You have to dream before your dreams can come true.
We should not give up and we should not allow the problem to defeat us.
If we are not free,
No one will respect us.
Let us sacrifice our today so that our children can have a better tomorrow.
Climbing to the top demands strength, whether it is to the top of Mount Everest or to the top of your career.
Great dreams of great dreamers are always transcended.
Man needs his difficulties because they are necessary to enjoy success.
To succeed in your mission,
you must have single-minded devotion to your goal.
Life is a difficult game. You can win it only by retaining your birthright to be a person.
Be more dedicated to making solid achievements than in running after swift but synthetic happiness.
Excellence is a continuous process and not an accident.
Dream is not that you see in the sleep,
dream is that does not allow you to sleep.
Learning gives creativity,
Creativity leads to thinking,
Thinking provides knowledge,
Knowledge makes you great.
“your best teacher is your last mistake”
