Ambrose Bierce Quotes about success
#2573 Winston Churchill

Mr.has gone very high in my esteem since he stood up for the untouchables ... I do not care whether you are more or less loyal to Great Britain ... Tell Mr. Gandhi to use the powers that are offered and make the thing a success. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about success
#2778 Napoleon I of France

Hereditary succession to the magistracy is absurd, as it tends to make a property of it; it is incompatible with the sovereignty of the people. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about success
#2800 Napoleon I of France

Impatience is a great obstacle to success; he who treats everything with brusqueness gathers nothing, or only immature fruit which will never ripen. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about success
#2885 Napoleon I of France

At the beginning of a campaign it is important to consider whether or not to move forward; but when one has taken the offensive it is necessary to maintain it to the last extremity. However skilfully effected a retreat may be, it always lessens the morale of an army, since in losing the chances of success, they are remitted to the enemy. A retreat, moreover, costs much more in men and materials than the bloodiest engagements, with this difference, also, that in a battle the enemy loses practically as much as you do; while in a retreat you lose and he does not. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about success
#3549 Douglas Adams

...he had a tremendous propensity for getting lost when driving. This was largely because of his "Zen" method of navigation, which was simply to find any car that looked as if it knew where it was going and follow it. The results were more often surprising than successful, but he felt it was worth it for the sake of the few occasions when it was both. .

Douglas Adams Quotes about success
#4347 Confucius

The man of virtue makes the difficulty to be overcome his first business, and success only a subsequent consideration: this may be called perfect virtue. .

Confucius Quotes about success

The man of virtue makes the difficulty to be overcome his first business, and success only a subsequent consideration. .

Confucius Quotes about success
#4388 Confucius

In all things success depends on previous preparation, and without such previous preparation there is sure to be failure. If what is to be spoken be previously determined, there will be no stumbling. If affairs be previously determined, there will be no difficulty with them. If one's actions have been previously determined, there will be no sorrow in connection with them. If principles of conduct have been previously determined, the practice of them will be inexhaustible. .

Confucius Quotes about success
#4662 Ralph Waldo Emerson

When nature removes a great man, people explore the horizon for a successor; but none comes, and none will. His class is extinguished with him. In some other and quite different field the next man will appear. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about success
#4692 Ralph Waldo Emerson

The measure of a master is his success in bringing all men round to his opinion twenty years later. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about success
#4810 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about success
#4849 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Self-trust is the first secret of success. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about success
#4884 Saddam Hussein

Our relations with Iran have witnessed grave crises because of the policies of successive regimes in Iran which have considered Iraq and the Arab homeland, particularly the Arab Gulf area, as a sphere for domination and influence. .

Saddam Hussein Quotes about success
#4889 Saddam Hussein

For the first time in modern history a Third World state has successfully fought a defensive war — the longest such war between regular armies since the Second World War — without being under the umbrella of a particular military pact or the influence of a particular great power; and without suffering any shackles on its will and independence, or abandoning its principles and policies. .

Saddam Hussein Quotes about success
#4893 Saddam Hussein

We have never said that the fight against the Iranian aggression and against the expansionist Persian tendencies (which have been demonstrated by various means under successive regimes in Iran) is the decisive battle for the Arabs. What we have said, and still say, is that the fight against Zionism is the main decisive battle for the Arabs. This is a great objective reality, which cannot be denied or underestimated except by someone who would not only harm the Arab nation and its main causes, but would also overlook the main danger. .

Saddam Hussein Quotes about success
#5203 Mark Twain

I am persuaded that in Russia, Austria, and Germany nine-tenths of the hostility to the Jew comes from the average Christian's inability to compete successfully with the average Jew in business--in either straight business or the questionable sort. .

Mark Twain Quotes about success
#5249 Mark Twain

Surely the test of a novel's characters is that you feel a strong interest in them and their affairs—the good to be successful, the bad to suffer failure. Well, in John Ward, you feel no divided interest, no discriminating interest—you want them all to land in hell together, and right away. .

