No one can possibly achieve any real and lasting success or "get rich" in business by being a conformist.
J. Paul Getty

No road is too long for him who advances slowly and does not hurry, and no attainment is beyond his reach who equips himself with patience to achieve it.
Jean de La Bruyère

Thomas Edison dreamed of a lamp that could be operated by electricity, began where he stood to put his dream into action, and despite more than ten thousand failures, he stood by that dream until he made it a physical reality.
Practical dreamers do not quit.
Napoleon Hill

Those who believe they are exclusively in the right are generally those who achieve something.
Aldous Huxley

Dreams seldom materialize on their own.
Dian Fossey

Genius begins great works; labor alone finishes them.
Joseph Joubert

Vigilance in watching opportunity; tact and daring in seizing upon opportunity; force and persistence in crowding opportunity to its utmost of possible achievement — these are the martial virtues which must command success.
Austin Phelps

I attempt an arduous task; but there is no worth in that which is not a difficult achievement.

Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.
Napoleon Hill

The secret of all great undertakings is hard work and self-reliance.
Gustavus F. Swift

Shallow men believe in luck, strong men believe in cause and effect.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

People sometimes attribute my success to my genius; all the genius I know anything about is hard work.
Alexander Hamilton

Success is sweet, the sweeter if long delayed and attained through maulfold struggles and defeats.
A. Bronson Alcott

Much we learn only to forget it again; to stand by the goal, we must traverse all the way to it.

Not the maker of plans and promises, but rather the one who offers faithful service in small matters. This is the person who is most likely to achieve what is good and lasting.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Great men are the modellers, patterns, and in a wide sense creators, of whatsoever the general mass of men contrived to do and attain.

If the mass of people hesitate to act, strike thou in swift with all boldness; the noble heart that understands and seizes quick hold of opportunity can achieve everything.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
