One of the great joys of being a slip fielder who takes a catch is you are able to contribute to the bowler's success.

There are no easy catches in the slips. Rahul Dravid

Deborah Moggach

The word 'success' - who's defining it? It's about whether or not it makes me feel good. Four billion people don't have to see or hear it.

When I sit here and see that the eight brothers from the neighborhood that I grew up with still have success, it had to be magical. I doubt if you get another 'Wu-Tang Clan.'

If you want to do well in life financially, then you have to start with dollars and cents. Those are details. So every penny means something.

I think it's nice to work and then have success. Gabrielle Aplin

Even after 'Gangster' being a success, I was considered a B-grade actress and was a sidekick, even though I was good at what I did, and was jobless for two years. Kangna Ranaut

If not for the success that medicine has made, I might be part of a much different story right now. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

But I am very grateful for my success, and with success, of course, comes a whole lot of celebrity. Johnny Mathis
Success depends upon previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure. Confucius
In an ideal world, we would charge people a $10,000 success fee when they get married or a $5,000 success fee if they enter into a relationship with someone. Unfortunately, that's a little bit hard to track, although someday maybe we'll get around to that. Sam Yagan
I'm not a defender of old or new football managers. I believe in good ones and bad ones, those that achieve success and those that don't. Jose Mourinho
Successful people often exude confidence - it's obvious that they believe in themselves and what they're doing. It isn't their success that makes them confident, however. The confidence was there first. Travis Bradberry
I suppose I just had this Christian idea about how I ought to go about my life. I thought, 'If I work really hard and have a bit of success, the problems I'd had all my life would leave me.' But, of course, not a bit of it left me because Asperger's is not something you just get over or grow out of. Paddy Considine
If you have a successful run, everything comes to you. Nothing succeeds like success. John Barry
To me, success is seeing that justice is done. John Doar
That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well. Abraham Lincoln

The success combination in business is: Do what you do better... and: do more of what you do. David Joseph Schwartz

Regard every suggestion that your life may be a failure, that you are not made like those who succeed, and that success is not for you, as a traitor, and expel it from your mind as you would a thief from your house. Orison Swett Marden
Success is never final, but failure can be. Bill Parcells
The key to success is to get out into the store and listen to what the associates have to say. Sam Walton

The real secret of success is enthusiasm. Walter Chrysler
From the Olympian heights of an executive suite, in an atmosphere where your success is judged by the extent to which you can maximise profits, the overwhelming tendency must be to see people as units of production, as indices in your accountants' books. Jimmy Reid
The publishing scene in India is evolving rapidly, and the key challenge is to keep reinventing oneself so that one does not become formulaic.

In 2007, Michael Grimm, former Marine, former FBI agent, accountant and attorney, was poised for success as a small business owner. Instead, as alleged, Grimm made the choice to go from upholding the law to breaking it. In so doing, he turned his back on every oath he had ever taken. Loretta Lynch
Failure is not an option. Everyone has to succeed. Arnold Schwarzenegger
'Ashes To Ashes' is a victim of its own success. We started lots of trends. I like to think we had something to do with bringing back the high waist. It's so much more flattering. Keeley Hawes
Am I coasting on some early success? Yeah. It was a good lucky break for me. But I would rather earn my way back again than simply conform to what people are expecting. Liz Phair
In order for our country and economy to get on the right track again, we need a leader who understands how the real economy works and has the vision to fundamentally change Washington.

