Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.
John D. Rockefeller
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Chaos is inherent in all compounded things. Strive on with diligence.
Good things come slow - especially in distance running.
Leonardo da Vinci
Where there is love there is life.
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Have you learned the lessons only of those who admired you, and were tender with you, and stood aside for you? Have you not learned great lessons from those who braced themselves against you, and disputed passage with you?
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
-John F. Kennedy
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer.
Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward.
All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.
-T. E. Lawrence
Sometimes we stare so long at a door that is closing that we see too late the one that is open. -Alexander Graham Bell
Art begins with resistance-at the point where resistance is overcome. No human masterpiece has ever been created without great labor. -Andre Gide
The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it. -Moliere
The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow. -Thomas Paine
Run Like Hell and get the agony over with.
- Clarence Demar
Learn to run when feeling the pain; then push harder.
I was pushed by myself because I have my own run, and that is that every day I run faster, and try harder.
