Perseverance is a great element of success.  If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.

You can be discouraged by failure, or you can learn from it.  So go ahead and make mistakes, make all you can.  Because, remember that’s where you’ll find success – on the far side of failure.

Don’t aim at success.  The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it.  For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself.  Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it.  I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge.  Then you will live to see that in the long-run — in the long-run, I say! — success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it.

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty;
to find the best in others;
to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden path, or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life breathes easier because you have lived: this is to have succeeded.
  —  Ralph Waldo Emerson
