These words have helped lighten my burdens when I have felt like quitting. Hope it helps you.

“It's not the critic that counts. It's 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 with dust, and sweat, and blood. Who strives valiantly; Who errors and comes short again and again; Because there is no effort without error and shortcoming. But who does actually dare to do the deeds. Who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; Who spends himself in a worthy cause; Who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly. So that his place will never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
- Theodore Roosevelt -

This quote basically changed my life

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of
attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important
than facts. It is more important than the past, than
education, than money, than circumstances, than
failures, than success, than what other people think
or say or do. It is more important than appearance,
gift, or skill. It will make or break a company...
a church... a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day
regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past... The only thing we
can do is play on the string we have, and that is
our attitude.
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me
and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you...
we are in charge of our attitudes."
--Charles Swindoll
"A mind once stretched by a new idea never regains its original dimension."
--Oliver Wendell Holmes

Beautiful sayings all..
When I feel like nothing is happening with my Magic and the other things I endeavour to accomplish even though I feel I have tried hard, I remember these words..

"It doesn't matter if you go slow, so long as you never stop." -Confucius-

and....

"Worry not about Perfection, that is solely God's work, worry only that you did not try to do your best, for life asks of us not that we be the biggest or the best, only that we try...." -Unknown-

Thanks, guys. Anyone else wanna share their sayings? Smile

Really great lines. I wish I had some of my own to add.

Just, "life is what you make of it" and, "Your legacy in life is the people you have touched and how they remember you; how do you wish to be remembered?".

The last I heard that parable I was in the military, in '94. I guess that was a prior life.

That parable and 'A coward dies a thousand deaths, the valiant die but once'

Very inspiring, there are those who do, and those who say I could have.

Thanks,
Terry

On a re-read it brings a tear to my patriotic eye.

Thanks again.

Pakar Ilusi said: "The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena."

Terry, as a veteran myself, I appreciate your quote: " 'A coward dies a thousand deaths, the valiant die but once' "

I've personally come to realize that the world offers me a lifetime of opportunity to quit or complain. I, in turn, offer myself a daily opportunity not to do so.
The results have been good!

You fellas have already made an unusual impact with your willingness to inspire within this discussion thread. That can certainly go a LONG way! Smile

Thanks for nudging us along.

I like the attitude quote.

As John Maxwell says, "Your attitude determines your altitude."

Here's my 10 cents worth:

"A calm sea, never made a skilled sailor"

"If one day you stand up and face the music, one day you might lead the band."

"If better is always possible, good will never be enough."

"Knowing your path, and walking it are to different things."

Magically

Beautiful Aus... and I've never heard any of those before... Especially like...

"If one day you stand up and face the music, one day you just might lead the band."

:thumbsup: Smile

I'll add this one.

"You always miss 100% of all the shots you did not even try to make."

Thanks all... Smile

I'll add to the Group!

"The greatest principle of growth lies in Human Choice"

"There is no shortcut to any place worth going"
"We tend to think that magic is all about us, what we do, and how we execute the tricks, when in actuality, it's really about what the spectator witnesses, imagines, and remembers in their minds."

These may not fit but I am a big James Dean fan

"dream as though you will live forever, and live as though you will die tommorow."

"only the gentle are truly strong"

I don't think the latter is Jimmy's but it was his favorite qoute.

best to all...... Smile
THOUGHTfully,

This one I really like...

"This is NOT a dress rehearsal, THIS is your LIFE! So LIVE it to the FULLEST! You pass this way only ONCE!"

:beatingheart:

Remember...

"Tomorrow is not a promise and yesterday is no longer here. Today is a gift from God. That's why we call it the PRESENT! So make the most of it..."
