Apathy can be overcome by enthusiasm, and enthusiasm can only be aroused by two things: first, an ideal, with takes the imagination by storm, and second, a definite intelligible plan for carrying that ideal into practice.
Henry David Thoreau:
None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm.
Never let your zeal outrun your charity. The former is but human, the latter is divine.
Oliver Wendell Holmes:
It's faith in something and enthusiasm for something that makes a life worth living.
Ralph Waldo Emerson:
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent.
W. Clement Stone:
When you discover your mission, you will feel its demand. It will fill you with enthusiasm and a burning desire to get to work on it.
Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
