Rising Above Quotations
If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down, but the staying down.
There is neither happiness nor unhappiness in this world; there is merely the comparison of one state to the other. Only a man who has felt ultimate despair is capable of feeling ultimate bliss.
It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.
There are two ways of meeting difficulties. You alter the difficulties or you alter yourself to meet them.
People can do whatever they want if they just set their heart to it, and just never give up, and just go out there and do it.
