Thought this forum could use a thread for sharing Quotes that members find meaningful, and worth sharing, In Your Honest Opinion. These could include things that strike you as motivating, profound, hilarious, you-name-it. Or maybe not. But here's a start:

Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.


Ralph Waldo Emerson

Here's one I keep posted in front of me at work to keep "life" in perspective.

The work will wait while you show the child a rainbow,
but the rainbow won't wait while you do the work.

There are two motivations in sports... which is yours?

It was from a New Balance commercial a while back. the two motivations are supposedly Love and Money.

My two favorite quotes attributed to someone are both from Steve Prefontaine:

"to give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift"

"a lot of people run a race to see who is fastest. i run to see who has the most guts."

I guess I'm a sucker for sports advertising. I also had an adidas shirt with David Beckham on the front that I wore right through...

impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. impossible is not a fact. it's an opinion. impossible is not a declaration. it's a dare. impossible is potential. impossible is temporary.
Impossible Is Nothing

There are so many wonderful quotes in this world but a personal saying I try to live by is:

"If it involves getting lost in the wilderness, I probably like it."


There is truly something special about walking off that beaten path in the middle of nowhere and exploring an area that few if any people have ever been. With use of a GPS unit today instead of a compass that I always use to rely on in the past, it just makes getting lost a bit more difficult.

"The mountains are calling and I must go." -John Muir

I actually have a t-shirt that says this. I feel this way a lot of the time.

I like two from the replacements:

Quicksand: You're playing and you think everything is going fine. Then one thing goes wrong. And then another. And another. You try to fight back, but the harder you fight, the deeper you sink. Until you can't move... you can't breathe... because you're in over your head. Like quicksand.
and:
Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory... lasts forever.

Not a single quote, but one of my favorites.

The motto of Scouting is Be Prepared.

Someone once asked Baden-Powell, "Be prepared for what?"

To which, he responded:

"Why, for any old thing."
