These are random quotes I’ve enjoyed over the years, in no particular order.
A drenched man is not afraid of the rain.
Success is fucking up on your own terms.
Guillermo del Toro
You cannot make a man by standing a sheep on its hind-legs. But by standing a flock of sheep in that position you can make a crowd of men.
Sir Max Beerbohm, Zuleika Dobson

A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be.
