2216. Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

2217. Most people search high and wide for the keys to success. If they only knew, the key to their dreams lies within.

2218. There are so many privileges and immunities denied us as citizens, which we are entitled to enjoy equally with others, that we would be discouraged at the prospect of the long fight we have before us to secure them, if we did not stop to reflect that, by our history as well as the history of others, they only succeed who refuse to fail and who fight all the time for theirs whatever the obstacles. I feel that way about it now at the age of 75 as I did at the age of 21. I want all the young and the old people of the race to feel about it in the same way.

T. Thomas Fortune, 1856-1928 Journalist

2220. If you have achieved any level of success, then pour it into someone else. Success is not success without a successor.

T.D. Jakes Evangelist

2221. We surround ourselves with images of success to hide our secret fears.

T.D. Jakes Evangelist
