Impossible is nothing.

Print it out on your wall and look at it every time you go in an LSAT slump.

Wealth and honours, which most men pursue, easily change masters; they desert to the side which excels in virtue, industry, and endurance of toil, and they abandon the slothful. - John Milton

My version of an old quote, "Excuses":

Excuses are the tools of the weak and the incompetent.
They serve as building blocks of inadequacies.
And build monuments of nothingness on pillars of instabilities.
Those who employ this theory or its practices
Excel in them and seldom do so in anything else.
Therefore, I have no excuses.

The highest compliment that you can pay me is to say that I work hard every day, that I never dog it.
Wayne Gretzky 

You can do more, you can always do more.
Dan Marino

You need to feel that the game is important to you. Lose that feeling and you lose your edge. There's no faking that kind of emotion. You can't invent the feeling. It's got to be natural, real.
Dan Marino

I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.
Muhammad Ali

I hated every minute of training, but I said, "Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion."
Muhammad Ali

If you even dream of beating me you'd better wake up and apologize. 
Muhammad Ali

It isn't the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it's the pebble in your shoe. 
Muhammad Ali 

It's hard to be humble, when you're as great as I am. 
Muhammad Ali 

What keeps me going is goals. 
Muhammad Ali


If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up, or Fight Like Hell. 
Lance Armstrong 

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever. 
Lance Armstrong 

Winning is about heart, not just legs. It's got to be in the right place. 
Lance Armstrong 

This ain't fun. But you watch me, I'll get it done. 
Jackie Robinson 

I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying. 
Michael Jordan 

I never looked at the consequences of missing a big shot... when you think about the consequences you always think of a negative result. 
Michael Jordan 

I've always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come. 
Michael Jordan 

I've failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed. 
Michael Jordan 

If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome. 
Michael Jordan 

If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it. 
Michael Jordan 

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game. 
Michael Jordan 

My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength. 
Michael Jordan 

Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen. 
Michael Jordan 

To be successful you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve. And once you get to your highest level, then you have to be unselfish. Stay reachable. Stay in touch. Don't isolate. 
Michael Jordan 

You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them. 
Michael Jordan

Somebody may beat me, but they are going to have to bleed to do it.

Your performance on this single exam is the difference between acceptance and rejection, the difference between scholarship and no scholarship, the difference between a career with a ceiling and a career without a ceiling.

You can choose to bust your ass - and eliminate as many mistakes, reduce as much uncertainty, as possible - and capitalize. Or, you can sit around on a message board asking for us to do your willpower for you, while your competition studies. Hard.

Your call.


This gave me that ashamed feeling you got when your parents found out you didn't go over to Marks house to "study"...

Thank you for quoting "The Man"

"Study your lessons, don't settle for less. "

"Never surrender, it's all about the faith you got don't ever stop, just push it til you hit the top and if you drop, at least you know you gave your all be true to you, and that way you can never fall. "
