Unless generosity of spirit prevails among men, there can never be upon earth an ideal life.
Live in the very soul of expectation of better things, in the conviction that something large, grand, and beautiful will await you if your efforts are intelligent, if your mind is kept in a creative condition and you struggle upward to your goal.
If you would make the most of yourself, cut away all of your vitality sappers; get rid of everything which hampers you and holds you back, everything which wastes your energy, cuts down your working capital. Get freedom at any cost.
There is no surer token of a little mind than to imagine that anything in the way of physical labor is dishonoring.
Every man must play the part of his ambition. If you are trying to be a successful man, you must play the part.
The forthputting of willpower is a means of strengthening willpower. The will becomes strong by exercise. To stick to a thing till you are master is a test of intellectual discipline and power.
