Ramana Maharshi

I never step upon a stage without asking myself whether

I never step upon a stage without asking myself whether I will succeed in finishing the opera. The fact is that a conscientious singer is never sure of himself or of anything. He is ever in the hands of Destiny.

Instead of making people victims of people who are successful, we should be telling people, ‘Look, you are having a hard time, I feel bad for you. Let’s look at what you’re doing, let’s teach you how to succeed. Let’s give you the tools to succeed as opposed to turning everybody into victims.
Jon Lovitz
It is quite possible for the vulgar to be funny, but to succeed, it must rise to a certain genius.
Roger Ebert
I don’t think I’ll ever feel perfectly balanced, but I feel like I’m figuring it out, and I’m surrounded by really wonderful people that want to see me succeed and be happy. Life is wild.
Sharon Van Etten
We must have ideals and try to live up to them, even if we never quite succeed. Life would be a sorry business without them. With them it’s grand and great.
Lucy Maud Montgomery
If at first you don’t succeed… so much for skydiving.
Henny Youngman
I have been obscenely lucky. I’ve got most of the things I’ve asked for and done well at the things I’ve wanted to succeed at.
M. J. Hyland
My parents are from north London, and so it’s not like I’m some Yank who wants to make a profit out of football. I don’t care about making money. I just want to see Spurs succeed and, if I can help, that’s great.
Steve Nash
Growth is the great separator between those who succeed and those who do not. When I see a person beginning to separate themselves from the pack, it’s almost always due to personal growth.
John C. Maxwell
I think this is one reason why the Lord invented the Internet – so members can teach one another how to succeed in assignments the Lord has given us, and to give us opportunities to inspire and bear testimony in a horizontal way.
Clayton M. Christensen
My message, especially to young people is to have courage to think differently, courage to invent, to travel the unexplored path, courage to discover the impossible and to conquer the problems and succeed. These are great qualities that they must work towards. This is my message to the young people.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
I think every parent takes more pleasure in seeing their child succeed than seeing themselves succeed.
Jerry Reinsdorf
What I have to do now is figure where my passion is, and follow my heart; I’ve proven that if I have the passion for something then I can succeed. I haven’t been listening to my heart in the last little while.
Clara Hughes
When you do life a certain way, it’s bound to give you a higher level of probability to succeed, and that’s what we preach.
Andrew Cherng
But as the arms-control scholar Thomas Schelling once noted, two things are very expensive in international life: promises when they succeed and threats when they fail.
Fareed Zakaria
So what exactly are the rewards of resentment. It is always a relief to know that the reason we have failed in life is not because we lack the talent, energy, or determination to succeed, but because of a factor that is beyond our control and that has loaded the dice decisively against us.
Theodore Dalrymple
I tell my kids and I tell proteges, always have humility when you create and grace when you succeed, because it’s not about you. You are a terminal for a higher power. As soon as you accept that, you can do it forever.
Quincy Jones
It is a very rare thing for a man of talent to succeed by his talent.
Joseph Roux
The Jesuits had learned that a Christian mission to China could never succeed if it were not in a position to show and convince the Chinese intelligentsia of the superiority of the European culture.
Hu Shih
When I first reviewed the iPad, I wrote that, to succeed, ‘It will have to prove that it really can replace the laptop or netbook for enough common tasks, enough of the time, to make it a viable alternative.’
Walt Mossberg
If you’ve climbed the first 140 meters it doesn’t mean that you’ve succeeded; you are going to succeed by climbing the last 10 meters.
Alain Robert
I will let my daughter do whatever her heart wants. I will support her and guide her and give her all the knowledge that I have because I want her to succeed in whatever she loves.
The Miz
People who succeed in my job are people who are not afraid to look silly.
Aisling Bea
Women should not have to adopt masculine traits in order to succeed. You should be able to stay as a woman, and in tune with your femininity, and still be equal.
Isla Fisher
To succeed in business, to reach the top, an individual must know all it is possible to know about that business.
J. Paul Getty
I want to prove that you don’t have to come from Oxford University or Rada – and you don’t have to have parents that support you – to succeed.
Samantha Morton
I was obliged to be industrious. Whoever is equally industrious will succeed equally well.
Johann Sebastian Bach
On a human level, people want to see someone succeed who wants to change.
Danny McBride
We believe a renewed commitment to limited government w