Mark Twain Quotes about success
#6433 Henry David Thoreau

Perhaps I am more than usually jealous with respect to my freedom. I feel that my connection with and obligation to society are still very slight and transient. Those slight labors which afford me a livelihood, and by which it is allowed that I am to some extent serviceable to my contemporaries, are as yet commonly a pleasure to me, and I am not often reminded that they are a necessity. So far I am successful. But I foresee, that, if my wants should be much increased, the labor required to supply them would become a drudgery. If I should sell both my forenoons and afternoons to society, as most appear to do, I am sure, that, for me, there would be nothing left worth living for. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about success
#6440 Henry David Thoreau

Men rush to California and Australia as if the true gold were to be found in that direction; but that is to go to the very opposite extreme to where it lies. They go prospecting farther and farther away from the true lead, and are most unfortunate when they think themselves most successful. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about success
#6627 William Ellery Channing

There are times when the assertion of great principles is the best service a man can render society. The present is a moment of bewildering excitement, when men's minds are stormed and darkened by strong passions and fierce conflicts; and also a moment of absorbing worldliness, when the moral law is made to bow to expediency, and its high and strict requirements are denied, or dismissed as metaphysical abstractions or impracticable theories. At such a season, to utter great principles without passion, and in the spirit of unfeigned and universal good-will, and to engrave them deeply and durably on men's minds, is to do more for the world, than to open mines of wealth, or to frame the most successful schemes of policy. .

William Ellery Channing Quotes about success
#7042 Albert Camus

If the only significant history of human thought were to be written, it would have to be the history of its successive regrets and its impotences. .

Albert Camus Quotes about success
#7156 Adolf Hitler

[I] never lost my belief, in the midst of setbacks which were not spared me during my period of struggle. Providence has had the last word and brought me success. .

Adolf Hitler Quotes about success
#7168 Adolf Hitler

And today I stand by this same view. Fate, or Providence, will give the victory to those who most deserve it... And when now, after 10 years, I again survey this period, I can say that upon no people has Providence ever bestowed more successes than upon us. The miracles we have achieved in the last three years in the face of a whole world of enemies are unique in history, especially the crises we very naturally often had in these years. .

Adolf Hitler Quotes about success
#7198 Adolf Hitler

The development of relations between State and Church affords a very instructive example of how the carelessness of a single statesman can have after-effects which last for centuries. When Charlemagne was kneeling at prayer in St. Peter's, Rome, at Christmas in the year 800, the Pope, giving him no time to work out the possible effects of so symbolic an action, suddenly bent down and presto! popped a golden crown on his head! By permitting it, the Emperor delivered himself and his successors into the hands of a power which subjected the German Government and the German people to five hundred years of martyrdom. .

Adolf Hitler Quotes about success
#7459 P. J. O'Rourke

Jewishness cropped up and has never successfully been put down since. .

P. J. O'Rourke Quotes about success
#7537 P. J. O'Rourke

Crowded as the country is, is overcrowding even its main problem? Hong Kong and Singapore both have greater population densities (14.315 and 12.347 per square mile, respectively) than Bangladesh, and they're called success stories. The same goes for Monaco. In fact, the whole Riviera is packed in August, and neither Malthus nor Ehrlich have complained about the topless beaches of St. Tropez. .

P. J. O'Rourke Quotes about success
#7629 John Lehman

"I’d like to say we have fixed these problems, but we haven’t. We have very real vulnerabilities. We have not diminished in any way the fervor and ideology of our enemy. .... Today, probably 50 or more states have schools that are teaching jihad, preaching, recruiting, and training. We have absolutely no successful programs even begun to remediate against those efforts. .... Nobody paid attention. Presidents in four administrations put their arms around Saudi ambassadors, ignored the Wahhabi jihadism, and said these are our eternal friends." .

John Lehman Quotes about success
#7644 Harry Emerson Fosdick

Hold a picture of yourself long and steadily enough in your mind's eye and you will be drawn toward it. Picture yourself vividly as defeated and that alone will make victory impossible. Picture yourself vividly as winning, and that alone will contribute immeasurably to success. Do not picture yourself as anything and you will drift like a derelict. .

Harry Emerson Fosdick Quotes about success
#7952 Stephen Crane

A singular disadvantage of the sea lies in the fact that after successfully surmounting one wave you discover that there is another behind it just as important and just as nervously anxious to do something effective in the way of swamping boats. .

Stephen Crane Quotes about success
#8189 H. L. Mencken

All successful newspapers are ceaselessly querulous and bellicose. They never defend anyone or anything if they can help it; if the job is forced on them, they tackle it by denouncing someone or something else. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about success
#8222 H. L. Mencken

Historian — An unsuccessful novelist. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about success
#8369 Samuel Adams

It is a very great mistake to imagine that the object of loyalty is the authority and interest of one individual man, however dignified by the applause or enriched by the success of popular actions. .

