“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 and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, 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 he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
"DO NOT RESIST CHANCES.
Take them like vitamins.
Let go of the brakes.
See what happens if you go five more miles.
Footbridges be damned, find your own way across.
Don’t worry about the bumps and bruises.
Your body can take them.
Don’t steer around the bits that scare you, go over them, go through them.
Do something the guys in the (game) would be terrified of.
You feel your chin rise up from your chest, and you’ll be able to see
what’s around you. What’s ahead of you.
And there will be one less thing you cannot do.
JUST DO IT. "
What man actually needs is not a tensionless state but rather the
striving and struggling for some goal worthy of him. What he needs is
not the discharge of tension at any cost, but the call of a potential
meaning waiting to be fulfilled by him. "
"There is no past that we can bring back by longing for it. The only real failure is the failure to try. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing. Nothing happens unless first we dream. We get up in the morning. We do our best. Nothing else matters. This is a new and different world. The challenge is to cope with it. Not just cope but thrive. All we know about the future is that it will be different. Most things don’t work out as expected, but what happens instead often turns out to be the good stuff. Everything will be all right in the end. If it's not all right then it's not the end."

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
