If you cannot help worrying, remember that worrying cannot help you either.

If one desires a change, one must be that change before that change can take place.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
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.
I always felt that I hadn't achieved what I wanted to achieve. I always felt I could get better. That's the whole incentive.
What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve it through not dying.
Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them. Disagree with them. Glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things.

Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have ? life itself.
I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.
Don't worry about genius. Don't worry about being clever. Trust to hard work, perseverance and determination. And the best motto for a long march is: Don't grumble. Plug on!
Change your thoughts and you change your world.
