The recipe for perpetual ignorance is: Be satisfied with your opinions and content with your knowledge.
Elbert Hubbard
Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously and never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop this picture!
Dr. Norman Vincent Peale
If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astonish ourselves.
Thomas Edison, Inventor

A truth’s initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. It wasn’t the world being round that agitated people, but that the world wasn’t flat.

Dresden James

In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it.

Robert Heinlein

I don’t wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has got to get down to work.

Pearl Buck

Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.

Stephen King
