Famous quotes by Josiah Gilbert Holland:Sort:PopularA - Z

Calmness is the cradle of power.
Let this be understood, then, at starting; that the patient conquest of difficulties which rise in the regular and legitimate channels of business and enterprise is not only essential in securing the success which you seek but it is essential to that preparation of your mind, requisite for the enjoyment of your successes, and for retaining them when gained. So, day by day, and week by week; so month after month, and year after year, work on, and in that progress gain in strength and symmetry, and nerve and knowledge, that when success, patiently and bravely worked for, shall come, it may find you prepared to receive it and keep it.

So, day by day, and week by week; so month after month, and year after year, work on, and in that process gain strength and symmetry, and nerve and knowledge, that when success, patiently and bravely worked for, shall come, it may find you prepared to receive it and keep it,
Nature is the master of talents; genius is the master of nature.
Nothing so obstinately stands in the way of all sorts of progress as pride of opinion. While nothing is so foolish and baseless.
One thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast withers as rapidly; and that which grows slow endures.
Scholarship except by accident is never the measure of a person's power.
The choicest thing this world has for a man is affection.
The heart is wiser than the intellect.
The person who does not know how to live while they are making a living is a poorer person after their wealth is won than when they started.
The soul, like the body, lives by what it feeds on.
There is no royal road to anything. One thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slowly, endures.
Work and wait, work and wait is what God says to us in creation.
