If I want to be great I have to win the victory over myself... self-discipline.
Harry S. Truman
Never kick a fresh turd on a hot day.
It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won was over themselves...self-discipline with all of them came first.
If you can't convince them, confuse them.
I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
(October 14, 1644 - July 30, 1718)
He's on a mission to pitch himself into the starting rotation and right now he's succeeding.
The image of myself which I try to create in my own mind in order that I may love myself is very different from the image which I try to create in the minds of others in order that they may love me
W. H. Auden
