Experience is the child of thought, and thought is the child of action.
First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.
Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.
Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
Success is sweet: the sweeter if long delayed and attained through manifold struggles and defeats.
A. Branson Alcott
