— Samuel Johnson
There are but two roads that lead to an important goal and to the doing of great things: strength and perseverance. Strength is the lot of but a few privileged men; but austere perseverance, harsh and continuous, may be employed by the smallest of us and rarely fails of its purpose, for its silent power grows irresistibly greater with time.

— Psalm 41:1-3
Goals help you overcome short-term problems.
— Hannah More
The mere act of defining a goal puts you that much closer to achieving it.
— Ron Blue
When you know you are working toward a goal, when there is a challenge to be met, you are more likely to rise to the occasion and perform at your best than when there is no deadline to be met or no task to be completed.
— Richard Chang
Happiness, wealth and success are byproducts of goal setting; they cannot be the goal themselves.
— John Condry
The person with a fixed goal, a clear picture of his desire, or an ideal always before him, causes it, through repetition, to be buried deeply in his subconscious mind and is thus enabled, thanks to its generative and sustaining power, to realize his goal in a minimum of time and with a minimum of physical effort. Just pursue the thought unceasingly. Step by step you will achieve realization, for all your faculties and powers become directed to that end.
— Claude Bristol

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.
— Pat LaFontaine
