Some of my Favourite Quotations


Success, Achievement, Character


A man's reach should exceed his grasp or what's a heaven for.

Robert Browning


If one advances confidently in the direction of
his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which
he has imagined, he will meet with a success
unexpected in common hours.

Henry David Thoreau


Cultivate reverence. It is as if you were so much
more respectable yourself. By the quality of a
man's writing, by the elevation of its tone, you
may measure his self-respect.

Henry David Thoreau


Great God, I ask thee for no meaner pelf
Than that I may not disappoint myself;
That in my action I may soar as high
As I can now discern with this clear eye.

Henry David Thoreau


The heights by great men reached and kept
Were not attained by sudden flight,
But they while their companions slept,
Were toiling upward in the night.

Longfellow
