What ever fortune brings, don’t be afraid of doing things.
It is not only what we do, but also what we do not do, for which we are accountable.
The world is divided into people who do things and people who get the credit. Try, if you can, to belong to the first class. There’s far less competition.
Many enjoy the shade, but few rake leaves.
Thinking well is wise; planning well;, wiser; doing well wisest and best of all.
Where you are is of no moment, but only what you are doing there. It is not the place that ennobles you, but you the place, and this only by doing that which is great and noble.
In the dim background of our mind, we know what we ought to be doing, but somehow we cannot start. Every moment, we expect the spell to break, but it continues, pulse after pulse, and we float with it.
What you do when you don’t have to, determined what you will be when you can no longer help it.
There is no pleasure in having nothing to do; the fun is having lots to do and not doing it.
It takes less time to do a thing right than to explain why you did it wrong.
