Each day, I will post a quote made by myself or one that I found that I thought was striking. Should you wish to vie for a daily spot, PM me with a quote of your own and I may feature it for the day. So, let's begin:

Day 1, Oct 30 (EST): No one becomes great by doing what he is required to do well, but rather by doing more than he is required to do extraordinarily well. ~Pebble

Day 2, Oct 31 (EST): Find within yourself that which is the weakest and that which is the strongest. When this is done, surround yourself with friends that exhibit your weakness as their strength and, if possible, your strength as their weakness. You will improve upon each other. ~Pebble

Day 3, November 1 (EST): Do not let your past define you to such an extent that you allow it to define your future. Do, however, let your past mold you into an individual more capable of making wiser choices. ~Pebble

Day 4, November 2 (EST): Love without pain is nonexistent. If the thought of losing someone hurts, you most probably love them. On the other hand, pain without love is emotional torture - so love, with all that you are, so that you may spare your heart the torment when all seems to have fallen apart. ~Pebble

Day 5, November 3 (EST): It is fine to fear power - whether under it or holding it. With one, you are submitting to an authority, which may or may not corrupt. Yet, holding power grants more cause to tremble - if subjected to an angered, mistreated populace. ~Pebble

Day 6, November 4 (EST): I rarely forgive people. I simply forget to be mad at them. ~Pebble

Day 7, November 5 (EST): Remember, remember the fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot. ~Unknown?

Day 8, November 6 (EST): Bitterness is to hate as forgiveness is to love. ~Pebble

Day 9, November 7 (EST): Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward. ~Kurt Vonnegut (Suggested by Hassan al-Sabbah)

Day 10, November 8 (EST): Sometimes individuals are forced into slavery. More often, however, the individual volunteers to be a slave by their absence of activism and their excessive ignorance. Their minds create the chains that bind them.~Pebble

Day 11, November 9 (EST): Only individuals blind to both his own capabilities and the capabilities of the people around him say that something improbable is impossible. ~Pebble

Day 12, November 10 (EST): It does not matter who you loved, but, rather, the passion in which you loved. ~Pebble

Day 13, November 11 (EST): I'm not strong. I'm not handsome. I'm not even coordinated. But what I am is what I love to be - me. And I wouldn't deny myself the joy of individuality for anything this would could offer in exchange. ~Pebble

Day 14, November 12 (EST): Anything less than perfect cannot be seen as fully good. Thus, everything has at least a dash of evil. ~Pebble

Day 15, November 13 (EST): Almost every invention will have at least one of these along side it: one trying to steal credit, one thinking it a danger to society, a disproven skeptic, or a government looking for a way to tax it. ~Pebble

Day 16, November 14 (EST): One day you will ask me which is more important? My life or yours? I will say mine and you will walk away not knowing that you are my life. ~Khalil Gibran

Day 25, November 23 (EST): Hate is powerful. It can destroy nearly anything. Love is powerful. It is the one thing hate has yet to conquer. ~Pebble

Day 34, December 2 (EST): Life is like a song. One must first be taught the rhythm and the lyrics before it can be sung. And though the song may be similar to others before it, each rendition varies- some parts sung better, some parts worse, and an eventual misspeak of the lyrics. ~Pebble

You can put the full quote in the thread if you want. It is technically a quote, and thus relevant.
