Some suggestions for you :

If I persist long enough I will win.

I seek constantly to improve my manners and graces, for they are the sugar to which all are attracted.

I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.

Always seek out the seed of triumph in every adversity.

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.

A smile remains the most inexpensive gift I can bestow on anyone and yet its powers can vanquish kingdoms.

I will persist until I succeed. I was not delivered unto this world in defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd.

Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again.

Tomorrow is only found in the calendar of fools.

It is those who concentrates on but one thing at a time who advance in this world. The great man or woman is the one who never steps outside his or her specialty or foolishly dissipates his or her individuality.

Do not listen to those who weep and complain, for their disease is contagious.

Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your good health has vanished.

I have never heard anything about the resolutions of the apostles, but a good deal about their acts.

One of the things is we tend to give up too soon. We get knocked down a couple of times, and we stay down. It's so important to get back up again.
