I honestly think it is better to be a failure at something you love than to be a success at something you hate.
Most people give up just when they're about to achieve success. They quit on the one yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game one foot from a winning touchdown.
No man succeeds without a good woman behind him. Wife or mother, if it is both, he is twice blessed indeed.
Success isn't a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.
Arnold H. Glasow
Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.
