“If you believe in what you are doing, then let nothing hold you up in your work. Much of the best work of the world has been done against seeming impossibilities. The thing is to get the work done.”
“If you do the little jobs well, the big ones tend to take care of themselves.”
“Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.”
“Any fool can criticize, complain, and condemn—and most fools do. But it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving.”
“Criticism is dangerous, because it wounds a person’s precious pride, hurt his sense of importance and arouses resentment.”
“Don’t be afraid of enemies who attack you. Be afraid of the friends who flatter you.”