We believe a renewed commitment to limited government will unshackle our economy and create millions of new jobs and opportunities for all people, of every background, to succeed and prosper. Under this approach, the spirit of initiative – not political clout – determines who succeeds.
Paul Ryan
For a true writer, each book should be a new beginning where he tries again for something that is beyond attainment. He should always try for something that has never been done or that others have tried and failed. Then sometimes, with great luck, he will succeed.
Ernest Hemingway
The attitude of the people proves that not only do we want to, but that we can succeed in pulling our country out of the difficult position it finds itself in. The banking system of our country will survive and grow.
Nicos Anastasiades
Affairs that depend on many rarely succeed.
Francesco Guicciardini
We do not succeed in changing things according to our desire, but gradually our desire changes.
Marcel Proust
Not many people get to the major leagues and succeed right away. There are some struggles. Everyone seems to struggle.
George Brett
They’re definitely having their moment now because they know how to work the system, and I know I have to be that way, too, in order to succeed. But it’s never been more frustrating for me.
Rose McGowan
Success is counted sweetest by those who never succeed.
Emily Dickinson
At the end of the day, both men and women who become CEOs have showed tenacity and hard work to succeed in their careers. It takes not just skills but also extreme dedication and commitment. And regardless of gender, CEOs are measured by the same criteria – the growth and success of the business.
Susan Wojcicki
Prince Philippe is well prepared to succeed me.
Albert II of Belgium
Let those men who still have these misguided ideas, let those men who still have these hallucinations, realize that by anarchism, by dastardly crimes, they cannot bring about good government; let them realize that these methods have not succeeded in any country of the world and are not likely to succeed in India.
Muhammad Ali Jinnah
In the real world, answers may not be clear cut. There will be messy choices, and you’re not going to be able to construct a policy response in a neat and tidy way. Being able to listen to other people, even as you stay true to your principles, that’s how you actually succeed.
Jake Sullivan
It’s important for parents to be strict if you want the kids to succeed.
Geeta Phogat
Unless a man enters upon the vocation intended for him by nature, and best suited to his peculiar genius, he cannot succeed. I am glad to believe that the majority of persons do find their right vocation.
P. T. Barnum
Stand in a way that you are always empowering people to join in, because the only way to be truly successful is not to succeed as an individual, but to succeed as a part of a community, of a country.
Cory Booker
That is still the case in this country for too many students, the soft bigotry of low expectations. If you don’t expect them to learn, if you don’t expect them to succeed – then it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Tavis Smiley
I think being optimistic is ensuring your success. If you start out saying ‘I’ve got this problem,’ or ‘I’m angry at that,’ you will not succeed.
George Takei
The Time to Succeed Coalition brings together an unprecedented group of leaders from education and business, communities and academia to say that it is time to strike the shackles of an outdated school calendar from our disadvantaged schools.
Chris Gabrieli
To know a man, observe how he wins his object, rather than how he loses it; for when we fail, our pride supports us – when we succeed, it betrays us.
Charles Caleb Colton
I have a five year-old son and a three year-old daughter. I want my son to have a choice to contribute fully in the workforce or at home. And I want my daughter to have the choice to not just succeed, but to be liked for her accomplishments.
Sheryl Sandberg
There is this idea that you have to play heroines or women who succeed.
Isabella Rossellini
As a privileged survivor of the First World War, I hope I may be allowed to interject here a deeply felt tribute to those who were not fortunate enough to succeed, but who shared the signal honor of trying to the last to salvage peace.
Rene Cassin
Bill Clinton wanted to survive. And Bill Clinton wanted to thrive, not just for himself, although that’s primarily what drives Bill Clinton. He’s a classic narcissist. So of course he wanted to thrive and succeed. But he also wanted America to thrive and succeed, which is why he worked with a Republican Congress.
Monica Crowley
The unrestricted competition so commonly advocated does not leave us the survival of the fittest. The unscrupulous succeed best in accumulating wealth.
Rutherford B. Hayes
Korean students are hard working, talented, and they do what they need to do. They succeed in exams. They are highly motivated to succeed in tests.
Dan Shechtman
Half the things that people do not succeed in are through fear of making the attempt.
James Northcote
Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.
Henry David Thoreau
Since I was 18, I’ve been under orders from magazines and newspapers – chiefly The New York Times and Rolling Stone – to step into the lives of musicians, actors, and artists, and somehow find out who they really are underneath the mask they present to the public. But I didn’t always succeed.
Neil Strauss
I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
Michael Jordan
Our business in life is not to succeed, but to continue to fail in good spirits.
Robert Louis Stevenson
We have to instill in them the skills they need to succeed at a young age and open up their imaginations to the very real opportunities they can be afforded if they put their minds to it.
Michael N. Castle
Social movements rarely succeed if they violate our gut

Social movements rarely succeed if they violate our gut sense of decency and moral proportion.
Bret Stephens
Few revolutions succeed, and when they do, you often discover they did not gain what you hoped for, and you condemn yourself to perpetual fear, as the parties you defeated may always regain power and work for your ruin.
Francesco Guicciardini
I’d rather be thought as an international actress rather than a French one. Because I don’t know what’s coming up for me, my ambition is not to be typecast. So I’m working on my English accent, as well as my American one. I don’t want to be like ‘Okay, I’m French, and I want to succeed in Hollywood!’
Eva Green
It takes a lot more than just knowing how to put an outfit together to succeed in the fashion industry, so more power to you if this is where you want to be; just don’t expect it to be an extended trip to the mall.
Sophia Amoruso
I hope that 9/11 has grouped us as one, and in doing so it has united us. Perhaps as a unit we can help each other get ahead, survive and succeed in this free world. And hey guys, let’s not forget out manners!!
Doug Davidson
I like to say that the one thing that all people who succeed in changing the world have in common is that they at least tried.
Kevin Systrom
An empowered organisation is one in which individuals have the knowledge, skill, desire, and opportunity to personally succeed in a way that leads to collective organisational success.
Stephen Covey
Being genuinely humble and being myself has helped me succeed in my career.
Poo Bear
Yes, we can do business in Nepal and still succeed. That is what I proved.
Binod Chaudhary
I believe that a good comic script can succeed despite being drawn badly, but that a bad script can’t be saved by good art. Of course, great writing and great illustration makes for a great comic 100 percent of the time.
Ryan North
I am fully aware that everybody has a right to succeed, and success should be with ethics.
Sharad Pawar
One thing I love about guards in this league is that you can be a 5-foot-9 pit bull or a methodical 6-foot-7 jump-shooter, and still succeed in your own way.
C. J. McCollum
When it came to my childhood – growing up in a single-parent home, often struggling financially – my mother definitely instilled in me and my siblings this strength, this will, to just continue to survive and succeed.
Misty Copeland
Commercial success still hasn’t come to an artist that isn’t signed to a record label. There are very few artists that can succeed without the help of a record label. The role of the record label is still required, it’s still necessary.
Edgar Bronfman, Jr.
If Vancouver did not succeed as Starbucks from ’87 on, our entire international business, which is now thousands of stores and a significant amount of growth and profit, may not have existed.
Howard Schultz
If you’re glued together right and honorable, you will succeed. Get in there and get rid of stupidities and avoid bad people. Try teaching that to your grandchildren. The best way is by example. Fix yourself.
Charlie Munger
I want everybody to succeed. It’s just part of who I am. I probably do that with my kids tenfold. I’m as insecure as the next person, but it doesn’t ever take me over.
Lisa Rinna
Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.
Abraham Lincoln
Sometimes it seems that we are successful only because we have not tried hard enough for our best. We do the hard thing, and one day we succeed, and many things are made plain to us.
Maude Adams
A man will succeed in anything about which he has real enthusiasm, in which he is genuinely interested, provided that he will take more thought about his job than the men working with him. The fellow who sits still and does what he is told will never be told to do big things.
Charles M. Schwab
We don’t see that the Taliban ultimately can succeed, and it’s a combination both of what the international community can do to support Afghanistan, not just in the short term, but over the long term.
John R. Allen
Life is the art of being well deceived; and in order that the deception may succeed it must be habitual and uninterrupted.
William Hazlitt
I shall cheerfully bear the reproach of having descended below the dignity of history if I can succeed in placing before the English of the nineteenth century a true picture of the life of their ancestors.
Thomas Babington Macaulay
Lots of companies don’t succeed over time. What do they fundamentally do wrong? They usually miss the future.
Larry Page
Decency must be an even more exhausting state to maintain than its opposite. Those who succeed seem to need a stupefying amount of sleep.
Quentin Crisp
Sports and entertainment are the only places where inner-city kids see themselves being able to succeed. Their intellectual development is something they don’t relate to.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
I think the overwhelming majority of the American people know that we have got to stand together, that we’re going to grow together, that we’re going to survive together, and that if we start splintering, we’re not going to succeed in a highly competitive international economy.
Bernie Sanders
There is an element of luck, there is an element of trial and error, sometimes you fail, sometimes you succeed. It’s not as beautifully simple as it may seem when we are talking about it.
Lakhdar Brahimi
The death of the MG marks the end of one of the most perfect products of free enterprise, born out of the voracious will to succeed of one man and the burgeoning market for middle-class status symbols. The car first appeared as a souped-up Morris Oxford in 1923 when it won the Land’s End Rally.
Nick Davies
Your strike will not win. You cannot be allowed to succeed.
James Callaghan
Existence is the privilege of effort, and when that privilege is met like a man, opportunities to succeed along the line of your aptitude will come faster than you can use them.
Orison Swett Marden
How you succeed is how you deal with failure. Whatever

