    if there is a thread like this already let me know but i didnt see one. i like these inspirational and funny quotes from some of the worlds biggest and strongest. here are a few of my favorite:

    “Passion trumps everything.” Dave Tate

    "Strong people are harder to kill than weak people and more useful in general." Mark Rippetoe

    "The difference btw impossible and the possible lies in a man’s determination.” Tommy Lasorda

    The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told that you’re a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.” Henry Rollins



    add more please lol

    excellent forgot about that one.

    i dont quite get that one lol.

    here is one i am stealing straight out of Starting Strength:

    "If you are going to wear gloves, make sure you get a matching purse" -Mark Rippetoe

    and from 5/3/1:

    Make time for it. Just get it done. Nobody ever got strong or got in shape by thinking about it. They did it. -Jim Wendler

    and from The Vault:

    If it were easy, everyone would be doing it. -Dave Tate

    "Kicking ass and training consistently – and with some balance – will do wonders for both your body and your mind. Get rid of all the meaningless crap in your life and your training. Get rid of the things that bleed your energy in the weight room and in life." - Jim Wendler