A lot of my success is because of what I look like. I know that. Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Beth Brooke
I find that, once you get into a position where you can afford a pair of shoes and a decent level of living, success in itself is empty. Michael Eisner
When I look in the mirror, I see someone who's happy with how he looks, because I was never one of the handsome Hollywood people. And I've had success as I've gotten older, because I'm able to play characters. I no longer get the girl, but I get the part. Michael Caine
Success in management requires learning as fast as the world is changing. Warren Bennis
My success is not who I am. Judith Guest

If you drew a diagram of weight gain and me getting more work, a mathematician would draw some conclusions from that. Zach Galifianakis
Men judge us by the success of our efforts. God looks at the efforts themselves. Charlotte Bronte

I think that failure by your own standards is certainly a form of success. Bonnie Hunt
Make treating yourself a priority and always remember your life is happening now. Don't put off all your dreams and pleasures to another day. In any balanced personal definition of success there has to be a powerful element of living life in the present. Mireille Guiliano

How does one measure the success of a museum? J. Paul Getty
When everything happens to you when you're so young, you're very lucky, but by the same token, you're never going to have that same feeling again. The first time anything happens to you - your first love, your first success - the second one is never the same. Lauren Bacall
Whether you come from a council estate or a country estate, your success will be determined by your own confidence and fortitude. Michelle Obama
Which is - you know, like check it out, I'm pretty young, I'm only about 40 years old. I still have maybe another four decades of work left in me. And it's exceedingly likely that anything I write from this point forward is going to be judged by the world as the work that came after the freakish success of my last book, right? Elizabeth Gilbert
Unlike Marvel, we are not setting up redundant organizations for expertise that exists. We will track all DC properties to measure financial success. Diane Nelson
I want to challenge myself to see where my limit is and experiment with a lot of different films. A lot of artists from Asia focus too much on their Asian background. I don't want to let go of my background, but to be a success in the U.S., which is my goal, I realize I need to surround myself with American filmmakers and producers. Rain
When I got my success, I became decadent for a while. This was 2003 to 2008. I fell for tiramisu really hard. I've become more moderate since, because African-Americans are prone to diabetes. Jill Scott
With the success of the last three or so years, when a lot of people start treating you differently, there's a danger that you may start to think of yourself differently. You rely on your friends to say, 'Hey, wake up!' David Schwimmer

I stand ready to lead us down a different path where we're lifted up by our desire to succeed, not dragged down by a resentment of success. Mitt Romney

Through perseverance many people win success out of what seemed destined to be certain failure. Benjamin Disraeli
Don't be afraid of failure; be afraid of petty success. Maude Adams

In London - and forget those extra public pressures on politicians - the lovely old Sloane world of manor houses simply hasn't cut it since Big Bang in 1986, the point at which Mrs. Thatcher really started to achieve her ambition to make this country more like America - its ambition, economy, it's very tangible measures of success. Peter York

People are the key to success or extraordinary success. Azim Premji
I feel like a hostage to fortune. Not that I am complaining. I wanted to play the role. But in truth I didn't think the show would be such a success. OK, I thought it would fail. Not because it was bad. I was confident it was good, but plenty of good things just sort of wither on the vine. Hugh Laurie
If I have learned anything, it is to keep my wife happy by sending her lavish gifts. Other men can learn from my success and send their wives and girlfriends fresh flowers for birthdays, anniversaries, and of course, Valentine's Day. Don Rickles
If there's a British film in the marketplace that is successful on a worldwide basis - whether it's 'A Room with a View,' 'Four Weddings' or 'The Full Monty' - money follows, and everyone tries to emulate that success. Eric Fellner
We need to build on the success of Social Security by developing bold and innovative ways for Americans to build wealth and save for retirement. I believe we can work together in a bipartisan manner to accomplish these goals. Debbie Stabenow
I mean, we are tribal by nature, and sometimes success and material wealth can divide and separate - it's not a new philosophy I'm sharing - more than hardship, hardship tends to unify. Colin Farrell
Successful people breed success. Phil Crosby
There are physical characteristics which are inherited. These include things like good looks, high intelligence, physical coordination. These attributes contribute to success in life, and success in life is a determinant of optimism. Martin Seligman

The life of Dumas is not only a monument of endeavour and success, it is a sort of labyrinth as well. It abounds in pseudonyms and disguises, in sudden and unexpected appearances and retreats as unexpected and sudden, in scandals and in rumours, in mysteries and traps and ambuscades of every kind. William Ernest Henley
Success for open source is when the term 'open source' becomes a non-factor in the decision making process, when people hear about Linux and compare it to Windows NT, and they compare it on the feature set and don't have much of an excuse not to use it. Brian Behlendorf

