“It’s Never Too Late to Be …”
“If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t!
If you want to win, but think you can’t,
It’s almost a cinch you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost;
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will;
It’s all in the state of the mind.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger and faster man,
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.” (Walter D. Wintle)
“Think that it’s fun, that you’re guided, and that all is well. Think that there’s time, that life is easy, and that the best is yet to come. Think that the reasons that elude you will one day catch up, that the lessons that have stumped you will one day bring joy, and that the sorrows that have crippled you will soon give you wings. Think that you’re important, that you cannot fail, and that happiness always returns. And think that you’re beautiful.” (‘Notes from the Universe,’ ©Mike Dooley)
“We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.” (George Bernard Shaw)
“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” (Antoine de Saint-Exupery)
“It is never too late to be what you might have been.” (George Eliot)
