Got a couple from a shirt I had during HS wrestling.

"Failure is not an option" - Gene Kranz

"The surest way to fail is not to determine to succeed" - Richard Sheriden

And then there was our teams motto, which I think applies well to CrossFit.

Mentally
Phyisically
And Technically
SUPERIOR

Re: Motivational quotes... enjoy.

A favorite of mine is:

It isn't evil that is ruining the earth, but mediocrity. The crime is not that Nero played while Rome burned, but that he played badly. - Ned Rorem

Another favorite of mine that I find motivational under the right circumstances:

If You Love Something,
Set it free,
If It Comes Back, It is Yours
If It Doesn't, Hunt it Down and Kill It



(Might explain why I'm single )
