What life means to us is determined, not so much by what life brings to us as by the attitude we bring to life; not so much by what happens to us as by our reaction to what happens.
When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.
I'm still buying green bananas! I guess that makes me an optimist. Don't worry about me...
Success in life comes not from having the right cards, but from playing bad ones properly.
Every man's life is a fairy tale written by God's finger.
May you live all the days of your life.
If you cannot win, make the one ahead of you break the record.
Life at the top is frequently a lonely business.
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.
Failure is not an option.
