I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.
Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.
Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure.
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
Just because something doesn't do what you planned it to do doesn't mean it's useless.
Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.
