The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do. Walter Bagehot
Do not spend your time upset over things you have little control over when you can enjoy life. Just make sure by the time you leave it, it is a better place because you were in it.
Exercise is for people who can’t handle drugs and alcohol. - Lily Tomlin
“Pain is weakness leaving the body”
“Somewhere in the world someone is training when you are not. When you race him, he will win.” Tom Fleming
"you can quit and they won’t care…but you will always know- john colins
success is getting what you want… happiness is wanting what you have.
We find in life exactly what we put into it. LIVE. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Success is living up to your potential. That’s all. Wake up with a smile and go after life! Live it, enjoy it, taste it, smell it, feel it.
The physical pain you feel can’t compare to the emotional pain you feel, when you quit
You never work out and regret it. You never go for a run and when you are done say “I wish I would have just stayed home”. You never climb a mountain, get to the top and say “should have just been content to stay where I was?”
The race is long and in the end, it’s only with yourself.
If you always get what you want, maybe you’re not expecting enough.
There is nothing noble in being superior to some other man. The true
nobility is in being superior to your previous self.
“Dream barriers look very high until someone climbs them. They are not barriers anymore.”- Lasse Viren
“Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” T.S. Eliot
“There are many paths to the top of the mountain,
…but only one view”
"It is one of the strange ironies of this strange life that those who work the hardest, who subject themselves to the strictest discipline, who give up certain pleasurable things in order to achieve a goal, are the happiest men. When you see 20 or 30 men line up for a distance race in some meet, don’t pity them, don’t feel sorry for them. Better envy them instead.Brutus Hamilton
“The vision of a champion is bent over, drenched in sweat, at the point of exhaustion, when nobody else is looking.”
“I am building a fire, and everyday I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.”- Both by Mia Hamm
To live only for some future goal is shallow. It’s the sides of the mountains which sustain life, not the top. Here is where things grow. When you try to climb a mountain to prove how big you are, you never make it." -Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance (great book)
“Fight on and fly on to the last drop of blood and the last drop of fuel, to the last beat of the heart.”-Baron Manfred Von Richthofen
This is your life. Good to the last drop. It does not get any better than this. You must understand that you are going to die someday. Until you know this, you are useless. - graffiti in bathroom stall @ Concordia U.