How you succeed is how you deal with failure. Whatever way you dress it up, something hasn’t worked.
Brendan Rodgers
I’m not an education expert, and frankly I don’t want to make education decisions for our state. But I am experienced at successfully managing organizations, and putting people on a path where they can succeed.
Linda Lingle
Art and science have so much in common – the process of trial and error, finding something new and innovative, and to experiment and succeed in a breakthrough.
Peter M. Brant
It takes a lot more energy to fail than to succeed, since it takes a lot of concentrated energy to hold on to beliefs that don’t work.
Jerry Gillies
When our kids are asked by their friends about the success of the longevity of our marriage, they simply joke that Tamar and I have spent so little time together that ‘it’s really too early to tell’ if our marriage will, in fact, succeed.
Patrick Pichette
It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.
Herman Melville
We have this myth that if you work hard, you can accomplish anything. It’s not a very American thing to say, but I don’t think that’s true. It’s true for a lot of people, but you need other things to succeed. You need luck, you need opportunity, and you need the life skills to recognize what an opportunity is.
David Lindsay-Abaire
People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.
Dale Carnegie
Surface R&B doesn’t work any more. The whole heartthrob thing, songs about unrealistic love and tearing your shirt off every show – that’s not really where it’s at any more. It’s becoming harder for those guys to sell records, and harder for them to succeed.
Drake
My husband and I believe that if you treat a child well and nurture his talent and physical ability, in a healthy environment, the child will succeed no matter what.
Dominique Moceanu
Bowling in sub-continental conditions is not easy for a fast bowler. You have to be consistent and persistent to succeed, especially when you are bowling to the likes of Sangakkara, Mahela, Samaraweera, and Dilshan.
S. Sreesanth
If at first you don’t succeed, find out if the loser gets anything.
William Lyon Phelps
Where there is a will there is a way. And this must be the way not of compulsion but of cooperation… No government and no plan can succeed without it.
Lionel Murphy
Someone once pulled me aside and said it was all right to succeed, and I realised that I knew what failure felt like, but I didn’t know what success felt like. I’ve carried that with me ever since.
Nick Frost
There are so many things about playing football that seem to me uniquely American. Anybody can succeed, anybody can play, but you’ve got to work hard to do it.
Dean Cain
I want a president with a record of public service: someone whose life’s work shows our children that we don’t chase form and fortune for ourselves; we fight to give everyone a chance to succeed.
Michelle Obama
The Hispanic community understands the American Dream and have not forgotten what they were promised – that in the U.S., a free market system, allows us all to succeed economically, achieve stability and security for your family and leave your children better off than yourselves.
Marco Rubio
Politicos talk a big game about bringing jobs to devastated cities like Detroit, but rarely succeed.
Bob Beckel
We’re in the same company as 2NE1 and we get our songs from the same producers, so the influence is natural. Since they’ve done a lot of things before us, we want to emulate them. But at the same time, we hope there will soon be an opportunity to show our own unique color. We want to succeed with our own unique color.
Lisa
I had great football players. To be quite truthful, my great football players, the ones who wanted the ball at the end of the games, they weren’t focused on money. They want to do something great. They want to go to Pro Bowls. They want to win Super Bowls. Those are the people that succeed in sports – or in business.
Joe Gibbs
It is even possible that laws which have not their origin in the mind may be irrational, and we can never succeed in formulating them.
Arthur Eddington
Worrying about the past or the future isn’t productive. When you start chastising yourself for past mistakes, or seeing disaster around every corner, stop and take a breath and ask yourself what you can do right now to succeed.
Harvey Mackay
If you’re not hopeful and optimistic, then you just give up. You have to take the long hard look and just believe that if you’re consistent, you will succeed.
John Lewis
I was going to show my kids that no matter what happened with their parents, parole officers and other teachers, I wouldn’t give up on them. I let them know it matters to me that you come to class, it matters to me that you try, it matters to me when you succeed.
Erin Gruwell
If you want to succeed at any job, make yourself invaluable. Go the extra mile; make them never be able to imagine what life without you there would be like.
Ross Mathews
I would never know how good I was if I didn’t have Bob Arum. Bob Arum is white, Jewish; He was working for prosecutor’s office. I’m black, an ex-convict, ex-number runner. Who would be most likely to succeed? It would be Bob 100-1. Yet I beat Bob on everything we ever done, with love.
Don King
If you will work in co-operation, forgetting the past, burying the hatchet, you are bound to succeed.
Muhammad Ali Jinnah
I wouldn’t succeed at musical theater.
David Duchovny
The Left despises Texas, with its stellar record of job growth; Texas, with its strong support for traditional marriage and the sanctity of life; Texas, the root of the conservative tree. Should the Left succeed in its attempt to turn Texas purple, America could turn permanently blue.
Ben Shapiro
I work as hard as anybody will ever work and I like that. That’s why I’ve been successful and that is when I feel good about myself. If I do my damnedest and don’t succeed, I feel good about the effort.
Mark Wahlberg
We had a mission at PayPal – which was to create a new financial system, a new world currency, and we failed. We were a financial success, but we didn’t succeed at the purpose of our company.
Luke Nosek
My goal is not to create a circumstance in which no one

