“Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but always paddling like hell underneath.”
“The pursuit, even of the best things, ought to be calm and tranquil.”
-Marcus Tullius Cicero
“Having guts” means, being graceful under pressure
“Pressure is a word that is misused in our vocabulary. When you start thinking of pressure, it’s because you’ve started to think of failure.”
“The only pressure you’re under is the pressure you put on yourself.”
“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.
-St. Francis de Sales
“The secret of success is to be in harmony with existence, to be always calm to let each wave of life wash us a little farther up the shore.”
“The pressure of adversity does not affect the mind of the brave man… It is more powerful than external circumstances.”
