“If you’re not first , you’re last”

Whether you think you can or think you cannot, you're right - not sure who said it but one of my favorites

This one I made up:

"If you tell the truth all the time, you'll never have to try and remember what you said."

From the Dalai Lama

"When you think everything is someone else's fault, you suffer a lot. When you realize that everything springs only from yourself, you will learn both peace and joy."

Though I cannot remember the exact source of this quote, I know it went a little something like this : "to think man is alone in the universe is to think that of a whole field of seed, only one will grow"

@George Lods I believe that is a Randy Pausch Quote.  I love that book The Last Lecture.  Probably one of the best guides to living a good life.   

"If something is bothering you, and you can do something about it then do not worry about it.  If something is bothering you and you can not do anything about it then do not worry about it."  - Dali Lama

I love this quote.  It is a great reminder to concentrate on the things I have control of influence over, and to let the rest fall where it may.  Once I have done everything in my power, I must have the ability to let go.  Very similar to the serenity prayer.  

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
