Nothing succeeds in all the world like finding out what you want and sticking to it till it's yours.

You alone can radiate enough inspiration to make the most gloomy prospect a bright one, if you only try.

There's got to be an incentive, in order 10 really achieve results worth while ; if you haven't one, iook around and find one.

Don't be too ready with your criticism of new ideas; many things of today would have ranked their promoter as a sheer lunatic a few years ago.

Old age converts man into an "incarnation of memory"; and the young person who allows his mind to dwell too largely on the past, is but hurrying himself into old age.

Few men are so stupid as to make the same mistake twice; the really clever man is he whose judgment keeps him from making the mistake the first time.

People will judge you by your manners; it isn't necessary that you announce to what station in life you belong.

If you carry about you an atmosphere of defeat, you can rightfully expect to draw only defeat to you.

In the dark hour be the one to wear a smile and lighten the landscape with the radiance of hope and helpfulness; there is always an oversupply of croakers.

There is one quality fully as valuable as scientific knowledge, and you can acquire it without other aid than your own will; and that is tactfulness.

Life is a race in which man is entered against tine; to win out, you mustn't carry along any unnecessary weights, in the way of incompetency, pessimism, doubt and indecision.

Whenever a very grave situation arises, the strongest traits in a man comes uppermost, and we then see him as he really is.

As a rule, the man who must keep a sharp lookout on his employes is the man who himself needs watching: like attracts like—he draws to him that kind of people. The man who can be trusted, readily trusts others.

Your span of life is properly measured by what it represents, not by the years you have lived. Some people live a life-time in a year; others do not live a single good full year in a whole life-time. Whether you shall exist or achieve is wholly within your own control.

Did you ever stop to think that as long as you live you've got to keep moving in some direction? This being true, hadn't you better choose the direction yourself, and make it lead to somewhere worth while ? Many people travel in a continuous, monotonous circle, dying about where they commenced to live.

Always remember that it's bad enough to have a calamity befall you, without adding to the depression by feeling your worst over it.

a less

Whatever your income may be, show ordinary common sense judgment by living on amount, that some of it may go, each week, into your savings deposit. This is a "school of economy" from which you should never graduate.

Haven't you noticed some faces that seem always to be reflecting grand and beautiful thoughts? Faces that are beautiful, with a beauty far beyond miere physical perfection ? To have such a face one must first have such thoughts; and study of noble characters, with which our history abounds, will supply you with a character-treasury upon which to draw.
