Default Inspiring Quotes and Sayings

Hi all

I was searching around for inspiring quotes and sayings to help us along this journey... here are a few please add your own! The more the merrier and most importantly may 'reach out' and touch somebody :P

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence therefore is not an act but a habit Aristotle

Life is a journey not a destination

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, its about learning to dance in the rain Oh I love this one and think it's a great one for all of those 'waiting for the right time to start this journey'. :-*

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you can not do Eleanor Roosevelt

I didn't put it up, it was IanSlim, and it's probably been around for a while, but it's great!

the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result!

A couple of my all-time favourites:-

"You can't change direction in a parked car" (I think Cohenites can relate to that one ...)

"When you're running with the herd, DON'T STUMBLE - getting up can be a real ***** !!!" (That may have nothing to do with Cohens, but I just love the imagery of it anyway :P )

Great idea Hexi - thanks for that.
One I've used for years but definitely use constantly during Cohens as it's help me beat the odd craving is "nothing can taste as good as slim is going to feel"
Two I've stolen from this forum and like to use are Yoda's "Do or Do Not - there is no try!" and "You are the author of your life"
Others I've come to like along my journeys are "Those who forget the past are destined to repeat it" (Remember how we became overweight)
"Some friends come and go but true friends leave footprints in your heart" (I count my Cohen's friends as true friends)
"Don't let what you can't do interfere with what you can do!" (Don't think you won't make it) "Believe it and it will happen!"
"A smile is a curve that can set things straight" (Smile and stay positive)
"If you have a dream there is always a way to make it come true" (Cohens is the answer)
"Love may come and go but friends are forever"
"The journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step" (This can be translated to starting Cohens and our weight loss journey)
