The finest command of language is often shown by saying nothing.
It is wise to keep in mind that neither success nor failure is ever final.
When we are flat on our backs there is no way to look but up.
It takes a person who is wide awake to make his dream come true.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgement will always be in demand under all conditions.
Roger Babson
The successful man is the one who had the chance and took it.
Let him who would enjoy a good future waste none of his present.
Keep in mind that neither success nor failure is ever final.
