Imagination

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.
For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
– Albert Einstein

Courage

“Courage doesn’t always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying ‘I will try again tomorrow.”
– Mary Anne Radmacher

Enthusiasm

“Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success.
When you do a thing, do it with all your might.
Put your whole soul into it.
Stamp it with your own personality.
Be active, be energetic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object.
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
