I am not a has-been.  I’m a will-be.
Lauren Bacall


An aim in life is the only fortune worth finding.
Robert Louis Stevenson


During more than 35 years in the business world, I have observed that the people who care only about winning - who live and die by the numbers alone - end up losing out on the biggest prize of all. That prize is the joy of being an important part of something much larger than yourself. It is the comfort of knowing that your actions will touch the lives of others in a positive way. It is joining with other people in working toward worthwhile goals. It is a prize that has nothing to do with winning or making money. it has everything to do with life. 
Kent C. Nelson, former United Parcel Service chairman and CEO

The power of ideals is incalculable. We see no power in a drop of water. But let it get into a crack in the rock and be turned to ice, and it splits the rock,  turned into steam, it drives the pistons of the most powerful engines. Something has happened to it which makes active and affective the power that is latent in it.
Albert Schweitzer.


Almost anyone who devotes himself to a given vocation, and who pours his love and energy into that activity, develops a certain genius in the field: the vocation opens itself up to him in terms of its truths and principles, it bends itself to his imagery and ideas, it becomes his friend and most able co-creator, building up the person as he invests himself in the work. And any work can serve this purpose.
Marsha Sinetar


We are not creatures of circumstance; we are creators of circumstance.
Benjamin Disraeli  (1804 –1881)


Circumstances – what are circumstances?  I make circumstances.
Napoleon Bonaparte (1769 –1821)


I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.
Arthur Rubinstein (1887 –1982)

What is wealth? Money - or what's worth money? Would you take a million dollars for your health, or your eyesight, or your wife and children? Certainly not! Well, then, what do you mean by complaining of having too little? Good heavens, man, you're a millionaire!
Channing Pollock.


When I look to the future I have hopes and dreams for myself and my family. Even if those dreams are never realised, it is the journey towards them that I will remember and that makes my life, no matter what, a successful one.
Annette Hunter, from her prize winning short story "I Remember"


Shoot for the moon.  Even if you miss it you will land among the stars.
Les Brown


A man can succeed at almost anything for which he has unlimited enthusiasm.
Charles M. Schwab (1862 – 1939)


Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.
Horace Mann (1796 – 1859)


So, if it be my destiny to spread some peace in life
Affecting not just passers-by who shared in all the strife,
But also others down the track, the future generations;
To me this is a successful life, exceeding expectations.
Della Steen from her prize winning poem "A Successful Life"


I have crossed over on the back of Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Fannie Lou Hamer and Madam C.J. Walker.  Because of them I can now live the dream.  I am the seed of the free, and I know it.  I intend to bear great fruit.
Oprah Winfrey, 1954 –

Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice.  It is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved.
William Jennings Bryan  (1860 – 1925)


Strong lives are motivated by dynamic purposes.
Kenneth Hildebrand  (1906 –1979)


Success is an insatiable want. Its victories are euphoric, its defeats disastrous. It is a small, seven letter word that can only truly be defined inside each one of us individually.  The path to achieving it, in our minds, is clear, but it’s the intangibles that test our will.
Billy Johnson from his prize winning short story "More Than I Deserve"


To me success means effectiveness in the world, that I am able to carry my ideas and values into the world – that I am able to change it in positive ways.
Maxine Hone Kingston

It is not easy to be a pioneer – but oh, it is fascinating!  I would not trade one moment, even the worst moment, for all the riches in the world.
Elizabeth Blackwell  (1821 –1910)  in 1849, the first woman in the U.S. to become a physician.


I am not just mortal, because the stars are pointing to my destiny. I am not ordinary, for there is a price to pay for my future. I am a child of the shining sun.
Daniel Gbemi Akinlolu from his prize winning short story "Children of the Sun"


I’ve never sought success in order to get fame and money; it’s the talent and the passion that count in success.
Ingrid Bergman, 1915-1982


It dances round and round my head,
while through the air it flitters.
With giddy, smitten, vibrant joy,
my beaming heart, it glitters.
Narissa Doumani from her prize winning poem "I Wish That I Could Catch Your Laugh"


You know, it is very simple to be a genius.  All you have to do is think for yourself.


Did you know that when you can say, “I love my work,” you reduce your risk of heart disease?  A study done by the Massachusetts HEW investigating the cause of heart disease asked participants two questions:  Are you happy? Do you love your work?  The results indicated that those who answered yes have a better chance of not getting heart disease.
Deepak Chopra, MD.  Magical Mind, Magical Body.


I love the discoveries the world can bring.
Adventurous forays into unknown territories,
hours filled with breathtaking sights and life changing pursuits.
Feelings of being truly alive and utterly blessed, that is success.
Nicole West from her prize winning poem "Worldly Success"


The real secret of success is enthusiasm.  Yes, more than enthusiasm, I would say excitement.  I like to see men get excited.  When they get excited they make a success of their lives.
Walter Chrysler (1875 –1940)

You can be an ordinary athlete by getting away with less than your best.  But if you want to be a great you have to give it all you’ve got – your everything.
Duke P. Kahanamoku (1890-1968)


Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control. These three alone lead life to sovereign power.
Alfred lord Tennyson (1809 – 1892)


To improve the golden moment of opportunity, and catch the good that is within our reach, is the great art of life.
William James  (1842 –1910)
