WISDOM OF CONFUCIUS
- He who will not economize will have to agonize.
- It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.
- Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.
- The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential...these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.
- Our greatest glory is never failing, but in rising every time we fall.
- When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
- The superior man understands what is right; the inferior man understands what will sell.
- Success depends on previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure.
- The superior man is distressed by the limitations of his ability; he is not distressed by the fact that men do not recognize the ability that he has.
- When you are labouring for others, let it be with the same zeal as if it were for yourself.
- Ability will never catch up with the demand for it.