As you become more successful, the gender barrier disappears. The credibility challenges you have during your growing up years starts disappearing when you start demonstrating success. Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw
It is a mistake to suppose that men succeed through success; they much oftener succeed through failures. Precept, study, advice, and example could never have taught them so well as failure has done. Samuel Smiles
The successful man doesn't use others, other people use the successful man, for above all the success is of service. Mark Caine
Corporate executives and business owners need to realize that there can be no compromise when it comes to ethics, and there are no easy shortcuts to success. Ethics need to be carefully sown into the fabric of their companies. Vivek Wadhwa

Hope... is the companion of power, and the mother of success; for who so hopes has within him the gift of miracles. Samuel Smiles
I have no inflated ideas about success anyway. Trevor Dunn

Football has limited success in Europe. Chad Hurley
We are taught to consume. And that's what we do. But if we realized that there really is no reason to consume, that it's just a mind set, that it's just an addiction, then we wouldn't be out there stepping on people's hands climbing the corporate ladder of success. River Phoenix
Before success comes in any man's life, he's sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That's exactly what the majority of men do. Napoleon Hill
The season of failure is the best time for sowing the seeds of success. Paramahansa Yogananda
Success is always dangerous, and we need to be alert and avoid becoming the victims of our own success. Will we influence the world for Christ, or will the world influence us? Billy Graham

Sustainability is the key to our survival on this planet and will also determine success on all levels. Shari Arison
Experience tells us that a good foundation is critical for success in the Arctic and elsewhere. ExxonMobil's Sakhalin-1 project with Rosneft is an example where we have put this experience to work. Rex Tillerson
People repeat behaviour that leads to flooding their brains with pleasurable chemicals. The short-term reward loop acts over hours to years, and the long-term reproductive success loop over generations. Keith Henson
My formula for success is rise early, work late, and strike oil. J. Paul Getty
Every day of my life I walk with the idea that I am black, no matter how successful I am. And our success is tempered by that; you're successful in this way given the fact you are black, and most blacks don't get to that point. Danny Glover
Failure is only postponed success as long as courage 'coaches' ambition. The habit of persistence is the habit of victory. Herbert Kaufman
There's a spectrum of those moments of connection and the moments we fail to connect, going from super-large successes to failures. Success would be love, I guess, and failure could still be love, but the bad side; and loss. Aimee Bender
Over time, the welfare state has become dysfunctional in a surprising way. But in a way it became a victim of its own success: It became so successful at prolonging life, that it becomes financially unsustainable, unless you make major changes to things like retirement ages. Niall Ferguson
I thought that when you have more success that you'd feel more buoyed or feel more confident. But in fact my brain has the gift of switching it around and saying, 'Now people are expecting something. Now you're really going to let people down.' Maria Bamford
The men who miss success have two general alibis: 'I'm not a genius' is one; the other, 'There aren't the opportunities today there used to be.' Neither excuse holds. The first is beside the point; the second is altogether wrong. Charles M. Schwab
I think if I manage to juggle a personal life that I'm really happy with as well, as long as I manage to maintain balance, that's kind of the mark of success to me. Rose McIver
Formula for success: rise early, work hard, strike oil. J. Paul Getty
Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn't that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you. Marilyn Monroe
Success consecrates the most offensive crimes. Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Science ignores the spiritual realm because it is not amenable to scientific analysis. As importantly, the predictive success of Newtonian theory, emphasizing the primacy of a physical Universe, made the existence of spirit and God an extraneous hypothesis that offered no explanatory principles needed by science. Bruce Lipton
Leaders in China and India realize that science and technology lead to success and wealth. But many countries in the West graduate students into the unemployment line by teaching skills that were necessary to live in 1950. Michio Kaku
Take male strategies for success in the world. If you've got all the advantages, if you're attractive and clever and all of that, you will generally go for very high quality females. Susan Blackmore
I sometimes think it ironic for an ex-seaman, longshoreman, truck driver, policeman, bus driver, etc... to find success writing children's novels. Brian Jacques
Everyone wants to be paid well - I know that I certainly do. But there are lots of other satisfactions that we get from our work. To feel needed. To feel accomplishment. To believe that our work matters. Being a lawyer gives you a rare chance to experience that kind of success. Jeffrey Toobin
Starting a band is the easy part. Once you've formed the band, you have to tell a story, and that story requires songs. And not just good songs, but great songs. After a while, great songs won't do - they have to be the best. Success doesn't make it any easier. Each time I start a new record, it's a brand-new search. The Edge
The greatest sign of success for a teacher... is to be able to say, 'The children are now working as if I did not exist.' Maria Montessori
It was good to be a kid because I did not realise all the things that came with the success. Going to the Games, I was asked what I expected to do. Nadia Comaneci
I used to think that you could get to a level of success where the laws of the universe didn't apply. But they do. It's still life on life's terms, not on movie-star terms. I still have to work at relationships. I still have to work on my weight and some of my other demons. Chris Farley
I enjoy people who have passion, whether it is as a musician or whatever they do. All people who have success keep it very basic. Try your best. But without passion, you will not have success. Nobu Matsuhisa
When you achieve a certain amount of success, you want to be doing something else. Tate Donovan
Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals. Jim Rohn

