I know there was a topic on the old board about this, but I couldnt find one on here and i loved that thread soo post your favorite quotes here! They dont have to do with cheerleading or anything but i think all of mine can relate haha :)

some of mine are..

"Hard work triumphs over natural talent when natural talent refuses to work hard."
"The day you take responsibility for yourself, the day you stop making any excuses, that's the day you start to the top."
"We are what we repeatedly do, Excellence therefore is not an act, but a habit."
"Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical, and expecting more than others think is possible." <3favorite.
 
"All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you aren't good enough, strong enough, or talented enough; They will say you are the wrong height, or the wrong weight, or the wrong type to play this or achieve this. THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no, until all the no's become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly. AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES." - Nike.

LOVEEE that one
 
no really a quote but its from Make it or break it and i liked it :)

"when you look in the mirror, what do you see? do you see a pretty 16 year old girl with lots of options and distracions? or do you see a champion? and when you ask yourself what do you want, do you think i want a boyfriend, some new clothes, a day off! or do you think i want to win? because those are the only to questions! who am i? im a champion and what do i want? i want to win! so who are you?"

may not be word for word, was off the top of my head :)

Pretty much all of Lil Waynes No Quitter, Go Getter lyrics but these are my favoite parts,

"I'm goin for the gold, My heart is in control, My mind is on succeed and I am in the lead"
"If I don't do it now, I'm a try it again and when I do accomplish it, I'm a try it again"
"And I'm no quitter cause I'm a go I'm a go I'm a go getta"

& some of my other favortie quotes are,

-Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing.
-Worry gives a small thing a big shadow.
-Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive -- the risk to be alive and express what we really are.
