What is your favorite motivational saying or quote?

Recommended Posts

Sometimes I do what I want to do. Sometimes I do what I have to do.

If you want to see the truth you will need contrast, not adherence to a single idea. The truth is in the contrast.

You may know a thing and it is not true. But in understanding, there can be ONLY truth.

EDIT: And the one that started me down a great path:

The truth, that which is happening right now, cannot be written down or spoken. Once it is it becomes knowledge and knowledge is not truth because knowledge is fixed in time. Truth is ever moving, ever changing. Once you pause to reflect, it is not truth.

I saw the Beach Boys once in Philadelphia and Jimmy Page was sitting in on guitar and Mr T came out to play drums and said

"Let's get this surf thing going" bam bam bam bam. Was awesome and pretty much sums it up for me. I use it a lot.

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.
