Henry Ward Beecher

A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.
Francis Bacon



If you don't know where you are going,
you'll end up someplace else.

Yogi Berra

Our plans miscarry because they have no aim. When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind.
Seneca

In absence of clearly defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia.
Author Unknown

"The important thing in life is to have a great aim, and the determination to attain it." – Goethe

"Goals determine what you're going to be."
 Julius Erving

All our dreams can come true --if we have the courage to pursue them."
 Walt Disney

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
Calvin Coolidge
