My favourite quotes II

Here is the second post on my favourite sayings!

It's simply a matter of doing what you do best and not worrying about what the other fellow is going to do.

Success usuallly comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.

People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.

The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is: that one often comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won't.

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no help at all.

Do not look where you fell, but where you slipped.

I don't know the the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everbody.

If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

An error doesn't become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.

There are two kinds of failures: The man who will do nothing he is told, and the man who will do nothing else.

If you want to increase your success rate, double your failure rate.

Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.

I attribute my success to this - I never gave or took any excuse.

If you can DREAM it, you can DO it.

Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die tomorrow.

Throw your heart over the fence and the rest will follow.

Enthusiasm is a volcano on whose top never grows the grass of hesitation.

Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.

Knowledge is power, but enthusiasm pulls the switch.

There are two ways of meeting difficulties: you alter the difficulties, or you alter yourself to meet them.

When I hear somebody sigh that Life is hard, I am always tempted to ask, Compared to what?

The Difficult is that which can be done immediately; the Impossible that which takes a little longer.

Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs.

It is a good rule to face difficulties at the time they arise and not allow them to increase unacknowledged.

To be successful you must accept all challenges that come your way. You can't just accept the ones you like.

Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.

Accept yourself as you are. Otherwise you will never see opportunity. You will not feel free to move toward it; you will feel you do not deserve it.

Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.

The art of life is to know how to enjoy a little and to endure very much.

As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.

Life is a tragedy for those who feel, and a comedy for those who think.

Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved.

Did you ever see an unhappy horse? Did you ever see bird that had the blues? One reason why birds and horses are not unhappy is because they are not trying to impress other birds and horses.

Goals are dreams with deadlines.

If you're bored with life -- you don't get up every morning with a burning desire to do things -- you don't have enough goals.

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

All that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is a direct result of his own thoughts
