Discipline strengthens the mind so that it becomes impervious to the corroding influence of fear.
Getting your house in order and reducing the confusion gives you more control over your life. Personal organization somehow releases or frees you to operate more effectively.
In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins, not through strength but by perseverance.
你得假裝你是 100% 確定，你得採取行動，你不能猶豫或兩面下注，任何更少的決心將致使你的努力成為失敗。
You have to pretend you’re 100% sure. You have to take action; you can’t hesitate or hedge your bets. Anything less will condemn your efforts to failure.
Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they’re yours.
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
每個人都有他/她自己要飛的大西洋。不管你很想做什麼，逆著傳統、社區看法、及所謂『常識』的反對… 那就是一個大西洋。我飛越大西洋因為我想要。因事情本身的關係在一個人的心裡想做一件事，喜愛做這件事；集中一個人所有的精力在那上面… 那不儘是成功最可靠的保證，這也是忠實於自己。
Everyone has his/her own Atlantic to fly. Whatever you want very much to do, against the opposition of tradition, neighborhood opinion, and so-called ‘common sense’… that is an Atlantic. I flew the Atlantic because I wanted to. To want in one’s heart to do a thing for its own sake, to enjoy doing it; concentrate all one’s energies upon it… that is not only the surest guarantee of success, it is also being true to oneself.
No one can defeat us unless we first defeat ourselves.
Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity.
There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.
