There may already be one on here, if there is bring it on up.

Everyone can get motivated by a famous quote or maybe it's not famous at all and you just like it.

What are your favorite quotes?

Here are some I found while browsing.

"It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed"
Theodore Roosevelt

"Never let the fear of striking out get in your way"
George Herman "Babe" Ruth

"The greatest mistake you can make in life is to continually be afraid you will make one"
Elbert Hubbard

"Our greatest glory consist not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall"
Oliver Goldsmith

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us"
Helen Keller

" We mustn't run away when things get hard. We should believe in ourselves and always fight it out. Only then will we achieve our dreams, as success belongs to those who believe."
Random

"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude."

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.

It is not fair to ask of others what you are not willing to do yourself.

We are afraid to care too much, for fear that the other person does not care at all.

You must do the things you think you cannot do.

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience by which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.

I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Very wise and somewhat humorous lady.

You are not judged on the number of times you fail but on the number of times you succeed and the number of times you succeed are in direct proportion to the number of times you fail and can keep on trying.
____________________________________________________________

I never see failure as failure but only as the negative feedback I need to change course in my direction.

On Arrowhead Stadium

Mike Shanahan -

"I know people have tried to prepare me but until you actually experience it, you really don't know how loud it is. It is a fun experience. I remember in that playoff game, that 14-10 (playoff game in 1998) -- and this is before the game -- I'm talking three or four minutes before the game and I am trying to talk to my son (Kyle). He is standing right next to me, I'm yelling and he can't hear me. I am yelling at the top of my voice trying to get him to get something and he has no idea what I am saying. That is how loud it was."

Rod Smith -

The first time I ever went in there it scared the hell out of me -- and that was just the national anthem," Smith remembered. "When they say, 'The home of the Chiefs' right there in the national anthem, I thought they were going to attack us. I thought 70,000 people were about to come out of the stands and get us."

On the homeless situation in America:

"That's a touchy subject to the Rock. The homeless situation here in America, The Rock feels like this--as long as the Rock still has his palatial palace down on South Beach, The Rock really couldn't give a damn whether they live in a Frigidaire box or a Kenmore box, as long as those homeless pieces of trash keep their cardboard homes off the Rock's freshly mowed grass, everything will be copacetic."--Dwayne Johnson.
