I was just reading through some quotes to help motivate myself during these times of hardship in college, and I was wondering what a few of your favorite motivational/inspiring quotes are?

Here are a few of my favorites:

? A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.- David Brinkley
? Failure is success if we learn from it.- Malcolm S. Forbes
? Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.- George S. Patton
? Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure.- George E. Woodberry
? Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.?Einstein

*edit* just got another one:

? Success in almost any field depends more on energy and drive than it does on intelligence. This explains why we have so many stupid leaders.- Sloan Wilson

*2nd edit* probably the most profound quote I read all day:

? When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us. - Helen Keller

What did you fix?

the proper quote is "beer before hard, in the yard. Hard before beer, in the clear."

I don't know the author or the original wording (someone clue me in?) but it goes like this:
"First do what is necessary. Then What is possible. And soon you may find yourself doing the impossible"

And I'd also like for everyone to take this topic a little more seriously- you might find something inspiring!
