A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.
Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
Always continue the climb. It is possible for you to do whatever you choose, if you first get to know who you are and are willing to work with a power that is greater than ourselves to do it.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Always desire to learn something useful.
Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
Saint Teresa of Avila
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
Begin to be now what you will be hereafter.
Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
Norman Vincent Peale
