“Not the Mountain We Conquer, But Ourselves”

 

“Give yourself an even greater challenge than the one you are trying to master and you will develop the powers necessary to overcome the original difficulty.”          (William Bennett)

 

 

“I am sure it is everyone’s experience, as it has been mine, that any discovery we make about ourselves or the meaning of life is never, like a scientific discovery, a coming upon something entirely new and unsuspected; it is rather, the coming to conscious recognition of something, which we really knew all the time but, because we were unwilling to formulate it correctly, we did not hitherto know we knew.”     (W. H. Auden)

 

 

“There is a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it.  No one is ready for a thing until he believes he can acquire it.  The state of mind must be belief, not mere hope or wish.  Open-mindedness is essential for belief.  Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage, or belief.”       (Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich)

 

 

“We all have possibilities we don’t know about.  We can do things we don’t even dream we can do.”       (Dale Carnegie)

 

 

“It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.”        (Sir Edmund Hillary)
