You will never find time for anything. If you want time, you must make it.
You reveal your own character by the way you describe others.
Nothing is as frustrating as arguing with someone who knows what he is talking about.
You achieved success when you don’t know if what you are doing is work or play.
The happiest people are those who are too busy to notice.
It not always hanging on that makes one strong; sometimes it’s letting go.
The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is the “extra” you put in it.
What we really want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be.
When there is work to be done, turn up your sleeves, not your nose.
When you give of yourself, you receive more than you give.
There is no fool like an old fool-you can’t beat experience.
No one should be afraid of wasting time by learning something he is not required to know.
