I will love the light for it shows me the way. Yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.
Og Mandino, in The Greatest Salesman in the World (1968), Ch. 9 : The Scroll Marked II, p. 59.
I will persist until I succeed.I was not deIivered unto this world in defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd.Og Mandino
I will avoid despair but if this disease of the mind infects me then I will work on in despair. I will toil and I will endure. I will ignore the obstacles at my feet and keep my eyes on the goals above my head, for I know that where dry desert ends, green grass grows.Og Mandino
Each day will be triumphant only when your smiles bring forth smiles from others.Og Mandino
Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold.Og Mandino
A field of clay touched by the genius of man becomes a castle.Og Mandino
I will commit not the terrible crime of aiming too low. I will do the work that a failure will not do. I will always let my reach exceed my grasp.Og Mandino
I will become a firefly and even in the day my glow will be seen in spite of the sun. Let others be as butterflies who preen their wings and yet depend upon the charity of a flower for life. I will be as the firefly and my light will brighten the world.Og Mandino
Do all things with love.Og Mandino
Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.Og Mandino
