A lot of Jocks here have great tag-lines – some amusing, many inspirational.

A few of my favo(u)rite inspirational quotes are…

"A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step"
Lao Tzu

"A wise man plants trees under which he will never sit."
Chinese proverb

"There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting."
The Buddha

"The Only Thing necessary for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing."
Edmund Burke & others

Please add any of your own…

-- "Do not speak – unless it improves on silence." --- "Following the rules and protecting the regulations is binding oneself without rope."
