What's everyone's favorite inspirational motto? I have a few that I borrowed from some friends on Twitter. Here's one that some of you cartoon voice actor fans may find familiar...

Laughter is the best medicine and the cool thing is you can't OD and the refills are free.

Here's one I picked up more recently:

Have courage, be kind, walk through today with a positive mind... and get outside.

I actually got a really good one from a fortune cookie earlier in the year.

All the water in the world can't sink a ship unless it gets inside.

Kind of deep and empowering for a fortune cookie. Whatever negative thing you're dealing with... it can't bring you down unless you let it in and allow it to.

This is my daily affirmation. I have it on my desk at work so I can see it first thing when I get there:

This is the beginning of a new day.
God has given me this day to use as I will.

I can waste it or use it for good,
but what I do today is important
because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever,
leaving in its place something that I have traded for it.

I want it to be gain and not loss; good and not evil;
success and not failure; in order that I shall not
regret the price I have paid for it.

Lord loves a workin' man; don't trust whitey; see a doctor and get rid of it.

"If you can't take it with you- don't go!" One I came up with myself.

"Diz-me com quem tu andas e dir-te-ei quem és."

How to translate this... tell me who you hang out with and I'll tell you who/what kind of person you are, basically.

Does the Superman theme by John Williams count? Not exactly words, but it sure is something I live by.
