“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.”

Vincent T. Lombardi (1913-1970), American professional football coach

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.

Colossians 3:23

The mighty oak was once a little nut that simply stood its ground.

“The nose of the bulldog has been slanted backwards so that he can breathe without letting go.”

Winston Churchill (nicknamed, The British Bulldog)


There is no chance, no destiny, no fate,
Can circumvent or hinder or control
The firm resolve of a determined soul.
Gifts count for nothing; will alone is great;
All things give way before it, soon or late.
What obstacle can stay the mighty force
Of the sea-seeking river in its course,
Or cause the ascending orb of day to wait?
Each wellborn soul must win what it deserves.
Let the fool prate of luck. The fortunate
Is he whose earnest purpose never swerves,
Whose slightest action or inaction serves
The one great aim. Why even Death stands still,
And waits an hour sometimes for such a will.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

When a task is once begun,
Leave it not until it’s done,
And be a matter great or small,
Do it well or not at all.

“U-turn if you want to. The lady’s not for turning.”

Margaret Thatcher (from a speech given at the Conservative Party Conference, 1980.)

“One of the most powerful forces in the world is the will of men and women who believe in themselves, who dare to hope and aim high, who go confidently after the things they want from life.”

Rich DeVos, co-founder of Amway Corporation
