A perfection of means, and confusion of aims, seems to be our main problem.
Every man is said to have his peculiar ambition. Whether it be true or not, I can say for one that I have no other so great as that of being truly esteemed of my fellow men, by rendering myself worthy of their esteem.
Give me a stock clerk with a goal and Iíll give you a man who will make history. Give me a man with no goals and Iíll give you a stock clerk.
Have the courage and the wisdom and the vision to raise a definite standard that will appeal to the best that is in man, and then strive mightily toward that goal
Stassen, Harold E.
I believe through learning and application of what you learn, you can solve any problem, overcome any obstacle and achieve any goal that you can set for yourself.
I know well what I am fleeing from but not what I am in search of.
De Montaigne, Michel
If your trainís on the wrong track, every station you come to is the wrong station.
One never goes as far when one doesnít know where one is going.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang von
The tragedy in life is not in failing to realise oneís goals, but in failing to have goals to realise.
