John Henrik Clarke

Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so you shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.
James Allen

Experience is the only prophecy of wise men.

Whatever we expect with confidence becomes our own self-fulfilling prophecy.
