(1919-1990, American Publisher, Businessman) 

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.

 ~ William James ~

(1842-1910, American Psychologist, Professor, Author) 

Don't stop the plough to kill a mouse. Do not hinder important business for the discussion of a trifle.

 ~C. H. Spurgeon~ 

Let not your tongue say what your head may pay for.

 Italian proverb 

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.

 ~ Abraham Lincoln ~

(1809-1865, Sixteenth President of the USA) 

To try may be to die, but not to care is never to be born.

 ~William Redfield~ 

You have powers you never dreamed of. You can do things you never thought you could do. There are no limitations in what you can do except the limitations in your own mind as to what you cannot do. Don't think you cannot. Think you can.

 ~Darwin P. Kingsley~ 

Experience is not what happens to a man, it is what a man does with what happens to him.

 ~ Aldous Huxley ~

(1825-1895, British Biologist, Educator) 

Why, since the world began, the surest road to fame Has been the field where men unknown might win themselves a name; And well I know the brightest eyes have all the brighter shone, When looking at some warrior bold, returned from battle won.

 Charles Jefferys (1807 - 1865) 

Ordinary people believe only in the possible. Extraordinary people visualize not what is possible or probable, but rather what is impossible. And by visualizing the impossible, they begin to see it as possible.

 ~ Cherie Carter-Scott ~ 

There are lots of people who, taking great pains to put on becoming clothes, never for an instant think of putting on a becoming frame of mind. 


Emily Post


Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.


Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes time. Vision without action can change the world. A true leader must first see an idea as opportunity, then choose to act upon it.

 ~ Joel Barker ~

(American Businessman, Consultant, Author) 

Who waits upon the when and how, remains forever in the rear.

~James Weldon Johnson~

(1871 - 1938) 

If you see a whole thing- it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives...But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern.

 ~Ursula Le Guin~ 

Adversity is the foundation of virtue.

 ~ Japanese Proverb ~ 

Every man I meet is my superior in some way. In that, I learn of him.

 ~Ralph Waldo Emerson~ 

We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.

 ~Herman Melville~ 

Time is but the stream I go a-fishin in. I drink at it, but while I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. It's thin current slides away, but eternity remains.

 ~Henry David Thoreau~

Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then, do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.

 ~ Margaret Young ~ 

Whatever does not destroy me makes me stronger.

 ~Friedrich Nietzsche~

The Twilight of Idols 

Out of difficulties grow miracles.

 ~ Jean De La Bruyere ~

(1645-1696, French Writer) 

Mountains of gold would not seduce some men, yet flattery would break them down.

 ~Henry Ward Beecher~ 

If you want to feel rich, just count all of the things you have that money can't buy.


Most of us are pretty good at keeping promises to others and pretty bad at keeping promises to ourselves.

 ~ Lawrence LeShan ~ 

Most Americans who complain that they enjoy too little leisure are struggling to find a few extra minutes to watch Oprah Winfrey and L.A. Law.

 ~Gary Burtless~

Wall Street Journal - January 4, 1990 

Power may justly be compared to a great river; while kept within its bounds it is both beautiful and useful, but when it overflows its banks, it brings destruction and desolation to all in its way.

 ~Andrew Hamilton~ 

It is time to start living the life you imagined.

 ~Henry James~ 

I've seen a lot of men die only a few months after they retire. Sure, working can kill you. But so can not working.


 ~Lee Iacocca~

Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then, do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.

 ~ Margaret Young ~

(American Author) 

Now is the dwelling place of God himself.

 ~Thomas R. Kelly~ 

'Are you not,'a Rugby master had asked him in discussing one of his essays, 'a little out of your depth here?' 'Perhaps, Sir' was the confident reply, 'but I can swim.'

 ~Archbishop William Temple~

(1881 - 1944) 

I've believed ever since that living on the edge, living in and through your fear, is the summit of life, and that people who refuse to take that dare condemn themselves to a life of living death.


 ~ John H. Johnson ~

(American Businessman, Founder of Johnson Publishing)

Have more than thou showest, Speak less than thou knowest, Lend less than thou owest.

 ~William Shakespeare~

King Lear

People do not lack strength; they lack will.

You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.


Dignity does not consist in posessing honors, but in deserving them.


Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don't give up.


  ~ Anne Lamott ~

(American Writer)

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, 'thank you'; that would suffice.

 ~Meister Eckhar ~

The only place where success comes before work is in a dictionary.

 ~ Vidal Sassoon ~

(American Hairdresser) 

I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I have just lived the length of it. I want to also have lived the width of it as well.

Associate yourself with men of good quality, if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.

 ~ George Washington ~

Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet.

  ~ James Oppenheim~

Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity.

 ~ Christopher Morley ~

(1890-1957, American Novelist, Journalist, Poet) 

The truth is that the beginning of anything and its end are alike and touching.

 ~Yoshida Kenko~

The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach -- waiting for a gift from the sea.

 ~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh ~

(1906-, American Author) 

That best portion of a good man's life; His little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.

  ~William Wordsworth~ 

Enthusiasm, like measles, mumps and the common cold, is highly contagious.

 ~ Emory Ward ~ 

When a man feels throbbing within him the power to do what he undertakes as well as it can possibly be done, and all of his faculties say amen to what he is doing, and give their unqualified approval to his efforts, - this is happiness, this is success.

 ~ Orison Swett Marden ~ 

All my life I used to wonder what I would become when I grew up. Then, about seven years ago, I realized that I was never going to grow up - that growing is an ever ongoing process.


 ~ M. Scott Peck ~

(American Psychiatrist, Author)

There is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost.


 ~ Martha Graham ~

Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.

~ Les Brown ~

(1945-, American Speaker, Author, Trainer, Motivator Lecturer) 

Associate yourself with men of good quality, if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.

 ~ George Washington ~

Diamonds are nothing more than chunks of coal that stuck to their jobs.

  ~ Malcolm Forbes ~
