    The two that got me through nursing school and the math pre-reqs are:

    "When God leads you to it..He WILL lead you through it."

    and this one:

    "Failure is NOT an option!!"

    I have a t-shirt, a coffee mug, a license plate frame and a key ring with that quote on it.

    i have little sayings taped all over my desk so i see them often when i'm trying to study.

    the first one is short and sweet: look at life as an adventure....not a struggle.

    this story (kinda long i know) applies to more then nursing. life in general.

    [font=kristen itc]words to live by:

    [font=kristen itc]no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

    [font=kristen itc]you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled christmas tree lights.

    [font=kristen itc]regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.

    [font=kristen itc]making a "living" is not the same thing as "making a life".

    [font=kristen itc]life sometimes gives you a second chance.

    [font=kristen itc]you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back.

    [font=kristen itc]whenever you decide something with an open heart, you usually make the right decision.

    [font=kristen itc]even when you have pains, you don't have to be one.

    [font=kristen itc]every day you should reach out and touch someone.

    [font=kristen itc]people love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

    [font=kristen itc]you still have a lot to learn.

    [font=kristen itc]people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

    [font=kristen itc]enjoy

    [font=kristen itc]have a great day!

    "If you can dream it, you can do it." -Walt Disney
    I've always loved that quote. What I found ironic is on the first day of LPN school (this past March) I was looking through my A&P syllibus and on the very top of the first page that exact quote was there! To me, it was like a "sign" that all would work out.

    "failure is NOT an option"

    I like the Dory from Nemo quote that others have put.."just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."

    I'm sure there are others I've recited in my head, just at this very second, my mind is saturated with newly learned material, homework I have to get done, fretting about next week and the 5 tests we have (one test on each day...blehh!).

    OH! Of course the quote that I sing and do a little dance to when I check my test score at the end of the day and its within the range I strive to keep my grades at..this one is from SpongeBob SquarePants (and anyone who has heard it and has seen the show will KILL me when its stuck in their heads for the rest of the day..."its the bessssssttttt daaaaayyyyyy everrrr!!"
