As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it.
Do your duty and a little more and the future will take care of itself.
People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.
I shall argue that strong men, conversely, know when to compromise and that all principles can be compromised to serve a greater principle.
Think of yourself as on the threshold of unparalleled success. A whole, clear, glorious life lies before you. Achieve! Achieve!
The first man gets the oyster, the second man gets the shell.
The average person puts only 25% of his energy and ability into his work. The world takes off its hat to those who put in more than 50% of their capacity, and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100%.
No person will make a great business who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit.
The man who acquires the ability to take full possession of his own mind may take possession of anything else to which he is justly entitled.
Concentrate your energies, your thoughts and your capital. The wise man puts all his eggs in one basket and watches the basket.
I resolved to stop accumulating and begin the infinitely more serious and difficult task of wise distribution.
