Quote Me: Share your favorite inspirational quotes
« on: December 28, 2006, 08:17:11 PM »
Whenever I stumble across something uplifting or inspiring, I record it in a "quote journal" that I've been keeping since seventh grade.  I'm looking to add a few more quotes to the mix, so I was wondering if any of you well-read, well-versed legal eagles had any wisdom to share.  If so, post it here so that your fellow LSDers can bask in the warmth of your sunshine! ;D Be sure to cite the original speaker if known.   Here goes...

In life we cannot do great things.  We can only small things with great love. (Mother Theresa)

Not taking risks is risky.

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, 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 by dirt and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows great enthusiasms, great devotions; who spends himself in worthy causes; who at the best, knows in the end the triumphs of achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. (Teddy Roosevelt)

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is today. (Chinese proverb)

It is not your business to succeed, but to do right; when you have done so, the rest lies with God. (C.S. Lewis)

Ok, your turn...

If you're going to insult someone, walk a mile in their shoes. Then you're a mile away, and you have their shoes.
