horatio alger quotes

Horatio Alger Jr. was an American writer and novelist who lived in the 19th century. He is best known for his books, which often focused on the theme of “rags to riches” and the idea that hard work and determination can lead to success. Here are some quotes from Horatio Alger:

  1. “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” (Note: While this quote is often attributed to Steve Jobs, it is actually a misattribution. The quote actually comes from Alger’s book “Struggling Upward.”)
  2. “He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”
  3. “Success is not a matter of luck, it’s a matter of sticking to it.”
  4. “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
  5. “The boy who is going to make a great man must not make up his mind merely to overcome a thousand obstacles, but to win in spite of a thousand repulses and defeats.”
  6. “Be honest, be truthful, and have integrity in everything you do.”
  7. “There is no failure except in no longer trying.”
  8. “The ladder of success is never crowded at the top.”
  9. “The man who is too old to learn was probably always too old to learn.”
  10. “No one ever attains very eminent success by simply doing what is required of him; it is the amount and excellence of what is over and above the required that determines the greatness of ultimate distinction.”
