rubbish, you‟ll get rid of the rats. What one generation tolerates, the next generation accepts. Smooth seas don‟t make skillful sailors. People don‟t care what you know until they know how much you care.