Samuel Adams Quotes about success
#8831 Fran§ois Ren© de Chateaubriand

Aristocracy has three successive ages, — the age of superiorities, the age of privileges, and the age of vanities; having passed out of the first, it degenerates in the second, and dies away in the third. .

Fran§ois Ren© de Chateaubriand Quotes about success
#8886 Marilyn Monroe

It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you. .

Marilyn Monroe Quotes about success
#8888 Marilyn Monroe

Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn't that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you. .

Marilyn Monroe Quotes about success
#9164 Donald Knuth

The reason is not to glorify "bit chasing"; a more fundamental issue is at stake here: Numerical subroutines should deliver results that satisfy simple, useful mathematical laws whenever possible. [...] Without any underlying symmetry properties, the job of proving interesting results becomes extremely unpleasant. The enjoyment of one's tools is an essential ingredient of successful work. .

Donald Knuth Quotes about success
#9209 Edsger W. Dijkstra

How do we convince people that in programming simplicity and clarity —in short: what mathematicians call "elegance"— are not a dispensable luxury, but a crucial matter that decides between success and failure? .

Edsger W. Dijkstra Quotes about success
#9218 Edsger W. Dijkstra

Elegance is not a dispensable luxury but a quality that decides between success and failure. .

Edsger W. Dijkstra Quotes about success
#9454 Nineteen Eighty Four

Whether he went on with the diary, or whether he did not go on with it, made no difference. The Thought Police would get him just the same. He had committed— would still have committed, even if he had never set pen to paper— the essential crime that contained all others in itself. , they called it. Thoughtcrime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for a while, even for years, but sooner or later they were bound to get you. .

Nineteen Eighty Four Quotes about success
#9474 Nineteen Eighty Four

The sexual act, successfully performed, was rebellion. Desire was thoughtcrime. .

Nineteen Eighty Four Quotes about success
#9593 Theodore Roosevelt

It is a bad thing for a nation to raise and to admire a false standard of success; and there can be no falser standard than that set by the deification of material well-being in and for itself. .

Theodore Roosevelt Quotes about success
#9636 Theodore Roosevelt

The chief factor in any man’s success or failure must be his own character—that is, the sum of his common sense, his courage, his virile energy and capacity. .

Theodore Roosevelt Quotes about success
#9641 Theodore Roosevelt

Throughout our history the success of the homemaker has been but another name for the up-building of the nation. .

Theodore Roosevelt Quotes about success
#9649 Theodore Roosevelt

It is probably true that the large majority of the fortunes that now exist in this country have been amassed not by injuring our people, but as an incident to the conferring of great benefits upon the community; and this, no matter what may have been the conscious purpose of those amassing them. There is but the scantiest justification for most of the outcry against the men of wealth as such; and it ought to be unnecessary to state that any appeal which directly or indirectly leads to suspicion and hatred among ourselves, which tends to limit opportunity, and therefore to shut the door of success against poor men of talent, and, finally, which entails the possibility of lawlessness and violence, is an attack upon the fundamental properties of American citizenship. .

Theodore Roosevelt Quotes about success
#9679 Theodore Roosevelt

The process has aroused much antagonism, a great part of which is wholly without warrant. It is not true that as the rich have grown richer the poor have grown poorer. On the contrary, never before has the average man, the wage-worker, the farmer, the small trader, been so well off as in this country and at the present time. There have been abuses connected with the accumulation of wealth; yet it remains true that a fortune accumulated in legitimate business can be accumulated by the person specially benefited only on condition of conferring immense incidental benefits upon others. Successful enterprise, of the type which benefits all mankind, can only exist if the conditions are such as to offer great prizes as the rewards of success. .

Theodore Roosevelt Quotes about success
#9730 Theodore Roosevelt

The conditions which have told for our marvelous material well-being, which have developed to a very high degree our energy, self-reliance, and individual initiative, have also brought the care and anxiety inseparable from the accumulation of great wealth in industrial centers. Upon the success of our experiment much depends, not only as regards our own welfare, but as regards the welfare of mankind. If we fail, the cause of free self-government throughout the world will rock to its foundations, and therefore our responsibility is heavy, to ourselves, to the world as it is to-day, and to the generations yet unborn. .
