“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”

“Always deliver more than expected.”

  • Larry Page

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

  • Theodore Roosevelt

“Whatever you do, be different—that was the advice my mother gave me, and I can’t think of better advice for an entrepreneur. If you’re different, you will stand out.”

“The stars will never align, and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesn’t conspire against you, but it doesn’t go out of its way to line up the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. ‘Someday’ is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. Pro and con lists are just as bad. If it’s important to you and you want to do it ‘eventually,’ just do it and correct course along the way.”

  • Tim Ferris

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”

“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.”

  • Oprah Winfrey

“Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.”

  • Napoleon Hill

“I knew that if I failed I wouldn’t regret that, but I knew the one thing I might regret is not trying.”

“To strive towards a goal, to know that life is more than happiness. That existence is more than breathing, but the choice to be greater. The story of humanity is not one of blithe serendipity, but of sorrow, pain, jubilation, sacrifice, and triumph. You were not put here to experience only joy, but to live a fully human life. To be truly human. You must reach for the stars for only then will you experience the cascade of looking at a mountain in the face and marveling at all its beauty and terror.”
