Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
If you're going through hell, keep going.
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.
I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong
The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.
Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.
Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.
You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.
Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go.
Problems are guidelines, not stop signs!
Nobody trips over mountains. It is the small pebble that causes you to stumble. Pass all the pebbles in your path and you will find you have crossed the mountain. The mind does not create what it perceives, anymore than the eye creates the rose.
Never give up on something that you can't go a day without thinking about.
When the going gets tough, the tough get a librarian.
Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are.
When the going gets tough, the tough go drinking.