America thinks of itself as a meritocracy, so people have more respect for success and more contempt for failure. Toby Young
It's not a field, I think, for people who need to have success every day: if you can't live with a nightly sort of disaster, you should get out. I wouldn't describe myself as lacking in confidence, but I would just say that the ghosts you chase you never catch. Michael Korda
My success is not due to any personal superiority over other people. John Philip Sousa
It's not about market share. If you have a successful company, you will get your market share. But to get a successful company, what do you have to have? The same metrics of success that your customer does. Gordon Bethune
Humility is the true key to success. Successful people lose their way at times. They often embrace and overindulge from the fruits of success. Humility halts this arrogance and self-indulging trap. Humble people share the credit and wealth, remaining focused and hungry to continue the journey of success. Rick Pitino
One of the things I realized... is how few success stories there are in websites or products or businesses that exist primarily for an altruistic purpose. Andrew Mason
The quick success was a bit strange to get used to. Fiona Apple
We released 'The Interview' through a variety of platforms, and we continue to look for other distribution options. Throughout this whole process, we never stopped - not for a single moment - trying to secure a broad release. Our studio takes great pride in continuing to grow the release of this movie and making it a success. Michael Lynton
I'm a long-time fan of Rob Long, and his books are hugely re-readable, detailing the ins and outs of being a Hollywood comedy writer with a past success but with everything to prove. Danny Wallace
Indeed I regard the enduring support which I have received over the years from all sections of the community in Ballymena as being more than sufficient recognition for any success which I may have achieved as an actor. Liam Neeson

Excess is success. Roberto Cavalli
There are over 2,000 direct clones of the Groupon business model. However, there's an equal amount of proof that the barriers to success are enormous. In spite of all those competitors, only a handful are remotely relevant. Andrew Mason
Follow your instincts. Do the kind of writing you love to do and do best. 'Stiff' was an oddball book - I mean, a funny book about cadavers? - and I worried that it would be too unconventional. In the end, that's what has made it a success, I think. Mary Roach
To be successful you have to be lucky, or a little mad, or very talented, or find yourself in a rapid growth field. Edward de Bono
I have had all of the disadvantages required for success. Larry Ellison

No man can be a failure if he thinks he's a success; If he thinks he is a winner, then he is. Robert W. Service
I'm a forgiver. I might not forget, but I forgive. My mother, father and older brother always told me: 'Don't hold grudges. If you do that, you don't lower yourself down to your adversary. Just treat people the way you want to be treated.' I honestly think that's why I was able to survive and have some success. Monte Irvin
