A thousand-li journey is started by taking the first step.
Where there is a will, there is a way.
An idle youth, a needy age.
A plant may produce new flowers; man is young but once.
God helps those who help themselves.
Genius is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.
Good wine needs no bush.
Haste makes waste.
He that promises too much means nothing.
He would climb the ladder must begin at the bottom.
It is never too late to mend.
Just has long arms.
Keep something for a rainy day.
Life is a span.
Mind acts upon mind.
One is never too old to learn.
Poverty is stranger to industry.
Rome was not built in a day.
All things will come round to him who will but wait.
Experience is the best teacher.
A friend is best found in adversity.
Success belongs to the persevering.
Genius only means hard-working all one’s life.
The man who has made up his mind to win will never say “impossible “.
There is no such thing as a great talent without great will – power.
