Post a quote or some words that you feel people should hear at least once in their lifetime. Who knows what effect you may have on someone. It can be as concrete or as abstract as you want. And cliches are welcome.

Something as simple as "Stop victimizing yourselves all the time," could suffice. :D

Real cliche, but works for me-

Carpe diem - Seize the day!

~ Future doesn't come to you, you need to go grab it.

Carpe diem is an antisocial, anticommunist, hippy quote; it doesn't make the world any better, and epicurism is one of the most egoistic, egocentric idealogies around.

~ Real strength is doing it right when nobody's watching.

~ All people are egoists, but some egoists care.

~ 1 + 1 = 3

Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust; and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again, but life goes on.

"Do or do not . . . there is no try"

~Yoda


Lol It's not inspirational unless Yoda says it.

Great quotes by the way everyone. Lets keep it going!

I just thought of one. :) Today is my lucky day.

"There is a big difference in knowledge and wisdom. You 'know' how to ride a bike, but the wisdom is actually riding one."

Not sure if that makes sense, but it sounded a lot better in my head. lol

I should have thought the riding was merely a practical demonstration of knowledge. The wisdom would be in complteing the ride safely and comfortably?
