    "It's incredibly easy to misattribute quotes to people on the internet"
    - Legolas

    Also
    "You can learn most about a man by watching how he treats those who can do nothing for him" or words to that effect by somebody. The internet will probably suggest it was Einstein. He said everything on the internet.

    "If you have never failed, you have never tried" - no idea
    "You never fail until you stop trying" - Einstein

    Two quotes that I live my life by. I try not to let failure get me down because it shows that I have tried for something that wasn't easy. I also keep in mind that I haven't truly failed until I give up completely. These quotes helped me so much whilst I was hunting for a job. It's a bit lame but I wrote them out and stuck them on my computer so I could look at them when I'd just got a rejection or if I was having trouble with an application.
    " if youve never failed, youve never lived" - me

    it's almost the same but...

    I think the attributions are accurate, but the sentiments remain even if they're not. I always love a good quote.

    Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

    It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

    If you don’t imagine, nothing ever happens at all.

    I have an obsession with quotes, but I think these are the ones that apply to my life the most.

    I don't know what to say, really. Three minutes 'til the biggest battle of our professional lives all comes down to today. Now either we heal as a team or we're gonna crumble, inch by inch, play by play, until we're finished. We're in hell right now, gentlemen, believe me. And, we can stay here, get the **** kicked out of us, or we can fight our way back into the light. We can climb outta hell, one inch at a time.Now, I can't do it for ya. I'm too old. I look around. I see these young faces, and I think, I mean, I made every wrong choice a middle-aged man can make. I, uh, I pissed away all my money, believe it or not. I chased off anyone who's ever loved me. And lately, I can't even stand the face I see in a mirror. You know, when you get old in life, things get taken from you. I mean that's, that's, that's part of life. But, you only learn that when you start losin' stuff. You find out life's this game of inches, so is football. Because in either game - life or football - the margin for error is so small. I mean, one half a step too late or too early and you don't quite make it. One half second too slow, too fast, and you don't quite catch it. The inches we need are everywhere around us. They're in every break of the game, every minute, every second.
    On this team, we fight for that inch. On this team, we tear ourselves and everyone else around us to pieces for that inch. We claw with our fingernails for that inch. Because we know when we add up all those inches, that's gonna make the ****in' difference between winnin' and losin'! Between livin' and dyin'! I'll tell ya this - in any fight, it's the guy who's willin' to die who's gonna win that inch. And I know if I'm gonna have any life anymore, it's because I'm still willin' to fight and die for that inch. Because that's what livin' is! The six inches in front of your face!!
    Now, I can't make you do it. You gotta look at the guy next to you. Look into his eyes! Now I think you're gonna see a guy who will go that inch with ya. You're gonna see a guy who will sacrifice himself for this team because he knows, when it comes down to it, you're gonna do the same for him! That's a team, gentleman! And, either we heal, now, as a team, or we will die as individuals. That's football, guys. That's all it is. Now, what are you gonna do?

    I do love a good quote

    Sedit qui timuit ne non succederet = I won't sit still for fear of failure.

    look after the pennies and the pounds will look after you.

    Beauty, wealth, material things: these don't matter on our deathbed, only love and hapiness - me

    life is a journey, not a destination.

    If everything in life was easy, would you ever like you'd truly achieved? - me

    at the end of the day, it's night.
