Your worth consists in what you are and not in what you have.

What are you are will show in what you do.

There is no substitute for Hard work.

Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.

The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are: hard work, stick-to-itiveness, and common sense.

I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.

I have friends in overalls whose friendship I would not swap for the favor of the kings of the world.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

Many of life‘s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

There’s a better way to do it – find it.

The chief function of the body is to carry the brain around.

I never did a days work in my life. It was all fun.

Everything  comes to him who hustles while he waits.

I never did anything by accident, nor did any of my inventions come by accident; they came by work.

If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astonish ourselves.

Just because something doesn’t do what you planned it to do doesn’t mean it’s useless.

To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk.

The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will instruct his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet, and the cause and prevention of disease.

Restlessness is discontent and discontent is the first necessity of progress. Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure.

The value of an idea lies in the using of it.

Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.

Be courageous. I have seen many depressions in business. Always America has emerged from these stronger and more prosperous. Be brave as your fathers before you. Have faith! Go forward!

I know this world is ruled by infinite intelligence. Everything that surrounds us – everything that exists – proves that there are infinite laws behind it. There can be no denying this fact. It is mathematical in it’s precision.
