Inspirational quotes

I was wondering what has inspired you all? It could be something someone famous has said or something someone you know has said, either way if it has inspired you it'd be interesting to find what..........here are a few quotes that have inspired me....

* you must be the change you want to see in the world* -

* you and I can change the world together if we try, for you and I will change the world if we work together and we try*

* Be realistic, demand the impossible*

* I would go out and change the world, but I cant find a babysitter*

* You cant fall off the floor* (although I think that was written by someone with no knowledge of dyspraxia!!)

* I cant decide if I should be a good example or a horrible warning*

* Dont doubt the dream its the best you can be, the dream is the you your longing to be*

* You have to reach before you can teach*








(I think those will do for now!)

That's one of my favourite quotes and I used it in my student council manifesto. And I won the election!
Well, I didn't exactly win. There were so few applicants I won by default!
