    While my personal favorite is the one in my signature...another favorite is from Senator Bill Bradley:

    "Never, ever stop practicing, because when you do, someone, somewhere is...and win you both meet, they will win.
    IACOJ.... "Carpe Elkhartem"
    (Seize the Nozzle)

    "Victorious warriors win first,
    and then go to war,
    while defeated warriors go to war first,
    and then seek to win."

                    This one is off the top of my head, so excuse me if I'm off just a bit. I think I can remember it though. I read it 13 years ago, right after I became a firefighter.

                    " I have no ambition in this world, but one.. and that is to be a fireman. The position, in the eyes of some, may appear to be a lowly one. But, we who know the work which a fireman has to do.. believe his is a noble calling. Our proudest moment is to save.... lives. Under the impulse of such thoughts, the nobilty of the occupation thrills us and stimulates us to deeds of darring... even of supreme sacrifice."

                    Chief Croker, FDNY (around 1899 I think)

                    And another I read back then....

                    "If promethius (sp?) was worthy of the wrath of GOD for kindling the first fire on earth, how ought all the gods to honor the men who make it thier professional buisness to put them out."

                    don't remember who said though. I think it was a poet.

                    I can't believe you guys forgot the only REAL good one from backdraft..

                    "When the doors open... if it's hot... don't get out."

                    And one I use when there is some crummy work that needs to be done around the station..

                    " I must have told myself a million times... I don't even want to be a damn fireman"

                    one more....

                    "Theres no way I'll wreck this truck eh... it's a beer truck"
                    Strange Brew

                    That'll do for now

                                Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
                                Theodore Roosevelt

                                It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
                                Theodore Roosevelt

                                When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
                                Franklin D. Roosevelt

                                When they call the roll in the Senate, the Senators do not know whether to answer "Present" or "Not Guilty."
                                Theodore Roosevelt
                                After I'm dead I'd rather have people ask why I have no monument than why I have one
