"There is no past that we can bring back by longing for it. The only real failure is the failure to try. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing. Nothing happens unless first we dream. We get up in the morning. We do our best. Nothing else matters. This is a new and different world. The challenge is to cope with it. Not just cope but thrive. All we know about the future is that it will be different. Most things don’t work out as expected, but what happens instead often turns out to be the good stuff. Everything will be all right in the end. If it's not all right then it's not the end."

"I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather that my ashes should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot.
I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of a man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time."
”Do your work. Not just your work, do a little more, but that little is worth more than all the rest.
And if you suffer, as you must, and if you doubt, as you must, do your work.
Put your heart into it, and the sky will clear.
Then out of your doubt and suffering will be born the supreme joy of life.”
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
"Forget mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you’re going to do today and do it. Today is your lucky day."
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
