    I noticed MJ changed his avatar and it displays the following quote.

    "The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." - Friedrich Nietzsche

    That's gold.

    I figured a "Quote of the Day - QOTD" thread would be a good thing to start. It might even rank high in Google.

    My favorite quote is a Robert Frost one; it is not related to the fastlane or receiving money, but here it is:

    A mother takes twenty years to make a man of her boy, and another woman makes a fool of him in twenty minutes.

    Simple, but very powerful:

    "If you believe it - you can achieve it" - I don't know whether this quote exists somewhere, it just sounds right to me :)

    “It's time to start living the life you've only imagined.” - Unknown



    I see at least one new quote every day because I use the Momentum Chrome extension (recommended) and this is what's on there now. It's winter break (and Christmas, Merry Christmas!) so I finally have time to rest and quietly think to myself. In short, I've been thinking / feeling exactly what the quote says. It's time...

    Very simple quote, but read it a few times to yourself and maybe you'll feel it too. [HASHTAG]#powerful[/HASHTAG]

    edit: You can even rephrase it to turn it into an affirmation. Just replace the "you've" with "I've."
