"Self-disciplined begins with the mastery of your thoughts. If you don`t control what you think, you can`t control what you do. Simply, self-discipline enables you to think first and act afterward"
~ Napoleon Hill
Some of my all-time favorites:

If you always sail close to the shore, you`ll never discover new territories - unknown
Don`t treat every problem like a nail just because all you have is a hammer - unknown

It doesn`t matter so much what you do. What matters is how you do it. - unknown (I think I might have actually made that one up myself... but it doesn`t matter. It always reminds me of two things I consider to be most important: integrity and thriving on excellence)
I came up with a list of quotes when I created my current site with the intention of including them on various pages - here are a few that I found inspiring.
A bird doesn`t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
Don`t be afraid your life will end; be afraid that it will never begin.
Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow talent to the dark place where it leads.
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
