105.  Anyone can sympathize with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature to sympathize with a friend's success (Oscar Wilde, 1854-1900). Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude towards us (Earl Nightingale).
106.  Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles (Helen Keller, 1880-1968).
107.  Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is uncomforting (Harriet Braiker). The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential ... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence (Eddie Robinson).

116.  I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be honorable, to be compassionate. It is, after all, to matter: to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all (Leo C. Rosten, 1908-1977).
117.  Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done
without hope and confidence (Helen Keller, 1880-1968)

120.  Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will (Mahatma Gandhi). A man/woman is not old until regrets take the place of dreams (John Barrymore).
121.  The real contest is always between what you've done and what you're capable of doing. You measure yourself against yourself and nobody else (Geoffrey Gaberino). The principle is competing against yourself. It's about self improvement, about being better than you were the day before (Steve Young).
122.  Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success (Stephen A. Brennan). Goals are not only absolutely necessary to motivate us. They are essential to really keep us alive (Robert H. Schuller).
123.  In life, as in football, you won't go far unless you know where the goalposts are (Arnold H. Glasgow). Goals help you see things not as they are, but as they could be. Instead of asking "why?" try "why not?".
124.  There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle (Albert Einstein). The miracle is this: The more we share, the more we have (Leonard Nimoy). I believe we can all become lighting rods for miracles.

128.  Learn to think like a winner. Think positive and visualize your strengths (Vic Braden). Part of being a champ is acting like a champ. You have to learn how to win and not run away when you lose. Everyone has bad stretches and real successes. Either way, you have to be careful not to lose your confidence or get too confident (Nancy Kerrigan).
129.  Big jobs usually go to the men who prove their ability to outgrow small ones (Ralph Waldo Emerson). It is the mark of great people to treat trifles as trifles and important matters as important (Doris Lessing).
130.  Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe). People never improve unless they look to some standard or example higher or better than themselves (Tryon Edwards). If you want to be valued, become more valuable.
131.  Greatness is more than potential. It is the execution of that potential. Beyond the raw talent, you need the appropriate training. You need the discipline. You need the inspiration. You need the drive (Eric A. Burns).
132.  There are high spots in all of our lives and most of them have come about through encouragement from someone else. I don't care how great, how famous or successful a man or woman may be, each hungers for applause (George M. Adams). So, jangan pelit memberikan pujian yg proporsional atas kelebihan & kebaikan orang lain.... Selain menjadi pupuk & energi bagi orang lain, juga meningkatkan kualitas hubungan interpersonal ..
133. No matter who says what, you should accept it with a smile and do your own work (Mother Teresa, 1910-1997). When someone does something good, applaud! You will make two people happy (Samuel Goldwyn).

136.  The world is moved not only by the mighty shoves of the heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker (Helen Keller, 1880-1968). A hero is a man who does what he can (Roman Rollard).
137.  To live in the presence of great truths and eternal laws, to be led by permanent ideals – that is what keeps a man patient when the world ignores him, and calm and unspoiled when the world praises him (Honore De Balzac, 1799-1850).
138.  Love is all you need (John Lennon). Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your gold and good health have vanished (Og Mandino). Love must be as much a light, as it is a flame (Henry David Thoreau). If a man/women does his best, what more is there? (General George F. Patton).
139. Nothing will ever be attempted, if all possible objections must first be overcome (Samuel Johnson, 1709-1784). Our real duty is always found running in the direction of our worthiest desires (Randolph S. Bourne, 1886-1918).
140.  Every man stamps his value on himself … man is made great or small by his own will (J.C.F. von Schiller). Enthusiasm is the best protection in any situation. Wholeheartedness is contagious. Give yourself, if you wish to get others (David Seabury).
141.  Don’t judge book from its cover (Anonymous). Judgement comes from experience, and great judgement comes from bad experience (Robert Packwood).
142.  Life is not holding a good hand; life is playing a poor hand well (Danish proverb). To aim at the best and to remain essentially ourselves is one and the
same thing (Janet Erskine Stuart).
143.  The beauty of the soul shines out when a man bears with composure one heavy mischance after another, not because he does not feel them, but because he is a man of high and heroic temper (Aristotle).
144.  Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you (Carl Sandburg)
145.  The abundant life does not come to those who have had a lot of obstacles removed from their path by others. It develops from within and is rooted in strong mental and moral fiber (William Mather Lewis).
146.  It is how you deal with failure that determines how you achieve success (David Feherty). Nothing ever becomes real until it is experienced (John Keats).
147.  There is more in us than we know. If we can be made to see it, perhaps, for the rest of our lives, we will be unwilling to settle for less (Kurt Hahn).
148.  Few people have any next, they live from hand to mouth without a plan, and are always at the end of their line (Ralph Waldo Emerson).
150.  In the final analysis there is no solution to man’s progress but the day’s honest work, the day’s honest decisions, the day’s generous utterances and the day’s good deed (Clare Booth Luce). Until you value yourself, you will not value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it (M. Scott Peck).
