I have quite a few quotes that I tend to live by and relate too often.

"You have to believe that good enough just isn't good enough." -Derek Jeter (on the Ford commercials xD)

That's one I always think of to try and push myself to do better. Why settle for 95% when you can get 100%? And Derek Jeter is the perfect role model for that.

"You miss 100% of the shots you don't take." -My coach

I always think of this when I'm afraid to take a "shot," whether it be a literal shot in basketball, or some new thing I might be afraid to try. You may be afraid of failing, but if you don't try, you automatically fail anyway.

"Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." -My seventh grade English teacher

This is one I think of when I try to keep myself humble. I know it's important to keep your head screwed on right, and I always think of this when I do things that I'm not too proud of.

"Without evil, there can be no good." -one of the villains from the TV show Charmed

As cynical as this may be, I find it to be very true. Not just good and evil, but happiness and sadness. If we weren't sad sometimes, we'd never appreciate true happiness.

"There it goes! See ya!" -Michael Kay, broadcaster for the New York Yankees

Michael Kay's signature home run call for the New York Yankees. :bleh:

Actually, I heard this somewhere else, so your English Teacher must have got it from somewhere else.

Anyway,

"I feel I'm very much a part of my times, of my culture, as much a part of it as rockets and television."
- Andy Warhol

Being a great artist, this went to what some talent can do.

"Why do we fall, Bruce? So that we can learn to pick ourselves back up again." - Thomas Wayne, Batman Begins

"Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn." - Alfred Pennyworth, The Dark Knight

"All that we have to decide is what to do with the time given to us." - Gandalf the Gray, The Fellowhip of the Ring

"Life is about making choices." - Myself

*I'll update if I think of more.

These two quotes reminded me of one from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Dumbledore speaking to Harry.

"It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."
