I was a watching a documentary on graffiti art yesterday and read a quote one of the artists painted on a piece: "90% of success is just showing up". My thoughts on that were: yeah, I don't think so. Most people just show up every day and get nowhere. You actually have to do something extraordinary to get what you want.

My favorite quote that actually motivated me for years when I was getting my business/website going was "there are no traffic jams along the extra mile". That quote actually makes more sense!

What are your favorite motivational quotes (good or bad)?

It's one I use with the newbies at Ninjitsu to remind them that the art is more than just the Taijutsu (combat) side and to explore the other sides too.

Not so much motivational as guidance are:

"Never eat at a place called 'Moms'
Never play Pool with anyone called Slim, or Poker with anyone called 'Doc".

Don't criticise anyone until you have walked a mile in their shoes - then say what you like. After all you're a mile away and you've got their shoes"
