Hey, just post any quotes you find inspirational, funny or otherwise cool in here. I'll start us off.

Here's a few from Rippetoe:
"Poor form in the gym is caused by insufficient yelling."

"Absolutely not. Never -- and I mean NEVER -- try anything that someone in authority, like Me, has not specifically approved in advance. This is not allowed, and is specifically prohibited, because if you do this irresponsible thing -- this Trying Things For Yourself -- you might learn on your own, and again, this is PROHIBITED.
Let me ask you a question: Are you from North Korea?"

"Rip: "You would look better if you gained about 10 lbs of muscle" Woman responds with look of utter horror. Rip: "Trust me, I've been looking at women a long time, and I'm really good at it."

"And no, you don't excrete excess calories, because evolution didn't see fit to exterminate the species in this way. If that happened, fat people would be in zoos where they belong since they'd be quite rare."

And last but not least: "Strong people are harder to kill than weak people and more useful in general." - Mark Rippetoe

"I think the biggest regret is that I would just lived and died as someone that no one knew, thats boring" -- bhop


"First you have to know, not fear, know that some day you're gonna die... it's only after we've lost everything, that we're free to do anything" -- tyler derdan (Fight Club)


"Try hitting yourself in the balls with a hammer very hard. Then jump immediately. You won't get very high. Does this imply that the testicles are important for jumping?"

-Axel



"I know I shouldn't congratulate you because you are asian and I was pissed at what happened back then in Vietnam, but under the bar, we are all brothers" -- American Powerlifter

found this one in RJ's signature on DB hammer: The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark. -Michelangelo

"Further one must display the release of solid waste appropriately [after each meal or snack, without odor, proper texture etc.] and no compensation patterns when performing general movements such as but not limited to walking, sitting, standing. If any of these requirements are not met it is determined that mastery has not occurred."
