Inspirational Monday - Quotes

We all come across challenges in our lifetime. And occasionally, a word you hear from a family-member, a friend, on TV or on the Web can make the difference and give you the renewed commitment you need. Today's inspiration comes from a number of quotes I came across. Some I've heard before, and some were funny considering their source; while others were refreshingly new.
