I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death
The nerve that never relaxes, the eye that never blenches, the thought that never wanders - these are the masters of victory
Sure I am of this, that you have only to endure to conquer. You have only to persevere to save yourselves
Never, never, never give up
Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential
Determine that the thing can and shall be done, and then we shall find the way
Let no feeling of discouragement prey upon you, and in the end you are sure to succeed
Be like a solid tower whose brave height remains unmoved by all the winds that blow; the man who lets his thoughts be turned aside by one thing or another, will lose sight of his true goal, his mind sapped of its strength
Perseverance is a lowly virtue whereby mediocrity achieves an inglorious success
To endure is the first thing a child ought to learn, and that which he will have most need to know

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
