Gasset, Jose Ortega Y

Saint-Exupery, Antoine De

Stowe, Harriet Beecher
Have you ever watched a stonecutter at work? He will hammer away at a rock for perhaps a 100 times without a crack showing in it. Then, on the 101st blow, it will split in two. It is not that blow alone which accomplished the result, but the 100 others that went before as well.

The secret of the truly successful, I believe, is that they learned very early in life how not to be busy.

I want to be remembered as the guy who gave his all whenever he was on the field.
The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. [Ecclesiastes 9:11]
Do your duty, that is best; leave unto the Lord the rest.
Mckay, David O.
About the only thing that comes without effort is old age..
I've always tried to do my best on the ball field. I can't do any more than that. I always try to give one hundred percent; and if my team loses, I come back and give one hundred percent the next day.

For it is not by the possession, but the search after truth that he enlarges his power, wherein alone consists his ever-increasing perfection.
If a man has done his best, what else is there?
Patton, George S.

Easy DOESN'T do it.
Freedom from effort in the present merely means that there has been effort stored up in the past.
