George Bernard Shaw

Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
Author Unknown

He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who has never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had; whose life was an inspiration; whose memory a benediction.
Bessie Stanley

Success is blocked by concentrating on it and planning for it.... Success is shy - it won't come out while you're watching.
Tennessee Williams

If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry.

Martin Luther King

The closer one gets to the top, the more one finds there is no "top."
Nancy Barcus

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.
Will Rogers

Something in human nature causes us to start slacking off at our moment of greatest accomplishment. As you become successful, you will need a great deal of self-discipline not to lose your sense of balance, humility, and commitment.
Ross Perot

Success is a ladder you cannot climb with your hands in your pockets.
Author Unknown

Success without honor is an unseasoned dish; it will satisfy your hunger, but it won't taste good.
Joe Paterno

Success and rest don't sleep together.
Russian Proverb

Tough times never last, but tough people do.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it's dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Thomas Edison

Success is the one unpardonable sin against one's fellows.
Ambrose Bierce

True happiness is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
Helen Keller

To succeed in life, you need two things: ignorance and confidence.
Mark Twain

To do the useful thing, to say the courageous thing, to contemplate the beautiful thing: that is enough for one man's life.
T. S. Eliot

All big things in this world are done by people who are naive and have an idea that is obviously impossible.
Charles Hamilton

I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.
Bill Cosby

Success does not consist in never making mistakes but in never making the same one a second time.
George Bernard Shaw

Success is where preparation and opportunity meet.
Bobby Unser

Success doesn't come to you… you go to it.
