No man can become prosperous while he really expects or half expects to remain poor, for holding the poverty thought, keeping in touch with poverty-producing conditions, discourages prosperity. ~Orison Swett Marden

Successful people are ordinary people, but of extraordinary persistence and perseverance. ~Orison Swett Marden


“There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries; And we must take the current when it serves, Or lose our ventures.” 

“‘Tis never offered twice; seize, then, the hour When fortune smiles, and duty points the way; Nor shrink aside to ‘scape the specter fear, Nor pause, though pleasure beckon from her bower; But bravely bear thee onward to the goal.”  ~Shakespeare


If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment. ~Marcus Aurelius

We never shall have any more time–we can’t make it, earn it, or save it. We have, and we have always had, all the time there is. ~Arnold Bennett

Step boldly from the crowd and act fearlessly. ~Orison Sewtt Marden
