Newton, Howard W.

Marden, Orison Swett

Superiority -- doing things a little better than anybody else can do them.
Marden, Orison Swett
The quality of expectations determines the quality of our action.
You can start right where you stand and apply the habit of going the extra mile by rendering more service and better service than you are now being paid for.
One of the most essential things you need to do for yourself is to choose a goal that is important to you. Perfection does not exist -- you can always do better and you can always grow.

The renown which riches or beauty confer is fleeting and frail; mental excellence is a splendid and lasting possession.
There is none who cannot teach somebody something, and there is none so excellent but he is excelled.
Whatever you do, don't do it halfway.
