Success Quotes

from thousands of famous people

I Learned This, At Least, By My Experiment; That If One Advances Confidently In The Direction Of His Dreams, And Endeavors To Live The Life Which He Has Imagined, He Will Meet With A Success Unexpected In Common Hours. He Will Put Some Things Behind, Will Pass An Invisible Boundary; New, Universal, And More Liberal Laws Will Begin To Establish Themselves Around And Within Him; Or The Old Laws Be Expanded, And Interpreted In His Favor In A More Liberal Sense, And He Will Live With The License Of A Higher Order Of Beings. In Proportion As He Simplifies His Life, The Laws Of The Universe Will Appear Less Complex, And Solitude Will Not Be Solitude, Nor Poverty Poverty, Nor Weakness Weakness. If You Have Built Castles In The Air, Your Work Need Not Be Lost; That Is Where They Should Be. Now Put The Foundations Under Them.
~ Henry David Thoreau, "Walden", pp. 323- 324

And Even Though A Man Should For A Time Be Unsuccessful, Still He Must Be Honest; Better To Lose All And Save Character. For Character Is Itself A Fortune.
~ Samuel Smiles
