Stand back. I don’t know how far it will go. No, this is not Adam talking to Eve. It’s me telling you that I will be adding new quotes off and on, so the list can eventually be pretty long. That’s all. Geeeeeeeeeezzzzz!!!!! I can’t believe a clean cut guy like me is stuck with all you perverted freaks.
-Ultimately we know deeply that the other side of every fear is freedom.
-Someday I hope to enjoy enough of what the world calls success so that someone will ask me, ‘What’s the secret of it?’ I shall say simply this “I get up when I fall down.”
-You can get everything in life that you want, if you’ll first help enough people get what they want.

-It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.
-Progress always involves risk. You can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first.

-What happens is not as important as how you react to what happens.
-The more you love what you are doing, the more successful it will be for you.
-Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all of your energies on a limited set of targets.
-Nothing can resist the human will that will stake even its existence on its stated purpose.
-The following words will carry me through every adversity and maintain my life in balance – This too shall pass.
-Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
-I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but the number of times I succeed and the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times I can fail and keep on trying.
-The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.
