Aims


A being without an aim in life is like a cork floating upon the water, driven hither and thither by every wind that blows. - Karl G. Maeser

Above all be of single aim; have a legitimate and useful purpose, and devote yourself unreservedly to it. - James Allen

Aiming high in life is your responsibility to yourself. The possibility of failure should not be an excuse not to fulfil that responsibility. - Unknown

An aim in life is the only fortune worth finding. - Robert Luis Stevenson

An aimless life is always a troubled life. Every individual should have an aim. But do not forget that the quality of your aim will depend on the quality of your life. Your aim should be high and wide, generous and disinterested; this will make your life precious to yourself and to others. Whatever your ideal, it cannot be perfectly realized unless you have realized perfection in yourself. - Unknown

If you aim at nothing, you'll hit it every time. - Zig Ziglar

If you aim low, you hit low. - Gloria Roberson

If you would hit the mark, you must aim a little above it. - Henry Wadworth Longfellow

In the long run, men only hit what they aim at. - Henry David Thoreau

It is better to aim high and miss by a mile than to aim for a mud puddle and score a direct hit. - Unknown

One may miss the mark by aiming too high as too low. - Thomas Fuller

The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark. - Michelangelo

When an archer misses the mark, he turns and looks for the fault within himself. Failure to hit the bull’s-eye is never the fault of the target. To improve your aim – improve yourself. - Unknown

Who aimeth at the sky shoots higher much than he that means a tree. - George Herbert
