Default Inspirational Quotes

What quotes inspire you?

I have some.

"I can accept failure, but I can't accept not trying"

"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all"

"The friend in my adversity I shall always cherish most. I can better trust those who helped relieve the gloom of my darkest hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity."

"courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you can lose"

"don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened"

If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you're right.

Its better to have never tried at all, than to have tried and failed.

I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'

-Muhammad Ali

"Champions are made from something they have deep inside them... a dream."
- Muhammad Ali

"It isn't the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it's the pebble in your shoe."
- Muhammad Ali

"It's lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believed in myself."
- Muhammad Ali

"It's the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen."
- Muhammad Ali

"Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even."
- Muhammad Ali

"The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses - behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights."
- Muhammad Ali

"What keeps me going is goals."
- Muhammad Ali

My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.


JFK would be a moderate Republican...by today's standards.

"Whoever said illegal was the easy way out couldn't understand the
mechanics
And the workings of the underworld, granted
Nine to five is how to survive, I ain't tryin' to survive
I'm tryin' to live it to the limit and love it a lot" Jay Z
