Self-trust is the first secret of success.

Earn money by taking surveys! International offer!

It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.

Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.

Every artist was first an amateur.

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

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.

Earn money by taking surveys! International offer!

The world makes way for the man who knows where he is going.

Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.

For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.

Always do what you are afraid to do.

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.

Sometimes a scream is better than a thesis.

Shallow men believe in luck, believe in circumstances: It was somebody`s name, or he happened to be there at the time, or, it was so then, and another day it would have been otherwise. Strong men believe in cause and effect.

Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.

The religion that is afraid of science dishonors God and commits suicide.
