Every great achievement is the story of a flaming heart. Every great achievement is the story of tremendous passion.
— Mary Lou Retton
— Anita Roddick
If you follow your passion, the money will follow. But if you chase the almighty dollar, you can easily lose that and end up with nothing.
— Elizabeth MacKay
Great dancers are not great because of their technique; they’re great because of their passion.
— Martha Graham
I owe so much of my success as a hockey player to what I have learned from my father. The passion he shows in his daily life has taught me to always love what I am doing. In loving my pursuits, I learned the value of working hard and enjoying the benefits that sacrifice and dedication bring.
— A.J. Mleczko
More money is not the answer; more discipline is. Until you decide to live on what you already make, more money will not help.
— Larry Burkett
Your plan to get wealth must include a willingness to do what you do best regardless of whether you are in the spotlight or behind the scenes, if you receive adequate compensation or are underpaid.
— T.D. Jakes
He who gathers money little by little makes it grow.
— Proverbs 13:11
God can release financial increase to those who will not be controlled by the love of money.
— T.D. Jakes
As a kid, my dad made us value everything we ever earned. If I wanted a new pair of skates, I had to caddy for weeks to earn the money to buy them. If I needed a new stick, I cleaned out the stalls in our local hockey rink to earn the money to buy it. You never get something for nothing in our house. It made me appreciate everything that was dear to me.

Happiness has more to do with what you do with what you have than with what you have.
— Dr. Bob Rotella
Happiness is like perfume; you can’t pour it on somebody else without getting a few drops on yourself.
— James Van Der Zee
Happiness is a byproduct of something greater, not an end in itself. Happiness cannot be pursued and caught, anymore than one can pursue a sunny day, put it in a bottle, and then bring it out on a rainy day to enjoy. True happiness comes from a different pursuit – the pursuit of God.
— Billy Graham
There is no key to happiness. The door is always open.
I believe the recipe for happiness to be just enough money to pay the monthly bills, a little surplus to give you confidence, a little too much work each day, enthusiasm for your work, a substantial share of good health, a couple of real friends and a wife and children to share life’s beauty with you.
— J. Kenfield Morley
The way to get ahead in this world is to do whatever work you are doing well, then you will be picked to do some other job that is not being done well.
— Samuel Vauclair
Be so good they can’t ignore you.
— Jerry Dunn
All successful employers are stalking men who will do the unusual, men who think, men who attract attention by performing more than is expected of them.
— Charles Schwab
Do a good job. You don’t have to worry about the money; it will take care of itself. Just do your best work – then try to trump it.
— Walt Disney
The only means of success is to render more and better service than is expected of you, no matter what your task may be. This is a habit followed by all successful people since the beginning of time. Therefore, I say the surest way to doom yourself to mediocrity is to perform only the work for which you are paid.
— Og Mandino
When starting out, don’t worry about not having enough money. Limited funds are a blessing, not a curse. Nothing encourages creative thinking in quite the same way.
— H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
I am indeed rich, since my income is superior to my expense, and my expense is equal to my wishes.
— Edward Gibbon
It’s not what you’d do with a million,
If riches should ever be your lot,
But what are you doing at present
With the dollar and quarter you’ve got.
There isn’t anything wrong in this world with making money, as long as you make it honestly, spend it judiciously and are generous with it.
— Lou Holtz
Once the longing for money comes, the longing also comes for what money can give – superfluous things. Our needs will increase, for one thing leads to another and the result will be endless dissatisfaction. It is not a sin to be rich. When it provokes avarice, it becomes a sin. Richness is given by God and it is our duty to divide it with those less favored.
— Mother Teresa
