He who stops being better stops being good.
Our ideals are our better selves.
It's better to go into the world half-cocked than not to go into the world at all.
Years ago I recognized my kinship with all living things, and I made up my mind that I was not one bit better than the meanest on the earth. I said then, and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it; while there is a criminal element, I am of it; while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.
Every day, in every way, I am getting better and better.
Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. What if they are a little coarse, and you may get your coat soiled or torn? What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled in the dirt once or twice? Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble.
It is a common delusion that you make things better by talking about them.
The future will be better tomorrow.
Try to leave the Earth a better place than when you arrived.
