"Next to trying and winning, the best thing is trying and failing." ~ Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery Yet if he upbraided her in his hurry, it was to repent bitterly his temper the next instant, and to feel its effects more than she, temper being a weapon that we hold by the blade. ~ The Little Minister by James M. Barrie Some happy talent, and some fortunate opportunity, may form the two sides of the ladder on which some men mount, but the rounds of that ladder must be made of stuff to stand wear and tear; and there is no substitute for thorough-going, ardent, and sincere earnestness. ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens I have been very fortunate in worldly matters; many men have worked much harder, and not succeeded half so well; but I never could have done what I have done, without the habits of punctuality, order, and diligence, without the determination to concentrate myself on one object at a time, no matter how quickly its successor should come upon its heels, which I then formed. ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens "Never," said my aunt, "be mean in anything; never be false; never be cruel. Avoid those three vices, Trot, and I can always be hopeful of you." ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens "My advice is, never do tomorrow what you can do today. Procrastination is the thief of time." ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens "We must meet reverses boldly, and not suffer them to frighten us, my dear. We must learn to act the play out. We must live misfortune down, Trot!" ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens My meaning simply is, that whatever I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do well; that whatever I have devoted myself to, I have devoted myself to completely; that in great aims and in small, I have always been thoroughly in earnest. ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens "It's in vain, Trot, to recall the past, unless it works some influence upon the present." ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens "Lord bless you!" said Mr. Omer, resuming his pipe, "a man must take the fat with the lean; that's what he must make up his mind to, in this life. " ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
