There is no standing still in life, you are either moving forward or moving backwards because no one around you is going to stop and wait for you. Work hard everyday to better yourself no matter what the task is.

The one I keep telling myself:
Jerry Miculek is my age.
That is one for me to remember.

On my first day at work I was told by a Electrical Engineering Project Lead:
"Walk fast, look worried and carry a clipboard."
He's now a project manager. Maybe there's something to it.....

one I had on the wall of my classroom for many years....
fair is a word used by small children,
life is not, nor ever will be fair
FAIR is a place they give ribbons to pigs.
Win when you can, lose if you must, but always, always cheat!
On the battlefields of history lie the blackened bones of those who while on the verge of victory stopped to rest. And while resting there, died.

Experience comes from bad judgment.
Every cloud has a silver lining, but hundreds of people are killed each year by lightening trying to find it.

One of my favorites:
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, 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, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who 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 neither know victory nor defeat.
-Teddy Roosevelt 23 April 1910

A favorite of mine is:
Things are never so bad they can't get worse.
Now that is a positive spin on a negative situation.
