my old Scottish grandma used to say,
"If you sue for peace at any price, the price keeps going up"

When offered a drink of water (rather than tea, beer or wine)
She always said, "Water is for going under bridges" not inspirational, but cute.

Or "when my dad said JUMP! We were to ask "how high?" on the way up"

It's from a speach Ronald Reagan gave but Man I love it! I was in East Berlin before the wall came down....

Mr. Gorbachev, Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall


And of course:

Courage is being scared to death... and saddling up anyway.

"Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"

Here are a few poems, rather than quotes that I have:

Don't Quit
by: Unknown Author

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Theodore Roosevelt
It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled
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;
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 timid souls
who know neither victory or defeat.

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

An oldie I guess but one I always like to remember.

"Fortes fortuna adiuvat" or "Fortune favours the brave".

It is one of my quests in life, to be brave no matter what.

Thanks for sharing everyone! I hope you are all enjoying reading them as much as I am. :)

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

"I know they say at first love is the sweetest, but that first cut is the deepest. I was trying to keep us together, you were busy keeping secrets. Secrets you were tellin everybody me.. don't be fooled by the money I'm still just young & unlucky. I'm surprised you couldn't tell."
Drake.
I don't know how inspirational that is, but it keeps me going.
