I realized my original post wasn't too positive so let me change it and repost something along the same lines:

"Do everything and regret nothing. It's all a learning experience"

One of my personal favorites from another forum:  "the pessimist says it can't get any worse, the optimist says it can!"

 

Some classic quotes from the world of moto:

 

When in doubt, throttle out

 

Pinners are winners

 

and a personal favorite of some overboard moto parents:  "If you don't win, don't bother coming back to the truck!" :lol:

A nice idea in theory. but not in reality. Perfection is impossible.

How about this, often attributed to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers from WWII:

 

“The difficult we do immediately. The impossible takes a little longer."

If there was a Buddah quote posted, it was probably deleted due to the "no religion" rule. That's my guess.

Treat others like you want to be treated

 

 

I think this is probably the greatest single piece of advice humanity has to offer. If we ALL lived by this one simple rule, the problems in the world would cease to exist.

Some say the glass is half full.   Some say the glass is half empty.  I've been told that my view is that there is no glass.

That was mine and it was the Dali Lama by the way; I found it during my philosophy class. I didn't post it from a religious point of view, i just thought it made sense. As I stated, it wasn't that positive so I changed my post with the original as a basis for my new post.

Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.

Set your sights high, the higher the better. Expect the most wonderful things to happen, not in the future but right now. Realize that nothing is too good. Allow absolutely nothing to hamper you or hold you up in any way.
Eileen Caddy


When you fail you learn from the mistakes you made and it motivates you to work even harder.

It's okay to fail. It means you tried to do something.  The only people who never fail were those who don't do anything at all.

Thomas Edison, besides being a genius, was also a pretty wise guy (literally).

 

On trying over and over again, without success, to find the right material to use as the filament in his light bulb: "I haven't failed. I've just discovered 10,000 ways that won't work!"

 

"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time."

 

"Many of life's failures are experienced by people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."
