Just a couple of quotes I have collected hopefully they mean something to you guys and help keep you getting through your day. Enjoy! :wink:

Quotes:
Everyone's a star and deserves the ability to twinkle.

Giving up doesn't always mean you are weak … sometimes it means that you are strong enough to let go.

If you get ignored by some one, it means that you have been notice by that person first.

It is nice to be important but it is much more important to be nice.

Everyone thinks that bad things happen to "someone else". Never forget, we're all "someone else" to someone else.

When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place.

Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia. :lol:

People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.

Yay, Lucas! :clap:

I love reading quotes, and those are some very good ones. They really make you stop and think about what you just read, and how it applies to your own life.

Very inspiring also.

Anyone got any more quotes??

Yes, very nice quotes. The two that mention giving up seem to contradict each other in a way, don't you think? :hmm:

I always liked that one line from Skies of Arcadia. I'm not sure exactly how it goes, but it was something like "Impossible is a word people people use to feel better when they quit."

A man who sleeps without a dream wastes eight hours everynight.

Aim for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land somewhere among the stars...

If there was no music life would B-flat.

When asked the 7 wonders of the world, a 2nd grader replies, "Sight, Taste, Touch, Hearing, Smell, Life, and Love."

A twenty dollar bill, you want it. A crumpled twenty dollar bill, you want it. A crumpled, stepped on 20 dollar bill, you still want it. An ancient, decrepit, crumpled, stepped on 20 dollar bill, you still want it....You can be old, beat up, put down, and even partially destroyed, but you're still one human being, and your still just as valuable as the day you were created.

Sparky, and everyone who posted above, those are some wonderful and very inspiring and uplifting quotes! :clap:

I really needed those today. Thanks everyone! :yes:

Keep 'em coming. :)

Here's one I saw the other day. I've seen it before, but for some reason it really stuck with me this time:

"Lead, follow, or get out of the way."

Bumping this thread up which was originally started by Lucas in 2009. :)

Anyone have any favorite quotes to add, feel free to do so. :yes:

Here's a few I just recently found.

"Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can." ....by Danny Kaye

"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.".....by Henry David Thoreau

"If opportunity doesn't knock...build a door!"...by Milton Berle

"Even if you are on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there."....by Will Rogers

"Always leave enough time in your life to do something that makes you happy, satisfied, even joyous. That has more effect on economic well being than any other single factor." by Paul Hawken

I got one, and I think it is from 3rd Rock from the Sun.

”If you want to punch someone’s nose, aim for the back of the head.”

I know, it can sound violent and all, but. It can also mean that when doing something, you should try to go beyond? I dunno, I interpreted it that way.
