There are two ways to learn:
1. By being right
2. By being wrong

The only thing achieved without effort is failure.

Anything unattempted remains impossible.

The best way to predict the future is to invent it.

And my personal favorite...
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, it is measured by the number of moments that take our breath away.

When you make a decision, stick to it, even in the heat of the moment. Fear, anger, adrenaline, hormones, and rage make a man do strange things.

Anger is Fear in drag.

Man up.

Pain is fleeting, chicks dig scars, glory lasts forever. (the replacements)

Breathe, Breathe!

Just because someone else is doing wrong, that don't make it ok for you too.

Maybe you should use a box knife. (I got a great scar!)

How will I ever get this done?
This is how. Start, don't stop.

If you think its time to leave, you have overstayed your welcome.

Marriage is between a man and his wife, not a man and his wife and you.

Time is the greatest healer.

Not so much advice, but a funny quote nonetheless:

Gun and knife are interchangeable. I'm frequently surprised by folks that were never taught this one.
