Genius only means hard-working all one‘s life.
Great works are performed not by strengh, but by perseverance.
I have nothing to offer but blood, boil, tears and sweat.
For man is man and master of his fate.
There is no such thing as a great talent without great will .
A strong man will struggle with the storms of fate.
Energy and persistence conquer all things.
Cease to struggle and you cease to live.
A thousand-li journey is started by taking the first step.
Constant dripping wears away the stone.
A young idler, an old beggar.
No pain, no gain.
There is no royal road to learning.
The first step is always the hardest.
Well begun is half done.
Nothing is impossible to a willing heart.
Action speaks louder than words.
Business may be troublesome, but idleness is pernicious.
Never think yourself above business.
Do business, but be not a slave to it.
They who cannot do as they would, must do as theycan.
