If you want to do this little dance Jack, bring it.  But you'll go down like a one legged man in an ass kicking contest.

---Mickey Rourke's Cyrus Pace from Get Carter.

Preparing to take your exam:
"Decide what you want, decide what you are willing to exchange for it. Establish your priorities and go to work."
H. L. Hunt

For the crammer:
"There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm."
Willa Cather (1873 - 1947), The Song of the Lark, 1915

Right before the exam (replace Maker with Prof.):
"I am prepared to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter."
Sir Winston Churchill, on the eve of his 75th birthday

When you hit the trouble spot of the exam:
"Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy."
Sir Winston Churchill, Speech, 1941, Harrow School


While taking the exam:
"Broadly speaking, the short words are the best, and the old words best of all."
Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

Before you turn in your exam:
"I've always tried to go a step past wherever people expected me to end up."
Beverly Sills (1929 - )

Before the next exam:
S"uccess is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm."
Sir Winston Churchill

After you have taken an exam:
"Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything."
Mary Hemingway


*As you can tell, I love Churchill. Also, I love quotes. This was a great idea. GW Lawboy.

As you walk into the room - "Whether you think you can or think you can't, you are right." - Henry Ford

Before you look at the first question - "The task ahead of us is not any greater than the power that is behind us"

When you walk out feeling like you really blew it - "Sometimes the dragon wins"
"Ever notice that 'What the hell' is always the right decision?" - Marilyn Monroe

Another round is coming by month's end. I thought I would start out by kicking some ppl in the ass (mainly myself).

Quote
I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat these words each hour, each day, everyday, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing, and the action which follows becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again and again. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person.

Here's one for your first 1L exams:

"Somebody kill me please...Somebody kill me please. 
I'm on my knees...pretty, pretty PLEASE! 
Kill me.  I want to die!"
