If you have one true friend you have more than your share.
When you form a team, why do you try to form a team? Because teamwork builds trust and trust builds speed.
If something's important enough, you should try. Even if you - the probable outcome is failure.
The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.
Yes, you can lose somebody overnight, yes, your whole life can be turned upside down. Life is short. It can come and go like a feather in the wind.
Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out.
At the end of the day, you are solely responsible for your success and your failure. And the sooner you realize that, you accept that, and integrate that into your work ethic, you will start being successful. As long as you blame others for the reason you aren't where you want to be, you will always be a failure.
The thing I loved the most - and still love the most about teaching - is that you can connect with an individual or a group, and see that individual or group exceed their limits.
I tell my students, it's not difficult to identify with somebody like yourself, somebody next door who looks like you. What's more difficult is to identify with someone you don't see, who's very far away, who's a different color, who eats a different kind of food. When you begin to do that then literature is really performing its wonders.
You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do.
Know your enemy and know yourself and you can fight a hundred battles without disaster.
Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.

You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.
We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?
Part of growing up is realizing you learn to love so many people. It's about forming those relationships and finding what will last forever.
Well, I think that part of being young is not exactly knowing why you do some of the things that you do. And it's by exploring your life or experimenting or making mistakes and learning from them hopefully that you start to forge an identity.
Do your little bit of good where you are; its those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
Ordinary riches can be stolen; real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.
Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.
Just remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance, and facing your fears.
Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.
If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.
Francis of Assisi