My goal is not to create a circumstance in which no one fails, but one in which many will succeed.
Jerry Moran
I have met many entrepreneurs who have the passion and even the work ethic to succeed – but who are so obsessed with an idea that they don’t see its obvious flaws. Think about that. If you can’t even acknowledge your failures, how can you cut the rope and move on?
Kevin O’Leary
Kids are starting at such a low base rate in terms of fitness that it’s taking them years to catch up to where people like me started from. Every little bit is making it more difficult for kids to succeed on a world stage.
Daley Thompson
The presidency made John Adams an old man long before there was television. As early as the nation’s first contested presidential election, with Adams and Jefferson running to succeed Washington, you had a brutal, ugly, vicious campaign that was divisive and as partisan as anything we’re experiencing today.
R. J. Cutler
The only way anyone’s going to succeed is to build the product.
Barry Diller
You want to close the income inequality gap in part? Give us better educated kids out of high school. Give us kids that can challenge and succeed in the challenge with technology. You give us those kinds of kids, and watch the needle move.
Kenneth Langone
If at first you don’t succeed, blame your parents.
Marcelene Cox
I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but by the number of times I succeed; and the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times I can fail and keep on trying.
Tom Hopkins
Success in the majority of circumstances depends on knowing how long it takes to succeed.
Montesquieu
I am ready to accept all accusations, allegations, anger – but I have to succeed.
Boris Trajkovski
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
Thomas A. Edison
It is education that will arm us with the tools that will enable us to succeed and put a stop to the rising rates of preventable death.
Christy Turlington
I think, team first. It allows me to succeed, it allows my team to succeed.
LeBron James
The best shows succeed because they tap into a national conversation.
Damian Lewis
The hardships that I encountered in the past will help me succeed in the future.
Philip Emeagwali
Do your work with your whole heart, and you will succeed – there’s so little competition.
Elbert Hubbard
Whether you’re playing sports, starting a business or anything else in life, you need to identify your talents. Your responsibility is to find what you do better than anyone else. Once you identify what that is, you need to put yourself in the best position to succeed.
B. J. Armstrong
If your city’s being populated by highly educated twentysomethings with choices, you’re probably going to succeed.
Mick Cornett
Socialists make the mistake of confusing individual worth with success. They believe you cannot allow people to succeed in case those who fail feel worthless.
Kenneth Baker
Obviously, if a director doesn’t communicative a clear, relevant vision of the material, it will not succeed no matter how good the material.
Tom Skerritt
I think that you have to believe in your destiny; that you will succeed, you will meet a lot of rejection and it is not always a straight path, there will be detours – so enjoy the view.
Michael York
Beware of endeavoring to become a great man in a hurry. One such attempt in ten thousand may succeed. These are fearful odds.
Benjamin Disraeli
Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.
Maria Montessori
I want everybody to succeed.
Ayesha Curry
The freedom to fail is vital if you’re going to succeed. Most successful people fail from time to time, and it is a measure of their strength that failure merely propels them into some new attempt at success.
Michael Korda
You have to focus on the future and know that you can succeed in life, and you have to keep working hard.
Dele Alli
When I was in high school, I was voted most likely to succeed.
Sheryl Sandberg
To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone.
Reba McEntire
Rock and roll’s relatively new, in the sense of the Fifties, Sixties, right? They invented the first sort of rock stars, and they took it to excess, and then the excess became bitter, tormented. Then it became okay to succeed.
Albert Hammond, Jr.
The wish to acquire more is admittedly a very natural and common thing; and when men succeed in this they are always praised rather than condemned. But when they lack the ability to do so and yet want to acquire more at all costs, they deserve condemnation for their mistakes.
Niccolo Machiavelli
Your willingness to fail is what will let you succeed.
Vinod Khosla
Google Ventures has a direct financial incentive to ens

Google Ventures has a direct financial incentive to ensure the companies we invest in succeed.
Bill Maris
Well it’s hard to bracket it like that because everyone always thinks you either go to America and you come back, fail or succeed, but it doesn’t work like that.
Anna Friel
A startup is literally just a series of unfortunate events where you failed, failed, failed, and failed until you succeed.
Adam Draper
To me, obstacles in life build character. You have to be able to overcome adversity in order to succeed and appreciate the simple things life has to offer… that’s where most of my inspiration for writing and singing comes from.
Elliott Yamin
If you want to succeed, you have to take the necessary risks and the occasional leap in the dark.
Tom Payne
I am still far from being what I want to be, but with God’s help I shall succeed.
Vincent Van Gogh
Despite my emphasis on technology, I do not view laws as inherently evil. My goals are political ones, even if my techniques are not. The only way to fundamentally succeed is by changing existing laws. If I rejected all help from the political arena I would inevitably fail.
Bram Cohen
With the Spirit and magnifying your call, you can do miracles for the Lord in the mission field. Without the Spirit, you will never succeed, regardless of your talent and ability.
Ezra Taft Benson
You do not succeed because you do not know what you want, but because you don’t want it intensely enough.
Frank Crane
Teach success before teaching responsibility. Teach them to believe in themselves. Teach them to think, ‘I’m not stupid’. No child wants to fail. Everyone wants to succeed.
Al Green
I admire writers who succeed at what I consider the first demand of art: that the artist vivisect himself without pity, without hesitation, determined to reveal whatever he might find.
Kathryn Harrison
If the tanks succeed, then victory follows.
Heinz Guderian
It takes a lot of dedication to quit smoking, and whether you give up for good on your first try or have to give it a couple of tries – just keep swinging at it and you will succeed.
Harmon Killebrew
Like any other entertainment medium, we must create an emotional response in order to succeed. Laughter, fear, joy, affection, surprise, and – most of all – accomplishment. In the end, triggering these feelings from our players is the true judgment of our work. This is the bottom line measurement of success.
Satoru Iwata
No leader, however strong, can succeed at anything of national importance or significance unless he has the support and cooperation of the people he is tasked to lead and sworn to serve.
Rodrigo Duterte
If we want boys to succeed, we need to bring them back to education by making education relevant to them and bring in more service learning and vocational education.
Michael Gurian
Any quarterback that understands what the offense is really about is going to succeed.
Joe Montana
We have a harder way to succeed in life as Serbs because of the past that we had and because of the history we had.
Novak Djokovic
If men do not now succeed in abolishing war, civilization and mankind are doomed.
Ludwig von Mises
Something that’s fun for me is a challenge. When you have a challenge and you take on that challenge and succeed, that’s the best feeling.
Amy Lee
It’s really important that we have an ecosystem where small innovative entrepreneurs can develop new products and access consumers and have a chance to succeed.
Julius Genachowski
The Anthropologie brand continues to succeed in emotionally engaging its customers while delivering strong financial results.
Richard Hayne
It’s a privilege to serve in Washington, D.C., but I never lose sight of what the Lord has called me to do in my life. And that is to be, first a husband, and then a father, and succeed there from His perspective, and He’ll take care of everything else.
Mike Pence
You cannot tell the enemy you’re going to leave and expect the enemy to not – and expect to succeed. I mean, that’s just a fundamental of warfare.
John McCain
Never say that your life is to be a singer. You want to sing because it’s a part of your life. But if you don’t succeed as a singer, it doesn’t mean you don’t have a life and it’s over.
Celine Dion
We do not live to think, but, on the contrary, we think in order that we may succeed in surviving.
Jose Ortega y Gasset
People’s mouse clicks decide what businesses, services, and content succeed. Users have equal access to tiny businesses with viral ideas and blue-chip companies, allowing these enterprises to compete on their own merits. It’s how so many small start-ups have been able to become Internet success stories.
Chellie Pingree
In this business, you have to have what they call an idiotic determination to succeed.
David Jason
I’m not scared of anything in particular, but I am motivated by a fear of failure as opposed to a need to succeed.
Heston Blumenthal
I believe democracy will succeed in Tunisia, but I also believe that it will succeed in the other Arab Spring countries.
Rashid al-Ghannushi
Regard every suggestion that your life may be a failure, that you are not made like those who succeed, and that success is not for you, as a traitor, and expel it from your mind as you would a thief from your house.
Orison Swett Marden
I've learned to think, I may succeed or fail, but I'm g

