My 'thoughts' 30.7.2013 others "quotes"

'Those who are meant to be together must get together and stay together.'
'Tomorrow is death, today is life.'

"Genius is often only the power of making continuous efforts. The line between failure and success is so fine that we scarcely know when we pass it — so fine that we are often on the line and do not know it. How many a man has thrown up his hands at a time when a little more effort, a little more patience, would have achieved success. As the tide goes clear out, so it comes clear in. In business sometimes prospects may seem darkest when really they are on the turn. A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success. There is no failure except in no longer trying. There is no defeat except from within, no really insurmountable barrier save our own inherent weakness of purpose."
Elbert Hubbard

"Never give up,  no matter what." Humphrey Bogart (As best I can recall Lauren Bacall's words from the TV).

"Never accept failure, no matter how many times it visits you; keep on going, never give up, never." 
Dr. Michael Smurfit (I read this on a brown sugar sachet).

"A failure establishes only this: that our determination to succeed was not strong enough." 
Christian Nestell Bovee [American, (1820-1904), quote obtained from 'Wisdom of the Ages' by Mark Gilbert, 1948. First published 1936.]

"The longer I live, the more deeply I am convinced that that which makes the only difference between one man and another - between the weak and the powerful, the great and the insignificant - is energy: invincible determination: a purpose once formed and then death or victory." 
Sir Thomas Buxton [English, (1786-1845), quote obtained from 'Wisdom of the Ages'.]
