What is your favorite inspirational quote?

This may have been done already, but I was wondering what some other MFP members favorite inspirational quotes might be? Mine is:

"The more effort you put into something, the more you get in return."

--- and ---

"Whatever you want to do, do it now. There are only so many tomorrows."

What are some of yours?........

    This is the quote that got me through my weight loss journey and helped me achieve so many "firsts" aling the way.

    It's kinda long, but this is mine.

    "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while DARING GREATLY so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt

    You're as young as you think you are. - My grandma
  • A friend once told me this years ago. It has inspired me greatly.

    "If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got"
  • Don't give up what you truly want for what you want right now.
  • You won't know until you try.

    Works for a lot of things, but I think about it every time I am faced with something new and I am afraid I won't be able to do it. When I think back on all the things I have been able to do, once I tried them, I get inspired to try more new things. And when I really step back and look at all the hard things I have been able to accomplish, losing weight is one of the easiest!

    Sometimes opportunity knocks.. Sometimes, you got to break into opportunity's house, drag him out by the hair and make him your b**ch.
