If you do not hope, you will not find what is beyond your hopes.
St. Clement of Alexandra
Dream big and dare to fail.
With will one can do anything.
We are all inventors, each sailing out on a voyage of discovery, guided each by a private chart,
of which there is no duplicate. The world is all gates, all opportunities.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems you could not hang on a minute longer,
never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
Harriet Beecher Stowe

The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.
Arthur C. Clarke
Well begun is half done.
The best way out is always through.
Without inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant.
There is a fuel in us which needs to be ignited with sparks.
Johann Gottfried Von Herder
Life consists not in holding good cards, but in playing those you hold well.
And all may do what has by man been done.
Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us.
Work spares us from three evils: boredom, vice, and need.
If the wind will not serve, take to the oars.
Destitutus ventis, remos adhibe
Men's best successes come after their disappointments.
Henry Ward Beecher
No star is lost once we have seen,
We always may be what we might have been.
He turns not back who is bound to a star.
Leonardo Da Vinci
You cannot plough a field by turning it over in your mind.
Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.
William B. Sprague
Strong lives are motivated by dynamic purposes.
Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome.
Fortune favors the brave.
When the best things are not possible, the best may be made of those that are.
