Chapter One Ability

#1 Aim high, but stay on the level.

#2 They are able because they think they are able. Virgil

#3 For they can conquer who believe they can. Virgil

#4 We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done. Henry headache Wadsworth Longfellow

Acceptance

#5 The measure of a man is not how tall he is, but how much his neighbors respect him.

#6 I have no methods; all I do is accept people as they are. Dr. Paul Tournier

#7 If you look for the best in people, it will keep you so busy you won't find time to notice the worst.

Achievement

#8 The best use of this life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.

#9 Today's preparation determines tomorrows achievement.

#10 The reward of a thing well done is to have done it.

#11 Well done is better than well said. Ben Franklin

#12 What I can do, plus what God can do, equals enough. Free Methodist

#13 Getting something done is an accomplishment; getting something done right is an achievement.

#14 Doing little things well is a step toward doing big things better.

#15 The most rewarding things you do in life are often the ones that look like they cannot be done. Arnold Palmer

#16 If you have accomplished all that you have planned for yourself, you have not planned enough. Meggido Message

#17 Every great achievement was once impossible.

Action

#18 It doesn't do any good to sit up and take notice if you just keep on sitting.

#19 When the time of need arises, the time for planning has passed.

#20 A man of words and not of deeds is like a garden full of weeds.

#21 Don't find fault, find a remedy.

#22 Lead, follow or get out of the way.

#23 We learn by doing. Aristotle

#24 Don't be afraid to take a big step if one is indicated. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps. David Lloyd George

#25 Our problem is not the lack of knowing; it is the lack of doing. Most people know far more than they think they do. Mark Hatfield

#26 Never learn to do anything. If you don't learn, you'll always find someone else to do it. Mark Twain

#27 Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there. The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.

#37 When the outlook is dark, try the uplook.

#38 We fear things in proportion to our ignorance of them.

#39 Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley. James D. Rogers

#40 Men stumble over pebbles, never over mountains.

#41 Adversity is the springboard to great achievement.

#42 When the bottom drops out of everything, perhaps we should reexamine the foundation.

Age

#43 Age is a high price to pay for maturity.

#44 To me, old age is always 15 years older than I am.

#45 Every one wants to live a long time, but no one wants to get old.

#46 Measure life by its breadth not length.

#47 Nobody loves life like an old man. Sophocles

#48 We grow too soon old and too late smart. Pa. Dutch saying

#49 You are as young as you feel after trying to prove it. Lou Erickson

#50 Old age: When actions creak louder than words. Dana Robbins

#51 What's important is not the years in your life but the life in your years.

#52 It's no secret the people who live long are those who long to live.

#53 Old age is not a hindrance to men chasing women; they just have trouble remembering why.

#54 A man is as old as he feels; a woman is as old as she looks.

#55 The old believe everything; the middle-aged suspect everything; the young know everything. Oscar Wilde

Anger

#56 A man is about as big as the things that make him angry.

#57 When you spill anger, it can't all be mopped up.

#58 The only persons you should want to get even with are those who have helped you.

#59 The best way to knock a chip off your neighbor's shoulder is to give him a pat on the back.

#60 A grudge is one thing that does not get better when it is nursed. #61 Anyone who angers you conquers you. Sister Kenny's mother

#62 The greatest cure of anger is delay. Seneca

#63 It is better to choose what you say than say what you choose.

#64 People, like pins, are useless when they lose their heads.

Attitude

#65 An optimist is one that makes the best of it when he gets the worst of it.

#66 An optimist is someone who goes after Moby Dick in a rowboat and takes the tartar sauce with him. Zig Ziglar

#67 I complained because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet. Arabic proverb

Communication

#68 Don't talk unless you can improve the silence.

#69 When you hold a conversation, don't forget to let go once in a while.

#70 Silences separate more than distances.

#71 You never get a second chance to make a good first impression.

#72 Others will follow your footsteps more readily than they will follow your advice.

#73 Honest differences are often a healthy sign of progress.

#74 We can communicate an idea around the world in seventy seconds, but it sometimes takes years for an idea to get through 1/4" of human skull. Charles F. Kettering

#75 It is better to ask some of the questions than know all the answers. James Thurber

#76 The tongue is the only tool that gets sharper with use. #86 It is amazing how much people can get done if they do not worry about who gets the credit. Sandra Swinney

#87 Inspiration and imagination go hand in hand.

#88 Ideas not coupled with action never become bigger than the brain cells they occupied. Arnold H. Glasow #89 In this world of give and take, not enough people are willing to give what it takes.

Creativity

#90 Don't go where the path leads. Rather go where there is no path and leave a trail.

#91 If you want to launch a big ship, you have to go where the water is deep.
