    This one isn't really relevant to me but I think it was on a tsr thread. Guess it just makes you think that that tou should be you. -"I wish I was the person that I was, when I was wishing for the person I am now"

    I also really like "you miss 100% of the shots you dont take" I'm trying to apply that to my life now really.

    I made that up, but it's true.

    I am your constant companion,I am your greatest helper or your heaviest burden.
    I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
    I am at your command.
    Half of the tasks that you do, you may as well turn them over to me
    and I will do them quickly and correctly.
    I am easily managed, you must merely be firm with me.
    Show me exactly how you want something done;
    after a few lessons I will do it automatically.
    I am the servant of all great people and alas of all failures as well.

    Those who are great I have made great, those who are failures I have made failures.
    I am not a machine, but I work with all the precision of a machine,
    plus the intelligence of a person.
    Now you may run me for profit or you may run me for ruin.
    It makes no difference to me.

    Take me, Train me, be firm with me, and I will lay the world at your feet.
    Be easy with me and I will destroy you.

    Who am I? I am called Habit.


    Not quite a quote, but I printed it, and put it on my wall, to always remind me how important good habits are!

    “Religious distress is at the same time the expression of real distress and the protest against real distress. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people.”