I’ve learned to think, I may succeed or fail, but I’m going to do so on the merit of my own instincts.
Ben Affleck
To succeed, you need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you, something to inspire you.
Tony Dorsett
In the business world today, failure is apparently not an option. We need to change this attitude toward failure – and celebrate the idea that only by falling on our collective business faces do we learn enough to succeed down the road.
Naveen Jain
I’ve always believed I could create the circumstances to succeed.
Philip Anschutz
Sometimes you can do all the right things and not succeed. And that’s a hard lesson of reality.
Donna Tartt
I’ve got my own businesses I run every day and I like to think I’m a nurturer rather than a firer, but the reality is, if somebody continues not to succeed and do the right thing for the business they lose the job because they are affecting the livelihoods of others.
Peter Jones
I’m getting more towards that point where I’m ready to kind of pass the torch on and see the next generation succeed behind me.

If at first you don’t succeed, get a bigger hammer.
Alan Lewis
What is important is the victory of the people, not of a candidate. We must unite for the good of Madagascar’s people, and we are going to succeed.
Andry Rajoelina
My father was Abe Burrows, who was a Broadway legend. ‘Guys and Dolls,’ ‘How to Succeed,’ ‘Cactus Flower,’ ’40 Karats,’ ‘Can-Can,’ ‘Happy Hunting,’ ‘Reclining Figure,’ it goes on. He was a legend, and when I was growing up, I was Abe Burrows’ kid. That was my self-esteem.

Dan Hill
Men are born to succeed, not to fail.
Henry David Thoreau

Shahid Kapoor
My role is to try to remove the impediments to entrepreneurs’ chance to succeed. It’s about improving the business climate to give people a better chance of succeeding.
Jerry Moran
Don’t let the opinions of the average man sway you. Dream, and he thinks you’re crazy. Succeed, and he thinks you’re lucky. Acquire wealth, and he thinks you’re greedy. Pay no attention. He simply doesn’t understand.
Robert G. Allen
I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.
Abraham Lincoln
The truth is that most small businesses will not succeed and you need to be emotionally prepared for this.
Benjamin Cohen
To be a parent, you must be authoritarian. If the Zambians want to succeed, they must learn to work hard, and they should not expect to be treated with kid gloves.
Michael Sata
Roaring like a tiger turns some children into pianists who debut at Carnegie Hall but only crushes others. Coddling gives some the excuse to fail and others the chance to succeed.
Ayelet Waldman
Every child in every neighborhood, of every color, class and background, deserves a school that will help them succeed.
Rand Paul
Saddam’s goal is to achieve the lifting of U.N. sanctions while retaining and enhancing Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction programs. We cannot, we must not and we will not let him succeed.

Rory Kinnear
The bosses of our mass media, press, radio, film and television, succeed in their aim of taking our minds off disaster. Thus, the distraction they offer demands the antidote of maximum concentration on disaster.
Ernst Fischer
As Liberal Democrats and proponents of federalism, we must put our heads above the parapet and recapture and disseminate the true meaning of federalism. We have to win the vocabulary before we succeed in the vision.

I agree with Sophocles: the greatest luck is not to hav

I agree with Sophocles: the greatest luck is not to have been born – but, as the joke goes on, very few people succeed in it.
Slavoj Zizek
People with goals succeed because they know where they’re going.
Earl Nightingale
If we go in the Middle East, and we start to recruit there, and we see that all of a sudden there’s this massive interest, there’s massive depth of people that we feel have the ability to succeed, then we would go there first – or quicker.
Triple H
The marketplace judges technologies by their practical effectiveness, by whether they succeed or fail to do the job they are designed to do.

Orison Swett Marden
Pain and pleasure, like light and darkness, succeed each other.

Elaine Chao
I must firmly adhere to the views I have held and practice, that Socialism to succeed must be practical, tolerant, cohesive and consciously compromising with Progressive forces running, if not so far, in parallel lines towards its own goal.
John Burns
People who wish to go into the future should have two skills to succeed – the ability to deal with people and the ability to sell.
Shiv Khera
We’re all in this together – when one writer succeeds, all writers succeed. I love discovering new authors. I think we need to take care of each other and talk about craft and nurture talent.
Lisa Gardner
I’m hopeful. I know there is a lot of ambition in Washington, obviously. But I hope the ambitious realize that they are more likely to succeed with success as opposed to failure.
George W. Bush
Observe, orient, decide, act. It’s fighter pilot terminology. If you have the faster OODA loop in a dogfight, you live. The other person dies. In Silicon Valley, the OODA loop of your decision-making is effectively what differentiates your ability to succeed.
Reid Hoffman
However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.
Stephen Hawking
I will do everything I can in future to help this great country succeed.
David Cameron
The difference between a Democrat and Republican is that Democrats fight to make sure everybody has an opportunity to succeed, and the Republicans are strangled by their right-wing extremists.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
When I was elected to Congress, this was the No. 1 issue businesses brought up. They said that if we want this country to succeed, we need immigration reform.
Elizabeth Esty
Businesses succeed when societies themselves succeed. When countries are affected by violence and the absence of the rule of law, business can and must be a messenger of peace.
Ban Ki-moon
I am not aware how you succeed politically when you insult women, who far more than men consistently provide you with great margins of support.
Bernie Sanders

