  • We achieve everything by our efforts alone. Our fate is not decided by an almighty God. We decide our own fate by our actions. You have to gain mystery over yourself. It is not a matter of sitting back and accepting.
    (Daw Aung San Suu Kyi)

  • There are many great animal images for business - the soaring eagle, the industrious beaver, the majestic lion and the quick rabbit. For me it is the mongoose. To succeed in business - you have to be ready to face and kill the cobras that will try to kill your future.
    (Dr. Gary V. Carter)

  • It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.
    (Elinor Smith)

  • It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.
    (Edmund Hillary)

  • A young person, to achieve, must first get out of his mind any notion either of the ease or rapidity of success. Nothing ever just happens in this world.
    (Edward William Bok)

  • It is a juvenile notion that a society needs a lofty purpose and a shining vision to achieve much. Both in the market place and on the battlefield men who set their hearts on toys have often displayed unequal initiative and drive. And one must be ignorant of the creative process to look for a close correspondence between motive and achievement in the world of thought and imagination.
    (Eric Hoffer)

  • There are many who find a good alibi far more attractive than an achievement. For an achievement does not settle anything permanently. We still have to prove our worth anew each day. We have to prove that we are as good today as we were yesterday. But when we have a valid alibi for not achieving anything we are fixed, so to speak, for life. Moreover when we have an alibi for not writing a book, painting a picture and so on, we have an alibi for not writing the greatest book and not painting the greatest picture. Small wonder that the effort expended and the punishment endured in obtaining a good alibi often exceed the effort and grief requisite for the attainment of a most marked achievement.
    (Eric Hoffer)

  • One that desires to excel should endeavour in those things that are in themselves most excellent.
