“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”

Henry David Thoreau

G. K. Chesterton

“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.”

Robert Kiyosaki

“If you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.”

Steve Jobs

“The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.”

“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”

Jim Rohn

“I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure–It is: Try to please everybody.”

Herbert Bayard Swope

“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”
