Belief in oneself is one of the most important bricks in building any successful venture.
I think Clinton, after getting into office and into Washington, was shocked at being bludgeoned.

It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome.

Few things are brought to a successful issue by impetuous desire, but most by calm and prudent forethought.
