Henry FordTo accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe.Anatole FranceI honestly think it is better to be a failure at something you love than to be a success at somethingyou hate. George BurnsIf you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is a compromise.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.GoetheThe greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is toolow and we reach it. Michelangelo BuonarrotiMost of the mistakes in thinking are inadequacies of perception rather than mistakes of logic.Edward de BonoOnly those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.

Vincent Van GoghIf 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 ThoreauThe longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is moreimportant than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, thancircumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is moreimportant than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... ahome. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we willembrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will actin a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the stringwe have, and that is our attitude... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90%how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.Charles SwindollBeyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautifulworld. Be Cheerful. Strive to be happy.Max EhrmannIf you want something badly enough, you make arrangements. If you don't want it badly enough,you make excuses.Hanif Kureishi

PattonSuccess is a science; if you have the conditions, you get the result. Oscar WildeAude aliquid dignum 16th century Latin for "Dare something worthy"We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, butrather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have. Frederick KeonigI am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it. Pablo PicassoWe make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. Winston ChurchillDo not be desirous of having things done quickly. Do not look at small advantages.Desire to have things done quickly prevents their being done thoroughly. Looking at smalladvantages prevents great affairs from being accomplished.ConfuciusChampions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, monthsand years they spend preparing for it.

Jonathan Winters
