Other quotes by William Feather

“Temporary success can be achieved in spite of lack of other fundamental qualities, but no advancements can be maintained without hard work.”

“Too many of us wait to do the perfect thing, with the result we do nothing. The way to get ahead is to start now. While many of us are waiting until conditions are “just right” before we go ahead, others are stumbling along, fortunately ignorant of the dangers that beset them. By the time we are, in our superior wisdom, decided to make a start, we discover that those who have gone fearlessly on before, have, in their blundering way, traveled a considerable distance. If you start now, you will know a lot next year that you don’t know now, and that you will not know next year, if you wait.”

“Almost any idea is good if a man has ability and is willing to work hard.”
