    I have all of his stand up stuff saved on my cable HD recorder, I'm devastated that I never was able to see him live when he came to Australia.

    Coincidentally enough, right as I was reading this post "Charlie Sheen vs Henry Rollins" by Alexisonfire came up on my ipod.

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 up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for 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 knew neither victory nor defeat."

    I don't think I have ever heard a better quote that actually verbalizes why I do what I do...lift weights.
    Who is that by sir?

    Got a great one from Matt Griff (over at sugden barbell)

    When someone posted a topic wondering about powerlifting science for weightlifting, like strongman trianing, deadlift, stone lifting etc Matt said this.

    this ones by eminem - "Cause sometimes you feel tired, feel weak. And when you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just... give up. But you gotta search within you, you gotta find that inner strength and just pull that sh** out of you, and get that motivation to not give up, and not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face, and collapse."

    my personal best motivation - philippians 4:13 - "I can do anything through Christ who strengthens me."

    another good one by avenged sevenfold - "No one will ever slow me down... I'll stay unbound."

The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds."
    Now that is a damn good quote. This is why I have such a close relationship with this life style. Damn I love weights lol.
    Anything I say is purely for entertainment purposes and should not be considered medical advice. I am not a doctor and my medical and scientific knowledge is limited to what I have studied.
