I was an avid wrestler in high school. 3 time state qualifier-3-time place winner. unfortunately the law had better plans than a scholarship. ANYWAYS, my all time favorite quote. not sure who said it, not sure it really matters. and of course all those who think wrestlers are a bunch of queers who like touching other men, I ignore your ignorance:

WRESTLERS: Are the strongest fastest and smartest athletes in the world. But that's not what makes them unique. They are the MOST dedicated people in the world. They sacrifice their lives to a sport of fighting. Where practice is 3 hours of lifting and throwing and conditioning. 3 hours of a literal street brawl. They give up their social lives. They cant party and get drunk because making weight on Saturday won't allow it. They cant go smoke after school cause they worked too damn hard to get into shape. They have no team out on the mat with them to help get past an opponent. They stand on a mat with all eyes on them, alone, no one to fall back on when they make a mistake, no safety to make the tackle, and no goalie to make a diving save. They are the leanest meanest and strongest in the world. Ladies want them, men want to be just like them. So this is a tribute to all those who sacrifice everything, their free time, their food, and most importantly their life. Why would someone work so hard, til they are puking in practice, sweating in their 3 layers and a sauna suit or skipping that badass party? Or why would they induce the blood sweat and tears? Or the early morning runs, or mid day workouts or the extra run after practice to lose that last pound to make weight. The road in wrestling always ends in tears. The man that takes second cries cause his dreams are over, and the man that wins it all cries more than anybody because finally everything that they have afore mentioned is finally worth while. Wrestlers will wrestle through anything because they are friggin' wrestlers. And greatness walks right with the word wrestler. I salute all who commit there life to something greater, something bigger than themselves. Wrestlers dont do wrestling cause they like it, you would be crazy to like to beat yourself up on a daily basis, and get beaten up by teammates and opponents just as much. Yet there are the few who love it, they do it cause they were born to. These select people I applaud. There is no future in wrestling, no pro league, no million dollar contract. Just a smelly practice room and a dream to be great.Wrestling is not a sport, its a lifestyle

"Every day we all expireance these moments of peace... the trick is to know when they are happening, so we can embrace them, live in them."

"Fall in love or fall in hate. Get inspired or be depressed. Ace a test or flunk a class. Make babies or make art. Speak the truth or lie and cheat. Dance on tables or sit in the corner. Life is diving chaos. Embrace it. Forgive yourself. Breathe. And enjoy the ride"

"When darkness approaches, you have to muster your courage and harness your strength and stare it straight in the eye."

"If you wish upon a star, your dreams really can come true. Unless that shooting star is actually a meteor hurtling to Earth to destroy all life as we know it. Then you are pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for, unless it's death by meteor..."

"People that would never think of committing suicide or ending their life would think nothing of dribbling their life away in useless minutes and hours every day." -- Thomas Carlisle

"Judge yourself by the intentions of your actions and by the strength by which you faced the challenges that stood in your way."

"The universe is vast and we are so small. There is only really one thing we can control...whether we are good, or evil."

Some of my favorite...
