The Habit of Doing More than Paid For

There are ten weaknesses against which most of us must guard ourselves. To reap before we have sown. And the other nine are all wrapped up in the one practice, of creating alibis to cover every mistake made.

There is no more dangerous person - dangerous to himself and to others - than the person who passes judgment without pretending to know the facts.

Among the other things you intend to "cut out" in your new year's resolution , include the word "
Impossible".

If you have tried and met with defeat; if you have planned and watched your plans as they crushed before your eyes; just remember that the greatest men in all history were the products of courage, and courage you know, is born in the cradle of adversity.

Ultimately, nothing matters very much. The defeat that seems to break your heart today will be but a ripple among the waves of other experiences in the ocean of your life further ahead.