Bruce Buffer
Life is a succession of moments, to live each one is to succeed.
Corita Kent
When I heard that there were artists, I wished I could some time be one. If I could only make a rose bloom on paper, I thought I should be happy! Or if I could at last succeed in drawing the outline of winter-stripped boughs as I saw them against the sky, it seemed to me that I should be willing to spend years in trying.
Lucy Larcom
I consider myself fortunate to have grown up in Brooklyn. It’s what gave me my drive to succeed, the upward mobility I’ve been after my whole life.
Ian Schrager
As kids we’re not taught how to deal with success; we’re taught how to deal with failure. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. If at first you succeed, then what?
Charlie Sheen
Thus times do shift, each thing his turn does hold; New things succeed, as former things grow old.
Robert Herrick
When you want to succeed as bad as you want breathe, then you will be successful.
Eric D. Thomas
All of us, in a sense, struggle continuously all the time, because we never get what we want. The important thing which I’ve really learned is how do you not give up, because you never succeed in the first attempt.
Mukesh Ambani
Work for something because it is good, not just because it stands a chance to succeed.
Vaclav Havel
Emotional intelligence is a very important skill set, not just to be happier but also to succeed professionally.
Daniel Lubetzky

Daniel Suarez
I always knew that we were going to be successful and a

I always knew that we were going to be successful and accomplish and succeed at our dreams. There was never a doubt in my mind. When we were recording ‘Appetite For Destruction’, we all knew.

No man has a right to expect to succeed in life unless he understands his business, and nobody can understand his business thoroughly unless he learns it by personal application and experience.
P. T. Barnum
If we did not have a sense of who we were, how we got here, why we want to achieve something – which, on the face of it, on the logic of it, is probably not worth trying – and prove that logic wrong, then you wouldn’t succeed; then you would just evaporate.
Lee Hsien Loong
I’ve learned that for Indian people, the opportunity for us to succeed is very slim. So acting was a great tool for that. And in the process of learning about my culture, I’ve learned how to connect myself again to my ancestors.
Adam Beach
Who’s more likely to succeed – someone with high skill and no ambition, or no skill and high ambition? If you’re an entrepreneur, you can hire as many skilled people for your business as you want.
Max McKeown
If Al Jazeera America becomes just another mainstream TV station, it is definitely not going to succeed.
Wadah Khanfar
I go to assume a task more difficult than that which devolved upon Washington.

Abraham Lincoln
But when ill indeed, Even dismissing the doctor don’t always succeed.
Victor Hugo

Joe Torre
Small businesses are the number one job creators in America. Therefore, it is important that the federal government creates an environment that helps them succeed, not one that sets them up to fail.
Randy Neugebauer
If you’re at school, children who play football, you give everything to win… If you don’t succeed, that’s a huge disappointment. Then it’s okay to be sad, but better times are coming.
Arjen Robben
In order to succeed, you have to fail, no? You ride a bicycle, you fail; you try a few times, you succeed.
Jacques Torres
You can choose your family sometimes. You can choose people, it could be a teacher, it could be a professor, it could be someone you work with that actually genuinely cares about you and wants you to succeed.
Nicolas Cage
The man who will use his skill and constructive imagination to see how much he can give for a dollar, instead of how little he can give for a dollar, is bound to succeed.
Henry Ford
People ask why there are so few female artists who succeed. It’s because women are not ready to sacrifice as much as men. Women want a man, they want a family, they want to have children, they want to be loved, and to be an artist. And they can’t; it’s impossible.
Marina Abramovic
It’s fundamental to succeed in coming into contact with your subject. Whether it’s a big Hollywood star or a passer-by in the street, it makes no difference.

France is delighted at this new opportunity to show the world that when one has the will one can succeed in joining peoples who have been brought close by history.

My message to students is that if you want to become an entrepreneur and save the world, definitely don’t skip college. But go to a school that you can afford. You’ll be freed from the chains of debt and succeed on your own ambition and merit.
Vivek Wadhwa
To succeed in big-city politics requires a powerful, motivating vision of a better world, a plan to get there, a willingness to meet constituents on their terms, and a tough political skin.

Juliana Hatfield
Make each day count by setting specific goals to succeed, then putting forth every effort to exceed your own expectations.
Les Brown
It is not only our duty to America, but also to Ireland. We could not hope to succeed in our effort to make Ireland a Republic without the moral and material support of the liberty-loving citizens of these United States.
Thomas Francis Meagher
Companies that grow for the sake of growth or that expand into areas outside their core business strategy often stumble. On the other hand, companies that build scale for the benefit of their customers and shareholders more often succeed over time.
Jamie Dimon
I decided long ago never to walk in anyone’s shadow; if I fail, or if I succeed at least I did as I believe.
Whitney Houston
We’re giving our freedoms away. The American experiment was about freedom. Freedom to be stupid, freedom to fail, freedom to succeed.
Glenn Beck
I see in industrialization the central problem of building in our time. If we succeed in carrying out this industrialization, the social, economic, technical, and also artistic problems will be readily solved.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
The Palestinians want a state, but they have to give pe

The Palestinians want a state, but they have to give peace in return. What they’re trying to do in the United Nations is to get a state without giving Israel peace or giving Israel peace and security. And I think that’s, that’s wrong. That should not succeed. That should, that should fail.
Benjamin Netanyahu
The question whether the long effort to put an end to war can succeed without another major convulsion challenges not only our minds but our sense of responsibility.
Emily Greene Balch

Meghan Markle
Youth all over the world are very hungry to succeed.
Patrice Motsepe
It was a big deal to leave home and my culture and my language. But I believed that in America, I could truly reap what I sowed and that the measure of a man was his ability and determination to succeed. This was the land of boundless opportunity.
Thomas Peterffy
I never thought I wouldn’t succeed. Not because I thought I was good-looking – I just thought I would make it.
Babette March
There are a ton of qualities that can help you succeed, and the more carefully a quality has been studied, the more you know it’s worth your time and energy.
Travis Bradberry
To succeed at selling a losing product, you must develop seriously superior sales techniques. In addition, you have to be massively competitive and incredibly hungry to survive in that environment.

