~ I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you’re not in this world to live up to mine.
~ Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.~ Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.~ A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.~ To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.~ The doubters said, “Man can not fly,” The doers said, “Maybe, but we’ll try,” And finally soared In the morning glow While non-believers Watched from below.
~ If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done. Make at least one definite move daily toward your goal.~ The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.~ I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.
~ Don’t fear failure. — Not failure, but low aim, is the crime. In great attempts it is glorious even to fail.
~ Use only that which works, and take it from any place you can find it.~ Do not be tense, just be ready, not thinking but not dreaming, not being set but being flexible. It is being “wholly” and quietly alive, aware and alert, ready for whatever may come.
~ Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.~ Life is wide, limitless. There is no border, no frontier.
~ The great mistake is to anticipate the outcome of the engagement; you ought not to be thinking of whether it ends in victory or defeat. Let nature take its course, and your tools will strike at the right moment.~ Empty your cup so that it may be filled; become devoid to gain totality.~ Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.~ If there is a God, he is within. You don’t ask God to give you things, you depend on God for your inner theme.
