Other Napoleon Hill quotes:
Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat. When your desires are strong enough you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve.

Willpower and desire, when properly combined, make an irresistible pair.
A positive mental attitude is the right mental attitude.
Fortunes gravitate to men whose minds have been prepared to attract them, just as surely as water gravitates to the ocean.
Render more service than you are paid for and eventually you will be paid more for less services rendered.
No man can become a permanent success without taking others along with him.
When you get yourself under complete control, you can be your own boss.
Fear, the worst of all enemies, can be effectively cured by forced repetition of acts of courage.
The one and only thing over which you have complete and total control is how you focus your own mind. Luckily, this determines everything else.
