If You Think You're Beaten

If you think you're beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win, but think you can't,
It's almost for sure, you won't.

If you think you're losing, you've lost.
For out in the world we find -
Success begins with a person's will,
It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you're outclassed, you are,
You've got to think high to rise.
You have to stay with it,
In order to win the prize.

Life's battles don't always go,
To the one with the better plan.
For more often than not, you will win,
If only you think you can.

""Therefore, Ananda, be a lamp unto yourself, be a refuge to yourself. Take yourself to no external refuge. Hold fast to the Truth as a lamp; hold fast to the Truth as a refuge. Look not for a refuge in anyone beside yourself. And those, Ananda, who either now or after I am dead shall be a lamp unto themselves, who take themselves to no external refuge, but holding fast to the Truth as their lamp, and holding fast to the Truth as their refuge, shall not look for refuge to anyone beside themselves, it is they who shall reach the highest goal."
Buddha Gotama, Mahaparinibbana Sutta

“Excellence can be obtained if you:
...care more than others think is wise;
...risk more than others think is safe;
...dream more than others think is practical;
...expect more than others think is possible.”

Don't know who said it, but my AP Euro History teacher in HS had it framed behind his desk.

If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education, go to the library.

You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.

"Don't give up, don't ever give up." - Jim Valvano. ESPN hoses up a lot of things but I love that they hammer away at the V Foundation stuff. I always cry when I hear that speech.

Also, ""Gentlemen, we'll be successful this year if you can focus on three things, and three things only. Your family, your religion and the Green Bay Packers,"

:thumb: for the Jimmy V quotes. First time I saw that speech was 7th grade bball. Our coach (who was a hell of a coach) took us into a classroom instead of practice one day before a big game (we were all "wtf") and showed us the speech. Watch it every year now.

“The day the child realizes that all adults are imperfect, he becomes an adolescent; the day he forgives them, he becomes an adult; the day he forgives himself, he becomes wise”


"Ain't nothin wrong, ain't nothing right and still I sit and lie awake all night."

"If I had a shotgun, know what I'd do, I'd point that **** straight at the sky and shoot heaven on down to you."

"I am not a doctrinaire of any kind. I'm still searching. Sometimes I call myself an anarchist, but I know that anarchism is not a final answer. Sometimes I lean toward Marx, but more often I lean toward Ghandi-Tolstoi-Thoreau."

‎"Captain, my religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me. That is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave" -- Thomas J. Jackson

Vince Lombardi Quotes

"They may not love you at the time, but they will later." (I use this everyday at work)

I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious.
