"The battle of life is, in most cases, fought uphill and to win it without a struggle were perhaps to win it without honor. If there were no difficulties there would be no success if there were nothing to struggle for, there would be nothing to be achieved."
"In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure."Samuel Smiles on Bill Cosby
"Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success."Samuel Smiles on Swami Vivekananda
"Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it."Samuel Smiles on Bruce Lee
"A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him."Samuel Smiles on David Brinkley
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."Samuel Smiles on Winston Churchill
"Progress however, of the best kind, is comparatively slow. Great results cannot be achieved at once and we must be satisfied to advance in life as we walk, step by step."
"Practical wisdom is only to be learned in the school of experience. Precepts and instruction are useful so far as they go, but, without the discipline of real life, they remain of the nature of theory only."
"The experience gathered from books, though often valuable, is but the nature of learning whereas the experience gained from actual life is one of the nature of wisdom."
"We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success. We often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery."
"It is a mistake to suppose that men succeed through success they much oftener succeed through failures. Precept, study, advice, and example could never have taught them so well as failure has done."
