I like the one by Henry Ford. I do believe what you believe is possible is possible.
My son at about 9 y/o (now he is 19) wrote this and I keep it on a bulletin board. Yes there is a spelling error. "A smart man should use his ability to help others then he is wortey of being smart."
I thought it was pretty amazing for one so young. But then he has turned out to be an amazing young man.
