The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again yet expecting different results.
"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
"Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have the same 24 hours in a day"
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.”
~ Dr. Seuss
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the World…Are the ones who do. ~ Steve Jobs
"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.
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.
“Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?”
― Sun Tzu, The Art of War
The Wise have something to say, fools just have to say something!
"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!
"Spectacular Achievement is always proceeded by unspectacular preparation !"
Not sure who to credit.

Hi Marzena ~
Your inquiry is similar to one asked about a year ago: http://www.mosaichub.com/open_forum/question/what-are-your-two-or-three-favorite-sayings#5870
My number one favorite still stands:
"The rest of creation is waiting, breathless, for you to take your place." ~ David Whyte
Jean Houston said something almost identical: "The universe is holding its breath, waiting for you to take your place."
They're both brilliant wayshowers and authors, so it's possible both quotes evolved independently via the web of life. In this age of synchronicity, many of us are lighting up the same amazing ideas, words, quotes and stories simultaneously.
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Phil 4:13
The world steps aside for the man (or woman) who knows where he is going!!
“A clever person solves a problem. A wise person avoids it.”
― Albert Einstein
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 :)
