“If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win, but you think you can’t,
It is almost certain you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost,
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will.
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But soon or late the man who wins, Is the man who thinks he can.

—Walter D. Wintle

If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough

—Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

We all deserve our best chance

—Ingrid Nilsen

Success isn’t measured by the resources you have, but by how resourceful you choose to be

–Dan  Waldschmidt
