You never know how strong you are, until strong is the only choice you have.
It's not what happens to you that determines how far you will go in life; it is how you handle what happens to you.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
If you think somebody cares about you and believes your life is worth saving, how can you give up?
(Movie quote) Rent
No day but today!
The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.
Lester B. Pearson
Failures are made only by those who fail to dare, not by those who dare to fail.
You can never quit. Winners never quit, and quitters never win.
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.
Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.
, nach Niederlage gegen Ken Norton am 31.03.1973 Muhammad Ali
I never thought of losing, but now that it's happened, the only thing is to do it right. That's my obligation to all the people who believe in me. We all have to take defeats in life.
- Campaign Like Clockwork Don't believe, Album: Neon For No One (Lyric)
Stop, when everyone tells you to run, take a chance
Don't listen when they tell you not to dance
How can you squander even one more day, not taking advantage of the greatest shifts of our generation? How dare you settle for less, when the world has made it so easy for you to be remarkable?
We could never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world.
Just had a good talk with God. Told me if we want something - work for it and he'll meet us halfway.
