This is a list of my favorite quotes:
(it is still a work in progress)

“We must become the change we want to see.”
--Mahatma Gandhi

"When you want a thing bad enough to go out and fight for it, to work day and night for it, to give up your peace and your sleep and your time for it;
If only the desire of it makes your aim strong enough never to tire of it; If life seems all empty and useless without it, and all that you dream and you scheme is about it; If gladly you'll sweat for it, fret for it, plan for it, pray with all your strength for it; If you'll simply go after the thing that you want with all your capacity, Strength and sagacity; faith, hope, and confidence, stern pertinacity; If neither poverty nor cold nor famish nor gaunt Nor sickness of pain to body or brain can turn you away from the aim that you want; If dogged and grim, you besiege and beset it, you'll get it!"
--Author unknown
