“The high road is always respected. Honesty and integrity are always rewarded.”
“There is a place for every human being in the world — a special place and a special work for each one of us to do; a work which no other person can do; a work that is essentially and wholly connected with every woman and man. To find this place in the world and to come to know the lessons that are best for you to learn, is a necessary step toward making a success of your life.

“Concentration is power. But dispersion is weakness. Destruction is a scattering, while preservation is a uniting process. Things are useful and thoughts are powerful to the degree that their parts are strongly and intelligently concentrated. Having a purpose is to have a highly concentrated thought. All the mental energies are directed to the attainment of an object, and obstacles which intervene between the thinker and the object are, one after another, broken down and overcome.
Purpose is the keystone in the temple of achievement. It binds and holds together in a complete whole that which would otherwise lie scattered and useless. Empty whims, ephemeral fancies, vague desires, and half-hearted resolutions have no place in purpose. In the sustained determination to accomplish, there is an invincible power which swallows up all inferior considerations and marches direct to victory.
All successful men and women are people of purpose. They hold fast to an idea, a project, a plan, and will not let it go. They cherish it, brood upon it, tend and develop it. And when assailed by difficulties, they refuse to be beguiled into surrender. Indeed, the intensity of the purpose increases with the growing magnitude of the obstacles encountered.”
