The will to win is important, but the will to prepare is vital.
If you cannot win, make the one ahead of you break the record.
When a man does all he can, though it succeeds not well, blame not him that did it.
Thoughtfulness affects success more than age and hard work.
Live all you can; it's a mistake not to. It doesn't so much matter what you do in particular, so long as you have your life. If you haven't had that, what have you had?
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is, “Try to please everybody.”
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.
Let us live while we live.
It is not how many years we live, but rather what we do with them.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
