Most of my favorites have already been posted. smile.gif Here are some others, though.

"Sorrow comes in great waves. . .but it rolls over us, and though it may almost smother us, it leaves us. And we know that if it is strong, we are stronger, inasmuch as it passes and we remain."
- Henry James

"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do."

"Any change, any loss, does not make us victims. Others can shake you, surprise you, disappoint you, but they can't prevent you from acting, from taking the situation you're presented with and moving on. No matter where you are in life, no matter what your situation, you can always do something. You have a choice, and the choice can be power."
-Blaine Lee

There's only now
There's only here
Give in to love
Or live in fear
No other road
No other way
No day but today
-Rent, written by Jonathan Larson

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams -Eleanor Roosevelt

Everybody sails alone
But we can travel side by side
Even if you fail
You know that no one really minds
-Heal Over by KT Tunstall

This is a great thread... I'll come back because I know I have more but this is all I can think of at the moment.
