Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.

A hallucination is a fact, not an error; what is erroneous is a judgment based upon it.
Today's opportunities erase yesterday's failures.
Great investment opportunities come around when excellent companies are surrounded by unusual circumstances that cause the stock to be misappraised.
The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
Not knowing when the dawn will come, I open every door.
Next to knowing when to seize an opportunity, the most important thing in life is to know when to forego an advantage.
Time = Life, Therefore, waste your time and waste of your life, or master your time and master your life.
Wise men don't need advice. Fools won't take it.
The difference between a smart man and a wise man is that a smart man knows what to say, a wise man knows whether or not to say it.
We have no words for speaking of wisdom to the stupid. He who understands the wise is wise already.
You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him.
Those who are more adapted to the active life can prepare themselves for contemplation in the practice of the active life, while those who are more adapted to the contemplative life can take upon themselves the works of the active life so as to become yet more apt for contemplation.
The only correct actions are those that demand no explanation and no apology.
Do every act of your life as if it were your last.
It is easy to sit up and take notice, What is difficult is getting up and taking action.
Think like a man of action, and act like a man of thought.
Life leaps like a geyser for those who drill through the rock of inertia.
A man can get discouraged many times but he is not a failure until he begins to blame somebody else and stops trying.
Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die tomorrow.
If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember this whole thing was started by a mouse.
To dream anything that you want to dream, that is the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do, that is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself, to test your limits, that is the courage to succeed.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
Two basic rules of life: 1. Change is Inevitable 2. Everyone Resists Change. Remember this: When you are through changing... you're through.
If you have a dream, give it a chance to happen.
The moment of enlightenment is when a person's dreams of possibilities become images of probabilities.
The end is never as satisfying as the journey. To have achieved everything but to have done so without integrity and excitement is to have achieved nothing.
People who wait for changes to occur on the outside before they commit to making changes on the inside will never make any changes at all.
Maturity is the capacity to endure uncertainty.
There are two levers for moving men -- interest and fear.
Maturity: Be able to stick with a job until it is finished. Be able to bear an injustice without having to get even. Be able to carry money without spending it. Do your duty without being supervised.
Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner.
The ultimate inspiration is the deadline.
Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.
Saddest Poem

I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.

Write, for instance: "The night is full of stars,
and the stars, blue, shiver in the distance."

The night wind whirls in the sky and sings.

I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.
I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.

On nights like this, I held her in my arms. I kissed her so many times under the infinite sky.

She loved me, sometimes I loved her.
How could I not have loved her large, still eyes?

I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.
To think I don't have her. To feel that I've lost her.

To hear the immense night, more immense without her.
And the poem falls to the soul as dew to grass.

What does it matter that my love couldn't keep her.
The night is full of stars and she is not with me.

That's all. Far away, someone sings. Far away.
My soul is lost without her.

As if to bring her near, my eyes search for her.
My heart searches for her and she is not with me.

The same night that whitens the same trees.
We, we who were, we are the same no longer.

I no longer love her, true, but how much I loved her.
My voice searched the wind to touch her ear.

Someone else's. She will be someone else's. As she once
belonged to my kisses.
Her voice, her light body. Her infinite eyes.

I no longer love her, true, but perhaps I love her.
Love is so short and oblivion so long.

Because on nights like this I held her in my arms,
my soul is lost without her.

Although this may be the last pain she causes me,
and this may be the last poem I write for her.
Out of limitations, new forms emerge
Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.
Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know that so it goes on flying anyway.
If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.
There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.
It's not what your are, it's what you don't become that hurts.
Make it a rule of life never to regret and never to look back. Regret is an appalling waste of energy; you can't build on it; it's only good for wallowing in.
For of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these: It might have been!
It is easier to live through someone else than to become complete yourself.
Do good to your friends to keep them, to your enemies to win them.
In matters of truth and justice, there is no difference between large and small problems, for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same.
When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.
A relationship, I think, is like a shark, you know? It has to constantly move forward or it dies. And I think what we got on our hands is a dead shark.
Only in your imagination can you revise.
It is impossible that anything so natural, so necessary, and so universal as death, should ever have been designed by providence as an evil to mankind.
That which is so universal as death must be a benefit.
There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love.
