I'm obsessed with "it's a beautiful day to save lives" -Grey's Anatomy. It reminds me that everyday is a great day to save someone whether its from illness or themselves. It reminds me to be the change I wish to see in the world.
I do have the quote: "Be the change that you wish to see" as a favorite mantra as well :)

"Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying "I will try again tomorrow"."

My other one is that remember you ASKED to be here, you WANT to be a nurse, no one is making you. So when it's tough and you want to give up think of all the people that wish they could be in your place.

To draw an analogy: a man's suffering is similar to the behavior of gas. If a certain quantity of gas is pumped into an empty chamber, it will fill the chamber completely and evenly, no matter how big the chamber. Thus suffering completely fills the human soul and conscious mind, no matter whether the suffering is great or little. Therefore the "size" of human suffering is absolutely relative." Viktor Frankl.

I keep a running list of favorite quotes and maxims. I feel connected to the author and that in itself is some relief.
I love this thread. "Be still and know this too shall pass." My sister and I share this with each other in hard times.
I have a special prayer that I always say on the bus on my way to clinical. I say: God, please help me to be the best nursing student that I can be today. Please help me to help my patients, my fellow students, the nurses, the aides, the doctors, and my clinical instructor. Amen.Also, during the actual clinicals I sing that song from the karate kid, "you're the best around"
Thanks for all the inspiration :)
This is mine:
"So don't be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble, to fall, cause most of the time the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most."
Everything will be okay in the end, if it's not okay it's not the end!
They are all crazy until proven otherwise.
This thread came at the perfect time for me…teetering on the edge of a meltdown while staring down a paper. Thanks to everyone for sharing. I have seen a bunch of my fav's, here is another:
No one ever said it would be easy, they said it would be worth it.
