I'm a believer in finding a passion, hard work and definitely not giving up on your dream.

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan,Press on,has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.
Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.
It's true hard work never killed anyone but I figure why take the chance?
I believe in hard work. It keeps the wrinkles out of the mind and spirit.
Gentlemen, you are now about to embark on a course of studies which will occupy you for two years. Together, they form a noble adventure. But I would like to remind you of an important point. Nothing that you will learn in the course of your studies will be of the slightest possible use to you in after life, save only this, that if you work hard and intelligently you should be able to detect when a man is talking rot, and that, in my view, is the main, if not the sole, purpose of education.

A terrace nine stories high rises from a handful of earth; A journey of a thousand miles starts from beneath one's feet.
Founding a company is hard. Most of it isn't smooth. You'll have to make very hard decisions. You have to fire a few people. Therefore, if you don't believe in your mission, giving up is easy. The majority of founders give up. But the best founders don't give up.
