Time rushes towards us with its hospital tray of infinitely varied narcotics, even while it is preparing us for its inevitably fatal operation.
‘Tis very certain the desire of life prolongs it.
To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.
Cursed is the man who dies, but the evil done by him survives.
Death borders upon our birth, and our cradle stands in the grave.
Time is the father of truth, its mother is our mind.
Time is the longest distance between two places.
Time is the school in which we learn, time is the fire in which we burn.
Time is the wisest counsellor of all.
Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.
Success is blocked by concentrating on it and planning for it... Success is shy - it won't come out while you're watching.
Success is dependent on effort.
Success is falling nine times and getting up ten.
Jon Bon Jovi
The common idea that success spoils people by making them vain, egotistic and self-complacent is erroneous; on the contrary it makes them, for the most part, humble, tolerant and kind.
W. Somerset Maugham
The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity.
The mountains are calling and I must go.
The Universe is one great kindergarten for man. Everything that exists has brought with it its own peculiar lesson.
Orison Swett Marden
The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks.
The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful.
e. e. cummings
I've made an odd discovery. Every time I talk to a savant I feel quite sure that happiness is no longer a possibility. Yet when I talk with my gardener, I'm convinced of the opposite.
