I have a collection of my favorite inspirational quotes that I curate and reference every few weeks. There have been a lot of smart men and women who have come before me, who have found themselves in similar or more demanding positions, and who have more eloquently expressed themselves.
It helps to inspire me to try harder, push longer, endure more, think more clearly, and just generally strive to be better. The following are a few of my favorites.
I choose to compete…not because it is easy, but because it is hard, because that competition will serve to measure and organize the best of my energies and skills, because that challenge is one that I am willing to accept, one I am unwilling to postpone, and one which I intend to overcome.
-a variation of John F Kennedy's "We choose to go to the Moon" speech
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
The significance of man is not in what he attains, but rather in what he longs to attain.
It is not the mountain we conquer, it is ourselves.
-Sir Edmund Hillary
