Money doesn’t buy happiness, but neither can poverty.

One of the reasons most people don’t do well in life is because success is usually disguised behind hard work.
– Anthony Robbins, Unlimited Power

It is the mind that maketh good of ill, that maketh wretch or happy, rich or poor.
– Edmund Spenser

Tagalog Translation: Ang isipan natin ang nagpapabuti sa kamalasan, nakakapagpasama o nakakapagpasaya, nakakapagpayaman o nakakapagpahirap.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly;
who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;
but who does actually strive to do the deeds;
who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,
and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
– Theodore Roosevelt

Tagalog Translation: Hindi mahalaga ang manlalait; hindi ang nanunuro kung saan nadadapa ang malakas, o kung saan ang gumagawa ay makakagawa ng mas-mabuti.
Ang karangalan ay para sa mga naroroon sa labanan, ang mukha na marumi sa alikabok, pawis, at dugo;
nagpapakitang-gilas at tapang;
nagkakamali, paulit-ulit na kinukulang, dahil walang pagsisikap kung walang pagkakamali at pagkukulang;
pero nagsisikap para gawin ang kinakailangan;
ang nakakakilala sa sigla, sa panata;
ang nabubuhay sa marangal na hangarin;
na sa pinakamagaling alam ang tuwa ng tagumpay,
at sa pinakakawawa, kung matalo, ay natalo habang sumusubok ng higit, para ang kaniyang lugar sa mundo ay hindi sa mga duwag na hindi nakakakilala sa tagumpay o pagkatalo.


An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
– Benjamin Franklin

Tagalog Translation: Ang pamumuhunan sa kaalaman ay namumunga ng pinakamabuting interest/dibidendo.

The poor do not need charity; they need inspiration. Charity only sends them a loaf of bread to keep them alive in their wretchedness, or gives them an entertainment to make them forget for an hour or two; but inspiration will cause them to rise out of their misery. If you want to help the poor, demonstrate to them that they can become rich; prove it by getting rich yourself.
– Wallace D. Wattles, The Science of Getting Rich

Tagalog Translation: Hindi kailangan ng mahihirap ang limos; kailangan nila ng inspirasyon.
Ang limos ay nagbibigay lamang ng tinapay para mabuhay sila sa paghihirap, o bigyan sila ng aliw para makalimot sila ng ilang oras; pero ang inspirasyon ang mag-aangat sa kanila mula sa paghihirap.
Kung gusto mong makatulong sa mga mahihirap, ipakita mo na kaya nilang yumaman; patunayan mo ito sa iyong pagsisikap at pagyaman.
