Begin and then the work will be completed." Unknown: "Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too."

George Schultz: "The minute you start talking about what you're going to do if you lose, you have lost." Lawrence Block: "If fate sends you a lemon, use it to make lemonade." Mary Manin Morrissey: "Start living now. Stop saving the good china for that special occasion. Stop withholding your love until that special person materializes. Every day you are alive is a special occasion. Every minute, every breath, is a gift from God." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: "Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody." Ralph Waldo Emerson: "Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen."

Kennedy: "There are costs and risks to a program of action, but they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction." Bob Dylan: "A man is successful if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night and in-between he does whatever he wants to do." Robert Cushing: "The fact is, that to do anything in the world worth doing, we must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in and scramble through as well as we can." Catherine Pulsifer: "A determined person will do more with a pen and paper, than a lazy person will accomplish with a personal computer." Alexander Graham Bell: "What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it." Ella Wheeler Wilcox: "There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul." Bill Copeland: "You've removed most of the road-blocks to success when you've learnt the difference between motion and direction." Bill Gove: "Fate is what life gives you. Destiny is what you do with it... What most people tend to forget is that we have unbelievable control over our destiny." Theodore N. Vail: "Real difficulties can be overcome; it is only the imaginary ones that are unconquerable." William J.H. Boetcker: "You can't fly a kite unless you go against the wind and have a weight to keep it from turning a somersault. The same with man. No man will succeed unless he is ready to face and overcome difficulties and is prepared to assume responsibilities." Ronald E. Osborn: "Undertake something that is difficult; it will do you good. Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow."

If you love what you are doing, you will be successful." Conrad Hilton: "Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit." Anthony Robbins: "The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you're in control of your life. If you don't, life controls you." John R. Amos: "It's simply a matter of doing what you do best and not worrying about what the other fellow is going to do." Anthony Robbins: "If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you'll achieve the same results." Brian Tracy: "No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. To be successful, we absolutely, positively have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn to achieve our goals."

Frank Tyger: "Discoveries are often made by not following instructions, by going off the main road, by trying the untried." Charles C. Noble: "You must have long term goals to keep you from being frustrated by short term failures." Sir Cecil Beaton: "Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary. Dare to be different from them all!." Alan Ashley-Pitt: "The man who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd.

Antonio Porchia: "They will say you are on the wrong road, if it is your own."
