"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined" by Henry David Thoreau.

"Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will" by Jawaharal Nehru.
"The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them" by Denis Watley
"If you don't have a dream, how are you going to make a dream come true?" by
"Life is like a library owned by the author.
In it are a few books which he wrote himself,

"The question for each man to settle is not what he would do if he had means, time, influence and educational advantages; the question is what he will do with the things he has. The moment a young man ceases to dream or to bemoan his lack of opportunities and resolutely looks his conditions in the face, and resolves to change them, he lays the corner-stone of a solid and honorable success" by Hamilton Wright Mabie.
"I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past" by Patrick Henry.
"All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible" by T.E. Lawrence.
"The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will" by Vince Lombardi.
"The man who makes a success of an important venture never wails for the crowd. He strikes out for himself. It takes nerve, it takes a great lot of grit; but the man that succeeds has both. Anyone can fail. The public admires the man who has enough confidence in himself to take a chance. These chances are the main things after all. The man who tries to succeed must expect to be criticized. Nothing important was ever done but the greater number consulted previously doubted the possibility. Success is the accomplishment of that which most people think can't be done" by C. V. White.
"Reputation is what men and women think of us; character is what God and angels know of us" by Thomas Paine.
"Character is a diamond that scratches every other stone" by Cyrus A. Bartol.
"Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live, as well as strong to think" by Ralph Waldo Emerson.
