Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.
You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.
The more one does and sees and feels, the more one is able to do, and the more genuine may be one's appreciation of fundamental things like home, and love, and understanding companionship.
Those who intend on becoming great should love neither themselves nor their own things, but only what is just, whether it happens to be done by themselves or others.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
Change can be scary, but you know what's scarier? Allowing fear to stop you from growing, evolving and progressing.
Self-growth is a spiral: we keep returning to the lessons we need to learn over and over again until they're assimilated.
I am going to make a very beautiful life for myself no matter what it takes.
The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
