Quotes to remember for 2011

I added a daily quotes to the right side of my blog, I have to admit that I love reading quotes. They make me think through what I am doing whether it be running, work or life.

Another thing that I started doing this year is reading an online one year bible. Nick (TeamCrossRuns) had posted about and I checked it out and it is working out real well for me. I am now 5% complete, I usually read before work and if I don't do it then, I do it later when I get home from work. I have looked for a better way of reading the bible and had not found a way that seemed to work for me. I am not a structure kind of person and often struggle to accept and follow routines. Ok, I admit that this also carries into my running. Although once I commit to things I do tend to stick with them, I just don't always follow a conventional path in getting there.

Back to the quotes, here are a few quotes that I found that I think capture my reasoning for running long distances.

The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible. - Arthur C. Clarke

One who fears failure limits his activities. Failure is only the opportunity to more intelligently begin again. - Henry Ford

To conquer oneself is the best and noblest victory; to be vanquished by one's own nature is the worst and most ignoble defeat. - Plato
