Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of life.
If you would hit the mark, you must aim a little above it; every arrow that flies feels the attraction of earth.
I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has had to overcome while trying to succeed.
One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but it cannot be taken away unless it is surrendered.
Some of us learn from other people’s mistakes and the rest of us have to be other people.
Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things.
We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.
What lies behind us, and what lies before us, are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
勇氣並不限於戰場或印第安納波利斯 500 賽車或在你家裡勇敢地抓住竊賊。勇氣的真正考驗安靜來得多。它是內心的考驗，像是在沒人看時保持信念，像是在房間空時忍受痛苦，像是當你被誤解時兀自獨立。
Courage is not limited to the battlefield or the Indianapolis 500 or bravely catching a thief in your house. The real tests of courage are much quieter. They are the inner tests, like remaining faithful when nobody’s looking, like enduring pain when the room is empty, like standing alone when you’re misunderstood.
