Nobody can go off to battle unless he is fully convinced of victory beforehand. If we start without confidence, we have already lost half the battle and we bury our talents. While painfully aware of our own frailties, we have to march on without giving in.

Evangelii Gaudium
If you don't see yourself as a winner, then you cannot perform as a winner.
If you live long enough, you'll see that every victory turns into a defeat.
Once you hear the details of victory, it is hard to distinguish it from a defeat
You may be always victorious if you will never enter into any contest where the issue does not wholly depend upon yourself
The problems of victory are more agreeable than the problems of defeat, but they are no less difficult
Force is all-conquering, but its victories are short-lived
The secret of all victory lies in the organization of the non-obvious
Victory belongs to the most persevering
To be prepared is half the victory

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."
