The expectations of life depend upon diligence; the mechanic that would perfect his work must first sharpen his tools.
Diligence is the mother of good luck, and God gives all things to industry. Work while it is called today, for you know not how much you may be hindered tomorrow. One today is worth two tomorrows; never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today.
What we hope ever to do with ease, we must learn first to do with diligence.
Who makes quick use of the moment, is a genius of prudence.
He who labors diligently need never despair; for all things are accomplished by diligence and labor.
