To win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the highest skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the highest skill.

-Sun Tzu

If ambition doesn't hurt you, you haven't got it.

"To be nobody-but-yourself, in a world which is doing its best, night and day to make you everybody else... means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight... and never stop fighting" – E.E. Cummings

"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours." - Ayn Rand


Pretty long ones but the most optimistic quotes i always remember.
Though my favourite short quote is "Don't go too far, stay who you are." - Elliott Smith.
Pretty simple.

You reading The Art of War there Sam? I would actually love to read that one day:)

you never told me about that one.

I used to write them alll over my wall but now that wallpaper's gone and i can't write anything on these blank walls incase they need to be painted as it'll show through =(

I forgot to mention another one of my all time favourite quotes by Oscar Wilde (legend)

"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars."

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore,
is not an act but a habit.

Aristotle

Constant dripping hollows out a stone.

Lucretius

A wise man learns by the mistakes of others,
a fool by his own.

The zebra wakes every morning and knows he must out run the fastest lion. The lion wakes every morning and knows he must out run the slowest zebra. Anyway you look at it... whether you're a zebra or a lion, when you get up in the morning, you better be ready to run.

Wow. I really like that one SAM. I guess there are a lot of things to run for too, and i guess its to do with preparation and that, you can look at it a lot of ways really. Its just a shame that some people really do have to run, in that their lives involves people chasing them around and bullying them etc etc.

Maybe running is not always the way, perhaps if you slow down to a walk you'll take more in, and learn more?
