Re: Inspirational Quotes

"Make sure when anyone tackles you he remembers how much it hurts."
- Jim Brown

Yes, it's a football quote, but it can be abstracted and applied to most any competition pretty easily. If someone's going to beat you, don't make it easy for them.

Re: Inspirational Quotes

To every man upon this earth
death comes soon or late
and how may a man die better
than facing fearful odds
for the ashes of our fathers
to the temples of our gods

Re: Inspirational Quotes

This is on our SWAT Challenge coin here:

Whom shall I send...And who will go for us
Send Me...
I will go
Isiah 6:8

"This is my body. And I can do whatever I want to it. I can push it. Study it. Tweak it. Listen to it. Everybody wants to know what I'm on. What am I on? I'm on my bike busting my *** six hours a day.
What are you on?" Lance Armstrong

Re: Inspirational Quotes

These two really made me think of Crossfit.

We improve ourselves by victories over ourself. There must be contests, and you must win.—Edward Gibbon

It's the same each time with progress. First they ignore you, then they say you're mad, then dangerous, then there's a pause and then you can't find anyone who disagrees with you.—Tony Benn

Re: Inspirational Quotes

Quotes of Don Juan Matus, On Being a Warrior

A warrior acknowledges his pain but he doesn't indulge in it.

The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is
that a warrior takes everything as a challenge, while an ordinary
man takes everything as a blessing or as a curse.

A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's
control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go.
That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind.
No one can push him, no one can make him do things against himself
or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive and
he survives in the best of all possible fashions.

Acts have power. Especially when the warrior acting knows that
those acts are his last battle. There is a strange consuming
happiness in acting with the full knowledge that whatever he is
doing may very well be his last act on earth.

A warrior must be willing and ready to make his last
stand here and now.

A warrior cannot complain or regret anything. His life is an endless
challenge, and challenges cannot possibly be good or bad.
Challenges are simple challenges.

Self-importance is man's greatest enemy. What weakens him is
feeling offended by the deeds and misdeeds of his fellow men.
Self-importance requires that one spend most of one's life offended
by something or someone.

The hardest thing in the world is to assume the mood of a
warrior. It is of no use to be sad and complain and feel justified
in doing so, believing that someone is always doing something to us.
Nobody is doing anything to anybody, much less to a warrior.

A warrior takes his lot, whatever it amy be, and accepts it in
ultimate humbleness. He accepts in humbleness what he is, not as
grounds for regret but as a living challenge.

The worst that could happen to us is that we have to die, and
since that is already our unalterable fate, we are free; those who
have lost everything no longer have anything to fear.

A warrior must learn to make every act count, since he is going
to be here in this world for only a short while, in fact, too short
for witnessing all the marvels of it.

When one has nothing to lose, one becomes courageous.
We are timid only when there is something we can still cling to.
