Confidence quotes
Confidence
I never seek to defeat the man I am fighting, I seek to defeat his confidence. A mind troubled by doubt cannot focus on the course to victory. Two men are equals - true equals - only when they both have equal confidence.

- Arthur S. Golden
Mediocre people have an answer for everything and are astonished at nothing. They always want to have the air of knowing better than you what you are going to tell them; when, in their turn, they begin to speak, they repeat to you with the greatest confidence, as if dealing with their own property, the things that they have heard you say yourself at some other place. A capable and superior look is the natural accompaniment of this type of character.

- Delacroix, Eugene
The most vital quality a soldier can possess is self-confidence.

- Patton, George S.
It is only prudent never to place complete confidence in that by which we have even once been deceived.

- Rene Descartes
Confidence is the bond of friendship.

- Syrus, Publilius
In our consumer confidence surveys, we ask people whether they think government economic policy is good, fair, or poor. Increasingly, the answer we get is just plain laughter.

- Schmiedeskamp, Jay
Confidence is a plant of slow growth in an aged heart.

- Pitt, William
A marriage based on full confidence, based on complete and unqualified frankness on both sides; they are not keeping anything back; there's no deception underneath it all. If I might so put it, it's an agreement for the mutual forgiveness of sin.

- Ibsen, Henrik
Ninety-two percent of the stuff told you in confidence you couldn't get anyone else to listen to.

- Adams, Franklin P.
For the truth of the conclusions of physical science, observation is the supreme Court of Appeal. It does not follow that every item which we confidently accept as physical knowledge has actually been certified by the Court; our confidence is that it would be certified by the Court if it were submitted. But it does follow that every item of physical knowledge is of a form which might be submitted to the Court. It must be such that we can specify (although it may be impracticable to carry out) an observational procedure which would decide whether it is true or not. Clearly a statement cannot be tested by observation unless it is an assertion about the results of observation. Every item of physical knowledge must therefore be an assertion of what has been or would be the result of carrying out a specified observational procedure.

- Sir Arthur Eddington
Part of being a champ is acting like a champ. You have to learn how to win and not run away when you lose. Everyone has bad stretches and real successes. Either way, you have to be careful not to lose your confidence or get too confident.

- Kerrigan, Nancy
Bashfulness is an ornament to youth, but a reproach to old age.

- Aristotle
In all things preserve integrity; and the consciousness of thine own uprightness will alleviate the toil of business, soften the hardness of ill-success and disappointments, and give thee an humble confidence before God, when the ingratitude of man, or the iniquity of the times may rob thee of other rewards.

- Barbara Paley
Every failure made me more confident. Because I wanted even more to achieve as revenge. To show that I could.

- Polanski, Roman
I always thought I could play pro ball. I had confidence in my ability, You have to. If you don't who will?

- Unitas, Johnny
There is genius in persistence. It conquers all opposers. It gives confidence. It annihilates obstacles. Everybody believes in a determined man. People know that when he undertakes a thing, the battle is half won, for his rule is to accomplish whatever he sets out to do.

- Marden, Orison Swett
Making decisions about whether to keep and how to organize objects requires categorization skills, confidence in one's ability to remember, and sustained attention. To maintain order, one also needs the ability to efficiently assess the value or utility of an object.

- Randy Frost and Gail Steketee
Show me a man with head held high and I'll show you a man who can't get used to bifocals.

- Morse Telegraph Newsletter
All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure.

- Mark Twain
Hope is both the earliest and the most indispensable virtue inherent in the state of being alive. If life is to be sustained hope must remain, even where confidence is wounded, trust impaired.

- Erik H. Erikson
