Excellence is an art won by training and habituation.

We do not act rightly because we have

virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we
repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.Aristotle

Desire is the key to motivation, but its determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit
of your goal a commitment to excellence that will enable you to attain the success you
seek.Mario Andretti

than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

human race.Calvin Coolidge

Study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing;
and dream while others are wishing.William Arthur Ward

ending.Maria Robinson
Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose.Lyndon Johnson
