Failure is only postponed success as long as courage 'coaches' ambition. The habit of persistence is the habit of victory.
Makers of empire, they have fought for bigger things than crowns and higher seats than thrones.
Only things the dreamers make live on. They are the eternal conquerors.
Rich men's sons are seldom rich men's fathers.
Words signify man's refusal to accept the world as it is.
