The cowards never started…Phil Knight.

…and the weak died along the way

But if you’re still standing
then for you, success is certain,
and you deserve it
because you started when cowards were afraid
to venture out of the comfort zone
and face the unknown;

along the way, when the weak died and risk takers
became quitters, your belief grew stronger,
and now, your determination
has brought you to the point
where quitting is no longer an option
because success is sure.


The cowards never started and the weak died along the way. That leaves us, ladies and gentlemen. Us. – Phil Knight.
