    One of my favorite, if not my favorite is 'Excellence is a Standard Not a Goal'.  But, I don' know who said it.

    "Power corrupts and education is power. So study hard and be evil!"  - Friedrich Nietzsche.

    “You got a dream, you gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they wanna tell you, you can’t do it. If you want something, go get it. Period.”--Will Smith in 'Pursuit of Happyness'.

    "Many people might say that your duty is morally wrong, according to their moral standards. Still that’s your duty, remember. It’s the action that keeps your mind pure - beyond likes and dislikes and other pairs of opposites. So don’t give it up." - The Bhagavad Gita, 18.47.

      "Your right is to Karma only, but never to its fruits. Never let the worry of outcome bother and create indecision in your way of work. Keep working whether or not you get results. Your Karma is what makes you not your success." - The Bhagavad Gita

    "It's better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all."

    This is my favorite because I can apply this one single saying to many other things in life, like,
    It's better to trust and be disappointed, than not to trust and all.

    "Things that happen to you may not be your fault, but they are thoroughly your responsibility."--Scott Hamilton from his biography.

    I disliked the book tremendously but loved that particular quote because it seems today we live in a society that blames everyone else for what happens to us instead of taking responsibility ourselves.

      Why all the down arrows on the quotes?  The question was what is OUR all time favorite quote - how can that be voted down?

    I am the yummy pie! (It's my favourite quote and thought to use to give me confidence when dating or heading out for a night out on the town, just something fun to make myself feel good and think positively too!).

    "In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer." ~ Albert Camus

    As a long-term sufferer of depression this quote always provides me with so much comfort. It reminds me that a huge amount of strength can be found within us in extreme circumstances.
