Norman Vincent Peale:
Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
The mind is everything. What you think you become.
Ralph Waldo Emerson:
The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.
Henry Stanley Haskins:
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
Abraham Joshua Heschel:
Self-respect is the root of discipline: The sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself.
Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades. A mode of conduct, a standard of courage, discipline, fortitude, and integrity can do a great deal to make a woman beautiful.
Henry David Thoreau:
What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
