Take courage and work on. Patience and steady work— this is the only way.
Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, that is way great spiritual giants are produced.
“The earth is enjoyed by heroes”— this is the unfailing truth. Be a hero. Always say, “I have no fear”.
The remedy for weakness is not brooding over weakness, but thinking of strength.
This is the great fact: strength is life, weakness is death. Strength is felicity, life eternal, immortal; weakness is constant strain and misery: weakness is death.
To succeed, you must have tremendous perseverance, tremendous will. ‘I will drink the ocean’, says the persevering soul, ‘at my will mountains will crumble up.’ Have that sort of energy, that sort of will, work hard, and you will reach the goal.
To work with undaunted energy! What fear! Who is powerful enough to thwart you.
Truth can be stated in a thousand different ways, yet each one can be true.
We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act.
We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.
