All Quotations / Quotations from Earl Nightingale

Courage changes things for the better...With courage you can stay with something long enough to succeed at it, realizing that it usually takes two, three or four times as long to succeed as you thought or hoped.
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be - whether they will admit that or not.
Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal.
The man who succeeds above his fellows is the one who early in life clearly discerns his object, and towards that object habitually directs his powers.
We all walk in the dark and each of us must learn to turn on his or her own light.

Best Quotations

Herbert Hoover
"If anyone attempts to hall down the American flag shoot him on the spot."

John A. Dix
"A bird that you set free may be caught again, but a word that escapes your lips will not return."

Jewish Proverb
