Dwight D. Eisenhower
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest of creating things new.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Thank God every morning when you get up that you have something to do that day, which must be done, whether you like it or not.
James Russell Lowell
You've done it before and you can do it now. See the positive possibilities. Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.
My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.
People can judge me for what I've done. And I think when somebody's out in the public eye, that's what they do. So I'm fully comfortable with who I am, what I stand for, and what I've always stood for.
One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. He told me to go slow to go fast. I think that applies to everything in life. We live as though there aren't enough hours in the day but if we do each thing calmly and carefully we will get it done quicker and with much less stress.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done.
Robert A. Heinlein
I'm convinced of this: Good done anywhere is good done everywhere. For a change, start by speaking to people rather than walking by them like they're stones that don't matter. As long as you're breathing, it's never too late to do some good.
Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.
Vincent Van Gogh
I'm a mirror. If you're cool with me, I'm cool with you, and the exchange starts. What you see is what you reflect. If you don't like what you see, then you've done something. If I'm standoffish, that's because you are.
I done wrestled with an alligator, I done tussled with a whale; handcuffed lightning, thrown thunder in jail; only last week, I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalised a brick; I'm so mean I make medicine sick.
The principle goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done.
I felt ashamed for what I had done. I don't have any excuses. I did what I did. I take full responsibility for myself and my actions. I wouldn't pawn this off on anybody. I'm sorry it happened. And I hurt people.
'Perfection' to me is, I walk away from a situation and say, 'I did everything I could do right there. There was nothing more that I could do.' I was a hundred percent, like the meter was at the top. There was nothing else I could have done. You know? Like, I worked as hard as I possibly could have. That's perfection.
If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done.
There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, 'All right, then, have it your way.'
C. S. Lewis
Well done is better than well said.
It always seems impossible until its done.
When that shutter clicks, anything else that can be done afterward is not worth consideration.
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
I'm writing a book. I've got the page numbers done.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
