If it is to be, it is up to me.
Know yourself and you will win all battles.
You are educated when you have the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or self-confidence.
Confidence is a very fragile thing.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in our private heart is for all men - that is genius.
Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings.
If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think that you dare not, you don't;
If you'd like to win and you think you can't
It's almost certain that you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you've lost;
For out in the world you'll find
Success begins with a fellows will-
It's all in the state of mind.
If you think that you are out-classed, you are;
You've got to think high to rise;
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man;
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.
Stewart E. White
Do not attempt to do a thing unless you are sure of yourself; but do not relinquish it simply because someone else is not sure of you.
Whoever does not regard what he has as most amply wealth, is unhappy, though he be master of the world.
Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment.
