When I walk with you I feel as if I had a flower in my buttonhole.
Bravery never goes out of fashion.
Follow your honest convictions and be strong.
To love and win is the best thing; to love and lose, the next best.
Dare and the world yields, or if it beats you sometimes, dare it again and you will succeed.
A good laugh is sunshine in the house.
Next to excellence is the appreciation of it.
The world is a looking glass and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face.
Do not be in a hurry to succeed. What would you have to live for afterwards? Better make the horizon your goal; it will always be ahead of you.
When you look at me, when you think of me, I am in paradise.
William Makepeace Thackeray
