Well done is better than well said.

Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today.

By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.

When you’re finished changing, you’re finished.

All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move.

Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.

Diligence is the mother of good luck.

There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one’s self.

Energy and persistence conquer all things.

We can learn from, be more like…

A tree: grow strong with deep roots; bend with the wind/adversity.

A fireplace: listen warmly; attract moths.

A dog: live in the moment; “best day ever”; bring a toy.

Edith Eger, Auschwitz survivor, author of The Choice has wisdom we can all learn from…

  • Our painful experiences aren’t a liability — they’re a gift. They give us perspective and meaning, an opportunity to find our unique purpose and our strength.
