Inspirational quotes

Here's a few for you, I know they're aimed athletes but I'm gonna share them anyway.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"courage is not persistence WITHOUT fear. real courage is persistence DESPITE fear."

"To become who no one else is...you must work like no one else does"

"Pain is weakness leaving the body."

"This is the beginning of a new day.
God has given me this day to use as I will.
I can waste it or use it for good,
but what I do today is important,
because I am exchanging a day of my life for it
When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever,
leaving in its place, something that I have traded for it.
I want it to be gain, and not loss;
good, and not evil; success, and not failure,
in order that I shall not regret the price I have paid for it."

"Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be the miracle."

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'll leave you with the words of Martyn Luthur King Jr.

"If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven played music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well." - MLK Jr.

"Most powerlifters share some common defects. We, as a whole for whatever reason, LOVE to punish, beat and torture ourselves beyond the limits of mind and body. It is our spirit that prevails. This defect of intelligence and sensibility pushes us on to the next level, makes us better and stronger. "

How about the immortal cricket quote (though I forget who said it!): "The batsman's Holding the bowler's Willey".
