Rising Above Quotations
If a good person does you wrong, act as though you had not noticed it. They will make note of this and not remain in your debt long.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Success is not just the crowning moment, the spiking of the ball in the end zone or the raising of the flag on the summit. It is the whole process of reaching for a goal and, sometimes, it begins with failure.
Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven't half the strength you think they have.
Norman Vincent Peale
John R. Wooden
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.
Reflect upon your blessings, of which every man has plenty, not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
I believe that the rendering of useful service is the common duty of mankind and that only in the purifying fire of sacrifice is the dross of selfishness consumed and the greatness of the human soul set free.
John D. Rockefeller, Jr.
