The aim of an argument or discussion should not be victory, but progress.

Joseph Joubert

Nine-tenths of wisdom consists in being wise in time.

Theodore Roosevelt

The life that conquers is the life that moves with a steady resolution and persistence toward a predetermined goal. Those who succeed are those who have thoroughly learned the immense importance of plan in life, and the tragic brevity of time.

W.J. Davison

To think bad thoughts is really the easiest thing in the world. If you leave your mind to itself it will spiral down into ever increasing unhappiness. To think good thoughts, however, requires effort. This is one of the things that discipline – training – is about.

James Clavell, in his novel “Shogun”

In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.

Theodore Roosevelt

Conditions are never just right.  People who delay action until all factors are favorable do nothing.

William Feather

I am only one, but I am one.  I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.
