Theme Series: Success

Perhaps there is no more motivating dream than the pursuit of success. The following quotes provide illuminating perspectives:

-Failure is success if we learn from it. ~ Malcolm Forbes

-Success is like death. The more successful you become, the higher the houses in the hills get and the higher the fences get. ~ Kevin Spacey

-Success is that old ABC - ability, breaks, and courage. ~ Charles Luckman

-Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome. ~ Booker T. Washington

-The common idea that success spoils people by making them vain, egotistic and self-complacent is erroneous; on the contrary it makes them, for the most part, humble, tolerant and kind. ~ W. Somerset Maugham

-Can success change the human mechanism so completely between one dawn and another? Can it make one feel taller, more alive, handsomer, uncommonly gifted and indomitably secure with the certainty that this is the way life will always be? It can and it does. ~ Moss Hart

Selected by quoteflections.

-Success is counted sweetest
By those who ne'er succeed.
To comprehend a nectar
Requires sorest need.
Not one of all the purple host
Who took the flag today
Can tell the definition,
So clear, of victory,
As he defeated, dying,
On whose forbidden ear
The distant strains of triumph
Break, agonized and clear. ~ Emily Dickinson

-Pray that success will not come any faster than you are able to endure it. ~ Elbert Hubbard

-Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value. ~Albert Einstein

-Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. ~Winston Churchill

-Sometimes I worry about being a success in a mediocre world. ~Lily Tomlin
