    It's a tie for me.

    "Lay on MacDuff and damned be him who first cries, 'Hold! Enough'! -- Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 8

    And then this one:

    "It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong

    man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

    The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is

    marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and

    comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the

    great devotions,and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best,

    knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst,

    if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be

    with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." -- Theodore Roosevelt

    "I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time." - Jack London

    "Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds." - Albert Einstein

    "The journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step." - Lao Tzu

    "Life can only be understood backwards. But it must be lived forwards." - Kierkegaard

    "Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes." - Jack Handey, 'Deep Thoughts'

    It is easy to fool yourself

    It is possible to fool the people you work for

    It is somewhat more difficult to fool the people you work with

    But you can never fool the people who work for you

    I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.
