Effort

Henry Van Dyke

The woods would be quiet if no bird sang but the one that sang best.

Theodore Roosevelt

Zig Ziglar

Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be. If we do our best, we are a success.

R. Collier

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.

Edwin Percy Whipple

Cheerfulness in most people is the rich and satisfying result of strenuous discipline.

William Arthur Ward

Before you speak, listen. Before you write, think. Before you spend, earn. Before you invest, investigate. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try. Before you retire, save. Before you die, give.

Theodore Roosevelt

The credit belongs to those who are actually in the arena, who strive valiantly; who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spend themselves in a worthy cause; who at best know the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if they fail, fail while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

John F. Kennedy

One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.

John Burroughs

A man can get discouraged many times but he is not a failure until he begins to blame somebody else and stops trying.

Helen Keller

Be of good cheer. Do not think of today’s failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost.

Theodore Roosevelt

Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.

Orrin Woodward

Pressure squeezes effort out of winners and excuses out of losers.
