Re: Inspirational Quotes

Here's a quote that I always liked from one of our Founding Fathers:

"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
- Samuel Adams

Re: Inspirational Quotes

"Split your lungs with blood and thunder
when you see the white whale
break your backs and crack your oars, men
if you wish to prevail
this ivory peg is what propels me
harpoons thrust in the sky
aim directly for his crooked brow
and look him straight in the eye"

Mastodon, Blood and Thunder

Awesome for a long hard row

Re: Inspirational Quotes

One that fits well with the community aspect of crossfit:

"Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success."
-Henry Ford (1863-1947), inventor and industrialist

Re: Inspirational Quotes

I heard Lou Holtz say this, don't remember where he got it from.
"What I should do I ought to do. What I ought to do by the grace of God I'm gonna do."

Genghis Kahn said something similar. I'll post it if I can ever find it.
