    If you're going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don't even start.

    This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery--isolation.

    Isolation is the gift.

    All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you'll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine.

    If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that.

    You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It's the only good fight there is.

    My quote for today will undoubtedly not be the one for tomorrow, but one that always kicks me back into action when I look at others and want to be achieving what they are:

    That kicks me into action pretty quick.

    Sweet!

    It seems to me that in life, whatever the circumstance, it's the person/family/team that embraces this motto that wins out.

    I actually have a play on our family name that expresses this: "What does our family mean? 'We can, Dad.'"

    Accompanied by eye rolls but also teaching a lesson...

    A couple of my favorites

    "A good plan, violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan next week." —General George Patton (I think I stole this one from @Iwokeup )
    "Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm." —Winston Churchill
    "It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men." —Frederick Douglass
    "I like a man who grins when he fights." —Winston Churchill
    "A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." -Robert Heinlein


    A few other good ones

    "If you wait until all the lights are green before you leave home, you'll never get started"
    "No excuses." - I think this one was @Vigilante in an old thread
    "Go faster" - A controversial dolphin
    "If you're not being told 'no' constantly, you're not pushing hard enough." -Shafqat Islam


    And a couple of more mindset type ones

    "One day you will wake up and wish you had done all the things you were afraid of. Fight fear, chase dreams."
    "You speak to unsuccessful people, you hear unsuccessful stories." - A friend of a friend of @csalvato
    "You will fail, you will suck, and it will take a while for that shit to stop happening on a regular basis. TRUST THAT THIS IS TRUE and life will be easier for you. (the upside is, at some point you stop sucking, and start really shining! )" - A controversial dolphin
    "The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me." - Ayn Rand

    The subject of your Meetup presentation. I'm really looking forward to hearing what you have to say on this subject.

    “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 them 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, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows 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 fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
