Don't make friends who are comfortable to be with. Make friends who will force you to lever yourself up. 
- Thomas J. Watson, Sr.
Trials, temptations, disappointments -- all these are helps instead of hindrances, if one uses them rightly. They not only test the fibre of a character, but strengthen it. Every conquered temptation represents a new fund of moral energy. Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before.
-- James Buckham

Some day, in years to come, you will be wrestling with the great temptation, or trembling under the great sorrow of your life. But the real struggle is here, now, in these quiet weeks. Now it is being decided whether, in the day of your supreme sorrow or temptation, you shall miserably fail or gloriously conquer. Character cannot be made except by a steady, long continued process.
- Phillips Brooks (1835-1893) American Bishop

The danger of choosing to be measured by the standards of others is that you may set artificially low limits on your own potential.  If what is available to you is the combined wisdom and experience of all who came before you, it is reasonable to believe that you can set new standards, standards which no one has yet dreamed of.  Therefore, respectfully reject the limits that have been set by others and in their place choose the universe as your limit.

Henry Ford - P. 22, Success is You

William Faulkner (1897-1962) American Writer


It's really important that you feel good. Because this feeling good is what goes out as a signal into the universe and starts to attract more of itself to you.
