He who never fell never climbed.
Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold well.
The key to success is sincerity, and if you can fake that you can do anything.
It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.
As always, victory finds a hundred fathers but defeat is always an orphan.
How do you measure success? To laugh often, and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a redeemed social condition, or a job well done; to know even one other life has breathed because you lived this is to have succeeded.
Each success only buys an admission ticket to a more difficult problem.
The sin is not falling down, but staying down.
Some people go through life trying to find out what the world holds for them only to find out too late that it's what they bring to the world that really counts.
To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.
