Success Quotes


Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In those choices lie our growth and our happiness. – Stephen R. Covey

Sure I am that this day we are masters of our fate, that the task which has been set before us is not above our strength; that its pangs and toils are not beyond my endurance. As long as we have faith in our own cause and an unconquerable will to win, victory will not be denied us. – Winston Churchill

Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognise that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible. – Viktor E. Frankl

You are the master of your fate. You are the captain of your soul. And this by reason of the fact that you have a mind that you alone control, and this mind can be stimulated and made to form a direct contact with all the power you need to solve any problem that may confront you. – Napoleon Hill

The road to success lies through many a thorny course, over many an obstacle, from which the fainting heart is often tempted to turn back. But hope and a sense of power within inspire the struggling person still to continue the conflict, till at last courage and perseverance meet with their just reward, and success comes. – Henry Irving

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 garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life is no brief candle for me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations. – George Bernard Shaw

Remember: Hope is a duty, not a luxury. To hope is not to dream … but to turn dreams into reality. Blessed are those who dream dreams and are willing to pay the price to make them come true. As for me, I do not choose to be a common man. It is my right to be uncommon if I can. I seek opportunity, not security. I want to take a calculated risk, to dream and to build, to fall and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will not cower before any master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid to think and act for myself. To enjoy the benefit of my creation and to face the world boldly and say, “This I have done.” – Napoleon Hill

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit – Aristotle

Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least. – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