Scott Cook
The best thing we can do to help small-business owners succeed is cut spending.
Sam Graves
It is in our genes that we think of breaking up when we love and of failure and fall when we succeed.
RM
Voters must have faith in the electoral process for our democracy to succeed.

Bill Cosby
You can’t succeed in beating the insurgents unless you can convince the people that they can be protected.

Tablo
Many people ask, ‘What do you need mentally to succeed in F1?’ I say, ‘What do you mean mentally?’
Max Verstappen
Even if the last move did not succeed, the inner command says move again.
Seamus Heaney
That attitude that I wouldn’t succeed didn’t come from my family; it came from school and then the township we lived in. I wasn’t going to settle for that, and my mother warned us not to settle for less, to make the most of our lives.
Alexis Wright
The success of most things depends upon knowing how long it will take to succeed.
Montesquieu
I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.

Bruno Heller
If you wish to succeed in life, make perseverance your bosom friend, experience your wise counselor, caution your elder brother, and hope your guardian genius.
Joseph Addison
You don’t have to be born wealthy and have an aristocratic last name or have connections or all these things. If you have a dream, you can believe in something and work hard and struggle and fight for it and still have a chance to succeed.
Jeremy Scott
Middle America believes in fair play, an equal opportunity to succeed or to fail.
Mark McKinnon
Take life slowly and deliberately, making sure to acknowledge the people who have helped you succeed along the way.
Ted Levine
Running a school where the students all succeed, even if some students have to help others to make the grade, is good preparation for democracy.
William Glasser
Barack Obama’s enemies are the people who make this country work. Barack Obama’s enemies are those who succeed. Those are the people whose income he wants to redistribute. Those are the people whose income he wants to take, using the power and the force of the federal government to do it.
Rush Limbaugh
If you actually succeed in creating a utopia, you've cr

If you actually succeed in creating a utopia, you’ve created a world without conflict, in which everything is perfect. And if there’s no conflict, there are no stories worth telling – or reading!
Veronica Roth
We are not trying to prevent new clean energy businesses from succeeding. Any business that’s economical, that can succeed in the marketplace, any form of energy, we’re all for. As a matter of fact, we’re investing in quite a number of them, ourselves – whether that’s ethanol, renewable fuel oil.
Charles Koch
I’ve known ambitious people with no aptitude for the thing they did. Most of whom, rather terrifyingly, tended to succeed.
Neil Gaiman
You do feel bad when things don’t work. But you cannot succeed without failing. It goes hand-in-hand.
Vaani Kapoor
Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Mastered by deadly passions, Rigaud has dug a gulf at your feet; he has laid snares which you could not avoid. He wished to have you as partisans in his revolt; and to succeed in his object, he has employed falsehood and seduction.
Toussaint Louverture
Pretend that every single person you meet has a sign around his or her neck that says, ‘Make me feel important.’ Not only will you succeed in sales, you will succeed in life.

Bruce Wilkinson
America demands invention and innovation to succeed.
Kit Bond
In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can.
Nikos Kazantzakis
Any political agenda and organization which doesn’t begin with personal responsibility is just half the argument. It’s just not going to succeed.
Peter Coyote
The president can’t succeed without Congress, and Congress can’t succeed without the president. The image of one depends on the image of another. It is not a zero-sum game.
John Quelch
It was a real hand-to-mouth existence in those early days – I’d have whatever dry cereal there was in the house for breakfast, 30 cents to spend on lunch and a hot dog for dinner. I did that for years. So there was definitely a hunger in me, of various kinds, to succeed.
Neil Diamond
I know from personal experience how fear and low self worth can cripple one’s ability to succeed in life. But with a little support, caring and inspiration, miracles can happen.
Richard Hatch
We now live in the era of fake consensus, or phoney populism, a condition in which galleries and homes are seen to succeed best where they manage feelings of non-difference.
Andrew O’Hagan
The thing is, I always thought I could do stand-up, and so I just stayed focused on the belief that I could succeed.
Bo Burnham
You’ve got to be a disciplined person if you want to succeed both in sport and in life.
Lynn Davies
I actually believed if you work hard enough it was inevitable you’d succeed. Then I lived the ‘Social Network’ movie, but only the first half. The hardest part is the grueling work of constantly being wrong.
Eric Ries
To be an artist includes much; one must possess many gifts – absolute gifts – which have not been acquired by one’s own effort. And, moreover, to succeed, the artist much possess the courageous soul.
Kate Chopin
I think there’s something degrading about having a husband for a rival. It’s humiliating if you fail and commonplace if you succeed.
Christopher Hampton
I think that Christians who have an interest in filmmaking need to deepen their love for cinema. To be honest, that’s what I think has been missing historically from the Christians who want to succeed in the Hollywood industry.
Scott Derrickson
Love is an attempt at penetrating another being, but it can only succeed if the surrender is mutual.
Octavio Paz
I am a product of affirmative action. I am the perfect affirmative action baby. I am Puerto Rican, born and raised in the south Bronx. My test scores were not comparable to my colleagues at Princeton and Yale. Not so far off so that I wasn’t able to succeed at those institutions.
Sonia Sotomayor
I wanted to get out in the world, have a great job, make my mark, and see how far I could go. And I wanted to make good on the philosophy my mother drilled into us with all the subtlety of a Lady Gaga performance. I got it loud and clear. I would need to succeed, and then I could possibly be happy.
Karen Finerman
I don’t think it’s not feminist to use every tool you have to succeed, and part of that is being a woman – presenting yourself in a certain way.
Christina Hendricks
We have a big appetite for putting people down but, at the heart of everyone, there’s enough room for all of us to succeed.
Matthew McConaughey
Whatever you are by nature, keep to it; never desert your line of talent. Be what nature intended you for, and you will succeed.

