I love this quote: Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

And I saw this version today LOL:

Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

Kathleen in Canada

Life's not about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain.

My two favorite motivating quotes (fitness-wise, that is) are:

"If you don't take care of your body, where will you live?" (I don't remember who said it; she was interviewed in Health Magazine many years ago.

"It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard everybody would do it. The hard is what makes it great." ~A League of Their Own

"If you don't take care of your body, where will you live?"

"It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard everybody would do it. It's the hard that makes it great."

I find this incredibly (if oddly) comforting:

Shall I say it again? In order to arrive there,
To arrive where you are, to get from where you are not,
You must go by a way wherein there is no ecstasy.
In order to arrive at what you do not know
You must go by a way which is the way of ignorance.
In order to possess what you do not possess
You must go by the way of dispossession.
In order to arrive at what you are not
You must go through the way in which you are not.
And what you do not know is the only thing you know
And what you own is what you do not own
And where you are is where you are not.

-T.S. Eliot, from "The Four Quartets," in which much wisdom is hid.

If a man speaks in the forrest and there is no woman there to hear him, is he still wrong?

I had to dig deep for this one. It was on a friends email signature; and I couldn't remember which friend. This says it all for me.

And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.

I love google! The quote reminds me of something else: a poem in the voice of a girl who died young, thrown by a horse. In the poem, she is speaking, and I'll paraphrase the part that has stayed with me for many, many years. Something like, "don't mourn my death, all you couch potatoes. You've never even lived!"

(Wink - something else to google! It's my overwhelming, sedentary, favorite activity, but we're leaving for the weekend.) emoticon emoticon

line to google "I died doing what I loved."

Swifturtle - I googled that quote and the leading candidate for who said it is a motorcycle racer named Bill McKenna, quoted in Cycle magazine in 1982. It is also attributed to Hunter Thompson and was used in a Nissan ad.
Regardless, it is a great life philosophy

To see one of my favourites, look down at my signature.

Another one is by Teddy Roosevelt from a speech to cadets at St Cyr Military Academy in France. It sums up my philosopy in life and probably my personality in a way too.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done 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 because there is not effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the 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 he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

The Vision of a Champion is someone who is bent over, drenched in sweat, at the point of exhaustion, when no one else is watching.
- Anson Dorrance in a note to Mia Hamm.

I've read a lot that I like on others' pages and in their signatures. But my favorite says why I'm on this team:

I DON'T KNOW AND YOU DON'T EITHER. "seen on a bumper sticker" is all I know.

There's another one I want to post here. It could be my favorite one relevant to Sparkgoals:

�Life is not a journey to the grave with intentions of arriving safely in a pretty well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming ... WOW! What a ride!�
~Author Unknown

I took this from CALGALFOX's signature, but I think it's on more than one person's signature.
