The difference between doers and dreamers is that the latter wait for the mood before taking action while the former create the mood by acting. What lies before us and what lies beyond us is tiny compared to what lies within us. You cannot pick cherries with your back to the tree. Do not be afraid to take big steps. You cannot cross a chasm in two small jumps. Whoever I am and whatever I am doing, some kind excellence is within my reach.
I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something I can do. To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing. Do not compromise yourself. You are all you have got. Whoever I am and whatever I am doing, some kind excellence is within my reach. You must have long-range goals to keep you from being frustrated by short-range failures. We can try to avoid making choices by doing nothing, but even that is a decision.
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no ones definition of your life, but define yourself. One cannot govern with buts. The man who is waiting for something to turn up might start on his shirt sleeves. Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself, and dares to become involved in experimenting with his own life. Though no one can go back and make a new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new end. People are not remembered by how few times they fail but by how often they succeed. Every wrong step is another step forward.