G-Dragon
In both the world of fashion and politics, what’s required to succeed is passion, dedication, and vision.
R. J. Cutler
I’m still ambivalent about Hollywood. I think that’s why I made ‘Star 80.’ To deal with the ambivalence. I really wanted to succeed Gene Kelly, and I thought it was a fair bet.
Bob Fosse
Every man should make up his own mind that if he expect to succeed, he must give an honest return for the other man’s dollar.
Edward H. Harriman
The will to succeed is important, but what's more impor

The will to succeed is important, but what’s more important is the will to prepare.
Bobby Knight
To succeed in hockey, you need teamwork.
Henry Samueli
Would it be possible that I should not in any degree succeed? I can scarcely think so. Ah delusive hope, how much further wilt thou lead me?
John James Audubon
I would be very happy for a woman to succeed me.
Paul Kagame
No employer today is independent of those about him. He cannot succeed alone, no matter how great his ability or capital. Business today is more than ever a question of cooperation.
Orison Swett Marden
You have to risk failure to succeed. The important thing is not to make one single mistake that will jeopardize the future.
An Wang
Everywhere I go, I always look for creative entrepreneurs, whether it’s artisans and craftsmen, small farmers and gardeners, or restaurateurs who use fresh, locally sourced ingredients. I admire the courage and self-reliance it takes to start your own business and make it succeed.
Martha Stewart
If you don’t succeed on your own ground, then there’s no reason to succeed. Unless, of course, you really want a boat. If you’re a person who feels that with a yacht, everything will be all right, then you should do whatever you have to and get the yacht.
Albert Brooks
To compete in a global economy, our students must continue their education beyond high school. To make this expectation a reality, we must give students the tools they need to succeed, including the opportunity to take a college entrance exam.
Jennifer Granholm
I committed myself totally, fully, but I didn’t succeed in convincing a majority of French… I didn’t succeed in making the values we share win.
Nicolas Sarkozy
I don’t think that people don’t succeed; I think that it takes time! Everyone will have their time to shine!
JoJo Siwa
To succeed, jump as quickly at opportunities as you do at conclusions.
Benjamin Franklin
No sooner does an American president take his oath of office than the speculation begins: Will he be reelected in four years’ time? If not, who will succeed him? A member of his own party? The other party?
Gore Vidal
I wasn’t one of the ones voted most likely to succeed when I was at drama school, but I persevered and concentrated on the acting rather than going to the right parties and getting the right agent. Eventually, after ten years, it paid off.
Eddie Marsan
I learned that instead of relying on and imitating American music, there is a better chance for an Asian artist to succeed if he or she follows his or her own culture.
Rain
I’m sure that they will continue to look for ways to try and undermine my support, but I have every confidence that in doing this job for South Dakota, I will continue to build on my support and be able to succeed once again in November.
Stephanie Herseth
The easiest thing in the world is to succeed. You can’t help it if you follow the rules and play the game the best way you know how according to yourself, instead of according to the one next to you, or above you, or somewhere away from you.
George Matthew Adams
Whatever you believe in, and if you keep trying, you can eventually succeed.
William Hung
Common Core results finally give families an accurate barometer of whether our kids are mastering the skills they need to succeed in a knowledge-based global economy, early enough that we can intervene.
Wendy Kopp
The Washington black community was able to succeed beyond his wildest dreams. I mean, we had our own newspapers, our own restaurants, our own theaters, our own small shops, our own clubs, our own Masonic lodges.
Ed Smith
Because you’ve done the horrible jobs, it gives you an even grittier determination to succeed.
Rob James-Collier
The road is still very long. We want to concentrate for now on manufacturing in the U.S. If I don’t succeed, my son will continue with it. If he doesn’t make it, my grandson will.
Lu Guanqiu
I’ve got family, people that really care and want to see me succeed and push me.
Aaron Donald
If at first you don’t succeed, failure may be your style.
Quentin Crisp
Few things are impracticable in themselves; and it is for want of application, rather than of means, that men fail to succeed.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
We’ve become a country that is often risk averse. That’s not the way to succeed.
Jerry Moran
I think Barack Obama has brought a new level of ethical standards to Washington. Has he changed some basic hard-knuckle politics? No. You need hard-knuckle politics to succeed.
Ed Rendell
In 1995, the Chinese government picked a 6-year-old child to succeed the Panchen Lama, the second highest figure in Tibetan Buddhism.
Barbara Demick
I was born in Corpus Christi, Texas, the youngest of four girls, including my oldest sister, Lisa, who has special needs. My mom was a special education teacher, and my dad worked on the Army base. We weren’t wealthy, but we were determined to succeed.
Eva Longoria
I think the most important trait for an entrepreneur is persistence. When you try to do something new and difficult, you are more likely to fail than to succeed.
Trip Adler
I think I can bring a lot to the triangle offense. Derek Fisher wasn’t the tallest guard, but what he did is succeed and have a great career. I’m looking forward to learning from him. I’ve never played in the system, so I want to get there early.
Shane Larkin
In the whole course of our work at the theatre we have

In the whole course of our work at the theatre we have been, I may say, drenched with advice by friendly people who for years gave us the reasons why we did not succeed… All their advice, or at least some of it, might have been good if we had wanted to make money, to make a common place of amusement.
Lady Gregory
I still take losing out very seriously. But it inspires me that much more to move on. Quite often in my business, it’s not the most talented people that succeed. Because they don’t necessarily have the tenacity to deal with rejection.
Ryan Kwanten
Since I carry my father’s name, I believe it is my responsibility to use that name as he would have to support the causes that were so dear to his heart. Dad strongly supported Huckabee when no one thought that he had any chance to succeed in the presidential race.
Jerry Falwell, Jr.
There is common ground we can look towards and hopefully make this country better for all of us. That is what Joe for America means. I want more jobs. I want veterans to have better benefits and not have them taken away. I want people to succeed in this country and have the tools to do so.
Joe Wurzelbacher
My dad prepared me for the worst of times while also enabling me to succeed in the best. He taught me to confront the insidiousness of racism head on, no matter what the ramification, so it will not fester. Defeat it and get past it. That was The Talk. Nothing scared me after that.
Wendell Pierce
The most important thing in the programming language is the name. A language will not succeed without a good name. I have recently invented a very good name and now I am looking for a suitable language.
Donald Knuth
We fall forward to succeed.
Mary Kay Ash
Our party has known great, great days. But we have no God-given right to survive, let alone to succeed.
Francis Maude
Let’s just say that I feel I have the ambition and determination to succeed as a coach.
Gennaro Gattuso
Being responsible and taking care of your body is truly how you make your pay cheque, how you excel and succeed in your lifelong goals, so for me it’s just an everyday lifestyle.
Hope Solo
Our great power does not mean we can do whatever we want whenever we want, nor should we assume we have all the wisdom and knowledge necessary to succeed.
