Quotable inspiration

Who doesn’t love a good quote? My coach is BIG on quotes – seriously, he probably has like 100 memorized – and loves to share them every chance he gets. After hearing them for 15 years straight, it’s no wonder I love them too! There really is something inspiring about hearing someone else’s (generally) succinct wisdom or take on a situation to really put it in perspective.

I thought I’d share some of my favorites along with some new ones that have struck a chord with me lately.


(Most of the quotes ingrained in my memory from my coach are without authors – if you know who the quote is by, please let me know and I will be sure to give credit.)


Pain of discipline; pain of regret – take your pick.

Sweat plus sacrifice equals success. -Charlie Finley

Success always looks easy to those who weren’t around when it was being earned.

Winners train; losers complain.

The most rewarding things in life are often the ones that look like they cannot be done. -Arnold Palmer

The rising tide floats all ships.

99% of failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses. -George Washinton Carver

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. –Dale Carnegie 


What are you favorite quotes? I’m always looking for new inspiration!
