    Just as a cautious businessman avoids investing all his capital in one concern, so wisdom would probably admonish us also not to anticipate all our happiness from one quarter alone.

    Success is not final,
    Failure is not fatal,
    it is the Courage to continue that counts.

    “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

    The men the American public admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars;
    the men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth.

    “Do you have a favourite saying?” asked the boy.
    “Yes, “ said mole. “If at first you don’t succeed, have some cake”

    Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success.

    “Do the things that interest you and do them with all your heart. Don't be concerned about whether people are watching you or criticizing you. The chances are that they aren't paying any attention to you. It's your attention to yourself that is so stultifying. But you have to disregard yourself as completely as possible. If you fail the first time then you'll just have to try harder the second time. After all, there's no real reason why you should fail. Just stop thinking about yourself.”
    ― Eleanor Roosevelt, You Learn by Living: Eleven Keys for a More Fulfilling Life
