Post your favorite inspirational quotes here.
I think a lot of people here could use some encouragement these days.

"Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right."

1. On parents....
At 6 we love them

At 16 we hate them

At 26 we forgive them

At 36 we become them

6. I'm a Kansan - that's not inspirational!
I'm in Texas now - is it progress or regression?

8. More, more...
The best way to predict the future is to create it!

When I hear somebody sigh, "Life is hard," I am always tempted to ask, "Compared to what?"

Keep your mind full and your bowels clean.

We are born naked, wet, and hungry. Then things get worse.

If the shoe fits, get another one just like it.

The things that come to those who wait may be the things left by those who got there first.

When you're swimming in the creek and an eel bites your cheek, that's a moray!

Everybody lies, but it doesn't matter since nobody listens.

It is said that if you line up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try and pass them.

Always take two Baptists fishing with you. If you bring only one he will drink all of your beer.

9. Life should be lived so vividly and intensely that...
thoughts of another life or a longer life are completely unnecessary.

11. Nelson Mandela, 1994 Inagural Speech.
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. You playing small does'nt serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

12. "Even if you are on the right track,
you'll get run over if you just sit there."
