    I'll start...
    *******************************************************
    “If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is made up of.”
    -Bruce Lee

    Time is way too valuable to waste being lazy.

    Don't let pride get in the way of happiness.

    There's no point
    having good ideals... if you forget them when you need them most. Keep
    practicing them, and never let negative feelings lead you astray.

    There no point feeling sad...mad... bad... whatever... ever.

    In order to have complete control of yourself, you must purge yourself... every... single... day.

    "The greatest discovery of any generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude."
    -William James

    "Willpower"

    "To
    fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence;
    supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without
    fighting."
    -Sun Tzu

    "Self-discipline"

    "A man told his
    grandson: 'A terrible fight is going on inside me -- a fight between
    two wolves. One is evil, and represents hate, anger, arrogance,
    intolerance, and superiority. The other is good, and represents joy,
    peace, love, tolerance, understanding, humility, kindness, empathy,
    generosity, and compassion. This same fight is going on inside you,
    inside every other person too.'
    The grandson then asked: 'Which wolf will win?' The old man replied simply: 'The one you feed.' "

    "People forget how fast you did a job -- but they remember how well you did it."
    -Howard W. Newton

    "The best way to succeed in life is to act on the advice we give to others."

    Simply do what your ideal self would do.

    "It is not death that a man should fear,
    but he should fear never beginning to live."
    -Marcus Aurelius

    "A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for."

    "It is amazing how much you can accomplish when it doesn't matter who gets the credit."
    -(does it matter?)

    "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

    How can I be happy when there is so much sadness in the world?
    Then again... how can I be sad when I would only be increasing that sadness which I so despise?


    Ask not what you can do for your country,
    ask what you can do... for your planet

    "Hatred is toxic waste in the river of life.” -
    -Micron

    "Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved."
    -Barbara Johnson

    "If fifty million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing."
    -Anatole France

    "Those who stare at the past have their backs turned to the future."

    "Self-discipline"

    "As iron sharpens iron,
    So one man sharpens another."
    -Proverbs 27:17

    "Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely."
    -"Buddha"

    "To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man."
    -Shakespeare

    Sometimes, ignorance is bliss

    "There's always something to suggest that you'll never be who you wanted to be. Your choice is to take it or keep on moving."
    -Phylicia Rashad

    "Willpower"

    "Do not seek to become powerful,
    seek only to release fear from the body-mind.
    Do not chase after joy,
    only breath out your pain, your grief, your loss.
    Do not ask for mastery,
    ask only to shed that which is unnatural and disharmonious.
    Darkness and day follow each other.
    Heavy is the root of light.
    Stillness is the mother of movement.
    Emptiness is the source of ten thousand things.
    Release, breathe, shed, stand still, un-do.
    Let your tears fall into the earth beneath your feet.
    Let your sorrow sink and become your root.
    What you thought was weakness will become your strength.
    Where fear has dissolved, laughter blooms,
    After looking inward,
    the Spirit rises."
    -Cheng Man Ching

    “If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”
    -Bruce Lee
