There are many things in this world that inspire me, but sometimes all it takes is for me to read one of the quotes below and I am instantly reminded to keep beating my best. This list continues to evolve and as I find more inspiration, I'll add to it.

"That is what greatness means: to keep never let anyone stop you from what you love doing...even when the most impossible odds stand in your way. I believe there is greatness in all of us. And especially in the smallest of us. Every single story I write is about that. Every story . . . is about fighting the fight for what you love (whether it's your wife, your universe, your family, yourself, or your team). And the best fights are the ones where you're fighting for who you are. The odds never matter. What matters is who we are underneath. What matters is that we're true to what we love. And what matters is never ever ever changing to be anything but who you are."

"Brevity is the soul of lingerie."
Dorothy Parker

"I'd rather attempt to do something great and fail than to attempt to do nothing and succeed."
Robert H. Schuller

"If you listen to your fears, you will die never knowing what a great person you might have been."
Robert H. Schuller
