A man may fulfill the object of his existence by asking a question he cannot answer, and attempting a task he cannot achieve.
-- Oliver Wendall Holmes

All greatness is achieved while performing outside your comfort zone.
-- Greg Arnold

Depression may be an exaggerated form of a response to loss that in less extreme form is adaptive. A depressed mood slows us down, makes us think realistically rather than optimistically, makes us turn away from goals that we can no longer hope to achieve, and signals to others that this is a time in life when we need some help.
-- Peter Gray

Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
-- William Jennings Bryan

Dreamers are those who have achieved in love and life, because it is a dream that got them there.
-- Cindy Sherman

Education is not received. It is achieved.

Fear of criticism is the kiss of death in the courtship of achievement.

Happiness is a by-product of achievement.

Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve it through not dying.
-- Woody Allen

It is not the critic who counts. Not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause. Who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
-- Theodore Roosevelt

It will ever remain incomprehensible that our generation, which has shown itself so great by its achievements in discovery and invention, could fall so low spiritually as to give up thinking.
-- Albert Schweitzer

Man's maximum achievement often falls short of God's minimum demands.

Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside of them was superior to circumstance.
-- Bruce Barton

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.
-- Albert Einstein

People who do not succeed have one distinguishing trait in common. They know all the reasons for failure and have what they believe to be air-tight alibis to explain their own lack of achievement.
-- Napoleon Hill

Some people are born mediocre, some people achieve mediocrity, and some people have mediocrity thrust upon them.
-- Joseph Heller

The only thing in life achieved without effort is failure.

The only thing some people can achieve on their own is dandruff.
