Donald Trump

Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your
self-confidence.
Robert Frost

Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct
individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common
people to attain uncommon results.
Andrew Carnegie

Even when repressed, inequality grows; only the man who is below the average in economic
ability desires equality; those who are conscious of superior ability desire freedom, and in the
end superior ability has its way.
Will Durant

The ability to subordinate an impulse to a value is the essence of the proactive person.
Stephen R. Covey

Being financially rich and having the ability to live like a millionaire are fundamentally two very
different things. Money is multiplied in practical value depending on the number of W's you
control in your life: what you do, when you do it, where you do it, and with whom you do it. I
call this the "freedom multiplier."
Tim Ferriss

Do you know the most important trait a man can have? It is not executive ability; it is not a
great mentality; it is not kindliness, nor courage, nor a sense of humor, though each of these
is of tremendous importance. In my opinion, it is the ability to make friends, which, boiled
down, means the ability to see the best in man.
Dale Carnegie

Ability without honor is useless.
Cicero

The world judge of men by their ability in their profession, and we judge of ourselves by the
same test; for it is on that on which our success in life depends.
William Hazlitt

There are evils that have the ability to survive identification and go on forever... money, for
instance, or war.
Saul Bellow

True generosity is the ability to accept ingratitude.
American proverb

If you don't love yourself, you cannot love others. You will not be able to love others. If you
have no compassion for yourself then you are not able of developing compassion for others.
Dalai Lama

Winners have the ability to step back from the canvas of their lives like an artist gaining
perspective. They make their lives a work of art - an individual masterpiece.
Denis Waitley

Competence goes beyond words. It's the leader's ability to say it, plan it, and do it in such a
way that others know that you know how. And know that they want to follow you.
John C. Maxwell

I've got a woman's ability to stick to a job and get on with it when everyone else walks off
and leaves it.
Margaret Thatcher

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to
look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can
take the next thing that comes along." You must do the thing you think you cannot do. 
Eleanor Roosevelt

A man's way of doing things is the direct result of the way he thinks about things. To do
things in a way you want to do them, you will have to acquire the ability to think the way
you want to think; this is the first step toward getting rich.
Wallace D. Wattles

Suitable ability in the suitable place.
Japanese proverb

Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for
themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.
Wayne Dyer

Personal power is the ability to take action.
Anthony Robbins

Capitalism demands the best of every man – his rationality – and rewards him accordingly. It
leaves every man free to choose the work he likes, to specialize in it, to trade his product for
the products of others, and to go as far on the road of achievement as his ability and
ambition will carry him.
Ayn Rand

Your greatest asset is your earning ability. Your greatest resource is your time.
Brian Tracy

Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.
Stephen Hawking

Related to mastering your emotions is the ability to distance yourself from the present

Roman deity and guardian of all gates and doorways, you must be able to look in both
directions at once.
Robert Greene

He is able who thinks he is able.
Buddha

The mark of a great player is in his ability to come back. The great champions have all come
back from defeat.
Sam Snead

Cowardice, as distinguished from panic, is almost always simply a lack of ability to suspend
the functioning of the imagination.
Ernest Hemingway

Fear is a bigger disability than having no arms and no legs.
Nick Vujicic

All America loses when any person is denied or forced out of a job because of sexual
orientation. Being gay, the last time I thought about it, seemed to have nothing to do with
the ability to read a balance book, fix a broken bone, or change a spark plug.
Bill Clinton
