    Great collection of quotes there I would like to add two quotes that have always motivated me.

    1) Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, Wow! What a Ride!
    ~~ Hunter S. Thompson ~~

    2) May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.
    ~~ Edward Abbey ~~

    Merry Christmas and a happy new year. Enjoy another 365 days around the sun
