Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.Pope John XXIII
Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion . . . . I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
People need trouble -- a little frustration to sharpen the spirit on, toughen it. Artists do; I don't mean you need to live in a rat hole or gutter, but you have to learn fortitude, endurance.William Faulkner
The torment of human frustration, whatever its immediate cause, is the knowledge that the self is in prison, its vital force and "mangled mind" leaking away in lonely, wasteful self-conflict.Elizabeth Drew
All that is necessary to break the spell of inertia and frustration is to -- act as if it were impossible to fail.Dorothea Brande
Success is not built on success. It's built on failure. It's built on frustration. Sometimes its built on catastrophe.Sumner Redstone
History balances the frustration of 'how far we have to go' with the satisfaction of 'how far we have come.' It teaches us tolerance for the human shortcomings and imperfections which are not uniquely of our generation, but of all time.Lewis F. Powell, Jr.
Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.Dale Carnegie
Our frustration is greater when we have much and want more than when we have nothing and want some. We are less dissatisfied when we lack many things than when we seem to lack but one thing.Eric Hoffer
A belief in hell and the knowledge that every ambition is doomed to frustration at the hands of a skeleton have never prevented the majority of human beings from behaving as though death were no more than an unfounded rumour.Aldous Huxley
My philosophy of life is that the meek shall inherit nothing but debasement, frustration, and ignoble deaths.Harlan Ellison
I became an entrepreneur by mistake. Ever since then I've gone into business, not to make money, but because I think I can do it better than it's been done elsewhere. And, quite often, just out of personal frustration about the way it's been done by other people.Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson
