If you want something you will find a way. If you don't, you will find an excuse.

The one that I keep repeating to myself these days is "Failure isn't falling. Failure is not getting back up." I don't know who this is from.

Another one that I use when I'm feeling more playful is "I tried to contain myself, but I ESCAPED!"

This quote has found a way to make appearances throughout my life:

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Mark Twain

I can't choose just one, so here are 3 of my favorites!

"But I don't want to go among mad people," said Alice.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the cat. "We're all mad here."
If anybody wants a sheep, that is a proof that he exists.
"Goodbye," said the fox. "And now here is my secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
