I have found that a good place to find quotes is on FaceBook, people are always putting quotes on there.  I think one of my favourite quotes though was by David O McKay, he said "No Other Success Can Compensate for Failure in the Home".

"Courage is more exhilarating than fear and in the long run it is easier. We do not have to become heroes overnight. Just a step at a time, meeting each thing that comes up, seeing it is not as dreadful as it appeared, discovering we have the strength to stare it down."
