"We work to become, not to acquire."
"There is no failure except in no longer trying."
Elbert Hubbard's quotes on friendship and hard work are really inspiring and tend to incentivize us. He tells us not to explain things to our friends because they don't need that. They understand us without explanation. It is equally a futile exercise explaining things to our enemies because they will never believe us.
If you have to succeed you should put your heart and soul into it. Hard work is the secret of success. Through continuous practice you will improve significantly. There is only a little competition for those who work with dedication. The people who have succeeded are those who have exerted themselves, who were happy even in the most difficult situation and those who have loved a lot of people.
People have a bunch of good and bad habits. Good friends are those who accept you with all your mistakes. He knows you inside out, but chooses to be with you. He is who is called a faithful friend. Elbert Hubbard has beautifully explained the wonderful relationship called friendship. A friend is a person who knows you 100%. But still loves you. How true isn't it?
