making haste, slowly...
prepare for all days alike, when on the anvil bear,
& when you're the hammer, strike...
favor - kills faster than a bullet
et cetra, et cetra
"Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it."
I like to share three I live by and teach.
1- "None of us have it all together, but , TOGETHER we have it all"
2-" If you want something you never had, you MUST do something you have never done".
3- ' If you don't have a goal, others will use you to fulfil theirs"
I like Viggo's the most :)
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena....who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." ~Teddy Roosevelt, 1910, Paris
“A clever person solves a problem. A wise person avoids it.”

In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.
"I am a man of very simple interest. I am simply satisfied with the best of everything" - Osho
"If you correct your mind, the rest of your life will fall into place." Lao Tzu
And the good news re: your 'mind': your UNconscious mind is your best friend, always guides you from your inner truth, for what serves you best.
"There are lies, damn lies and statistics" - Mark Twain or the latin translation to the Die has been cast. but I like a lot of Einstein quotes also.
A good one is
"If Men Define the Situation as Real, then it is real in it's consequences."
You can substitute man for human.
Also Dr. Seuss has some AMAZING ones! But depending on the situation you should check out Winston Churchill, Woodrow Wilson, JFK, and MLK Jr.
(sorry hard to pick one favorite)
"Spectacular Achievement is always proceeded by unspectacular preparation !"
Not sure who to credit.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the World…Are the ones who do. ~ Steve Jobs
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." Marianne Williamson
Oh one more...
“So be sure when you step, Step with care and great tact. And remember that life's A Great Balancing Act."
Dr. Seuss Oh the Places You Will Go!
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again yet expecting different results.
