"There are some things success is not. It's not fame. It's not money or power. Success is waking up in the morning so excited about what you have to do that you literally fly out the door. It's getting to work with people you love. Success is connecting with the world and making people feel. It's finding a way to bind together people who have nothing in common but a dream. It's falling asleep at night knowing you did the best job you could. Success is joy and freedom and friendship. And success is love."
- Jennifer Garrison, Fame (2009).
"Réussir ce n’est pas toujours ce qu’on croit. Ce n’est pas devenir célèbre, ni riche ou encore puissant. Réussir c’est sortir de son lit le matin et être heureux de ce qu’on va faire durant la journée, si heureux qu’on a l’impression de s’envoler. C’est travailler avec des gens qu’on aime. Réussir, c’est être en contact avec le monde et communiquer sa passion. C’est trouver une façon de rassembler des gens qui n’ont peut-être rien d’autre en commun qu’un rêve. C’est se coucher le soir en se disant qu’on a fait du mieux qu’on a pu. Réussir c’est connaître la joie, la liberté et l’amitié. Je dirais que réussir, c’est aimer."
- Jennifer Garrison, Fame (2009).
“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”
- Maya Angelou

"To succeed takes more than the desire to win. It also takes the acceptance that we could fail."

- Simon Sinek

“Don't aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one's surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run—in the long-run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it”

- Viktor Frankl, Man's Search For Meaning.
"If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather travel the worn paths of accepted success."
- John Rockfeller

"Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success."

- Henry Ford
