    motivational quotes






    kinda silly i know but i like reading/collecting motivational/inspirational quotes so i thought we could start a thread about them. post your favorite quote(s) ... it doesnt matter if they are already listed here. perhaps this thread will benefit someone whenever they get discouraged or maybe they will just brighten someones day.

    some of my favorites...

    “Obsession is a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated.”

    “Rehab is for quitters.”

    “The pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; the optimist, the opportunity in every difficulty.”

    “There is no finish line.”

    “Pain is temporary. Glory lasts forever.”

    "Positive anything is better than negative nothing."

    "Everyone takes a sh*t, but few people give a sh*t."

    Kao Dung, 11th Century Chinese philosopher.
    It's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.

    -- Jack Lew, then director of the Office of Management and Budget, in Feb. 16, 2011 testimony before the Senate Budget Committee.

    Drama is the result of an attempt
    to find wholeness & success
    in the midst of forces that have been
    birthed in chaos and nurtured in confusion.
