“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing.”


“Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.”


“Adhere to your purpose and you will soon feel as well as you ever did. On the contrary, if you falter, and give up, you will lose the power of keeping any resolution, and will regret it all your life.”


“My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.”


“The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.”


“Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”


“That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well.”


“I don’t think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.”


“If I am killed, I can die but once; but to live in constant dread of it, is to die over and over again.”

“If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how – the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right, what’s said against me won’t amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.”

  • It help me to do my G.K. homework

  • I want to know the meaning of the quotation called – ‘Always bear in mind that your resolution to succeed is more important than any other thing.’

    • Loosely translated, I would say that it means that a person’s determination to succeed is more important than any other thing because it is the driving force of all other things. It’s like the engine of the car. You can have the most expensive, beautiful, dynamic parts to a car but without the engine (determination), the car won’t drive.

  • Hats off to his greatness

  • I’d rather be hated for who I am than be loved for who I’m not.
