    I've had one that has been bouncing around in my head for a long time. Can't remember where I got it.

    "The one who falls up and gets back up is much stronger than the one who never fell."

    "Keep moving forward" - Monty Oum. (also can be attributed to Meet the Robinsons)

    Even if it's short and sweet it resonated with me. Really helped me push on and restart drawing again, improve my life and try harder in the past 2-3 years.

    “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop“

    I got diagnosed with an autoimmune disease when I was 16, and it was a struggle to get to where I am today. I just take everything one day at a time~

    I have a couple that I really like.

    • “You don’t need to know anymore, as long as you know yourself.”
    • “Life moves on, however slowly.”
    • “Keep pushing towards your ‘eventually’, because in the grand scheme of the universe, it’s closer than you think.”
    • “Take advantage of the rain to wash the dirt off. That way, you can prove everybody wrong when the sun comes back.”
    I think about these things a lot.

    "The oracle told me that I am the smartest of all the Greeks because I am the only one who knows that, all that I know, is that I know nothing." (don't remember who said this)

    A little bit of a weird one, but it still inspires me. It inspires me to keep an open mind no matter what. It inspires me to think beyond what I think is real. Since I am in a field where reality can change in a dime, this quote is particularly helpful. I also see it as inspiring to keep an open mind about others.

    I shall quote some Yoda from Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back

    "That is why you fail.”
    This is Yoda being brutally honest with Luke, who breathlessly says, “I don’t believe it,” after his Master raises an X-wing from the Dagobah swamp. It’s a definitive statement that comes from Yoda’s years and years of experience as a Jedi and a teacher, and it cuts through both to Luke and the audience.

    "Do or do not - there is no try."
    This is another line from the X-wing sequence on Dagobah, and are the last instructions the Jedi Master gives Luke before he attempts to raise his fighter from the swamp. Within the scene, it was a lightning bolt of dialogue, another great nugget of undeniable wisdom that teaches Luke to have a more serious mind. Yoda had consistently tried to teach Luke to focus on the present, and essentially, to grow up. In this moment, with these words, he makes it clear. This line has become a modern slogan — a reminder to commit oneself to something completely, win or lose.

    "Sometimes you get the bear and sometimes the bear gets you." - The Big Lebowski

    Really does illustrate the back and forth pendulum of life IMO. You're going to find that you will be on the upside as well as the downside. Much of it will depend on how you handle things whether as an optimist or a pessimist moving forward.
