When government accepts responsibility for people, then people no longer take responsibility for themselves.
If you dream the proper dreams, and share the myths with people, they will want to grow up to be like you.
You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.
If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.
Plenty of people miss their share of happiness, not because they never found it, but because they didn't stop to enjoy it.
Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.
It takes people a long time to learn the difference between talent and genius, especially ambitious young men and women.
The people when rightly and fully trusted will return the trust
I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people
Adversity, if a man is set down to it by degrees, is more supportable with equanimity by most people than any great prosperity arrived at in a single lifetime
Give advice; if people don't listen, let adversity teach them
So many people spend their health gaining wealth, and then have to spend their wealth to regain their health.

There are people who think that honesty is always the best policy. This is a superstition; there are times when the appearance of it is worth six of it.
Dishonest people conceal their faults from themselves as well as others, honest people know and confess them.
But when we get enough people who don't care, and who don't accept personal responsibility for high ethical standards, our organization gets the "M" disease. Mediocrity. Anybody in the place can be a carrier. By the same token, every individual can carry the cure: the ethics of excellence.
Rather than idleness of people, it is the activeness of people that turns the wheels of the struggle.
People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.
Motivation is the art of getting people to do what you want them to do because they want to do it.
Help people become more motivated by guiding them to the source of their own power.
This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.
