Fate is nothing but the deeds committed in a prior state of existence.
None of us will ever accomplish anything excellent or commanding except when he listens to this whisper which is heard by him alone.
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
Always do what you are afraid to do.
Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail
It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.
For what avail the plough or sail, or land or life, if freedom fail?
We have a great deal more kindness than is ever spoken. (Despite) all the selfishness that chills like east winds the world, the whole human family is bathed with an element of love like a fine ether.. The effect of the indulgence of this human affection is a certain cordial exhilaration.
Live in the sunshine
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.
Make the most of yourself.. For that is all there is of you.
Shallow men believe in luck or in circumstance. Strong men believe in cause and effect.
Be yourself; no base imitator of another, but your best self. There is something which you can do better than another. Listen to the inward voice and bravely obey that. Do the things at which you are great, not what you were never made for.
You become what you think about all day long.
That which we persist in doing becomes easier to do, not that the nature of the thing has changed but that our power to do has increased.
