Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting ó in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard ó reaching for the highest that is in us ó becoming all that we can be. If we do our best, we are a success. Success is the maximum utilization of the ability that you have.
As quoted in The Subconscious Diet : It's Not What You Put in Your Mouth; It Is What You Put in Your Mind (2005) by Hugh B. Sanders, p. 104

I don't have a problem with someone using their talents to become successful, I just don't think the highest calling is success. Things like freedom and the expansion of knowledge are beyond success, beyond the personal. Personal success is not wrong, but it is limited in importance, and once you have enough of it it is a shame to keep striving for that, instead of for truth, beauty, or justice.

Richard M. Stallman

If you feel comfortable, and you feel happy, and successful at your job, then thatís success. You define that as success, then thatís success. Success is not a general thing. Itís a personal thing. Itís a personal attribute.

Lupe Fiasco

I never really cared about achieving commercial success. As soon as I was signed to a record company, I felt like I made it because I was able to quit my day job. To me, success was just not having to have a boss and not having a day job. So Iíve been living my own version of success since the early í90s when I first got signed and I havenít had a job since then. Iím pretty happy about that. When I did have a little bit of commercial success, it really didnít suit my temperament at all. Iím a terrible public person. Iím happier where I am now.

Juliana Hatfield

The success of sainthood is the success attained by struggle and suffering and achieved by faith; a success of honor, of clean hands and pure heart, of service to man and glory to God.

William Croswell Doane

Success is a state of mind. If you want success, start thinking of yourself as a success.
