    Finally, as the sky began to grow light in the morning, I’d feel that I might be drifting off. But that wasn’t sleep. My fingertips were just barely brushing against the outermost edge of sleep. And all the while, my mind was awake. I would feel a hint of drowsiness, but my mind was there, in its own room, on the other side of a transparent wall, watching me. My physical self was drifting through the feeble morning light, and all the while it could feel my mind staring, breathing, close beside it. I was both a body on the verge of sleep and a mind determined to stay awake.

    I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.

    The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.

    Can you remember who you were, before the world told you who you should be?

    Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.

    Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

    If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.

    It may be that we are doomed, that there is no hope for us, any of us, but if that is so then let us set up a last agonizing, bloodcurdling howl, a screech of defiance, a war whoop! Away with lamentation! Away with elegies and dirges! Away with biographies and histories, and libraries and museums! Let the dead eat the dead. Let us living ones dance about the rim of the crater, a last expiring dance. But a dance!

    You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.

    Better to illuminate than merely to shine, to deliver to others contemplated truths than merely to contemplate.

    The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.

    That man will never surrender his position here. He will never allow himself to be defeated by you, or I.

    Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
