"The more difficulties one has to encounter, within or without, the more significant and the higher in inspiration his life will be.....Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them... they are liable to spring upon you; but if you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight."--Orison Swett Marden

They must have a robustness of health. Mere absence of disease is not health. It is the overflowing fountain, not the one half full, that gives life and beauty to the valley below. Only he is healthy who exults in mere animal existence; whose very life is a luxury; who feels a bounding pulse throughout his body; who feels life in every limb, as dogs do when scouring over the field, or as boys do when gliding over fields of ice...

We hear a great deal of talk about genius, talent, luck, chance, cleverness, and fine manners play - ing a large part in one‘s success.
