Quotes regarding Build up:

Sourced[edit]

  • Wisdom and spirit of the Universe!
    Thou Soul, that art the Eternity of thought!
    And giv'st to forms and images a breath
    And everlasting motion! Not in vain
    By day or star-light thus from by first dawn
    Of childhood didst thou intertwine for me
    The passions that build up our human soul,
    Not with the mean and vulgar works of man,
    But with high objects, with enduring things,
    With life and nature, purifying thus
    The elements of feeling and of thought,
    And sanctifying, by such discipline
    Both pain and fear, until we recognize
    A grandeur in the beatings of the heart.#
    • William Wordsworth, Influence of Natural Objects in Calling Forth and Strengthening the Imagination in Boyhood and Early Youth

  • Build up your weaknesses until they become your strong points.
  • Don't expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong.
  • Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop the picture...Do not build up obstacles in your imagination.
