    Favorite Inspirational Quotes

    I was just thinking about inspirational quotes and was wondering what some of your favorite inspirational quotes are. I personally and a Big John Wooden and Jimmy Valvano fan so here are a few of my favorites!

    "Don't give up, don't ever give up!" - Jimmy V

    "Cancer can take away all of my physical abilities, but it cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart and it cannot touch my soul, and those three things are gonna carry on forever." - Jimmy V

    "Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are." - John Wooden

    Believe in Yourself

    Because the rest of us think you're an idiot.




    Mistakes

    It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.


    Idiocy

    Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.



    Change

    Politicians are like diapers. They need to be changed often and for the same
    reason.

    Re: Favorite Inspirational Quotes

    "It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns. Also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you?"


    "What a horrible night to have a curse."
    -Simon Belmont

    "Please bury me with all my stuff, because you know it's mine..."
    -Master Shake

    "Passersby were amazed by the unusually large amounts of blood."
    -Lorem Ipsum

    "Fairy tales don't tell children that dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children that dragons can be killed." -G.K. Chesterton


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
