My favorite is "Pain is weakness leaving the body."
Possibly motivating for some (mid 30's to 40's guys?)
I found this somewhat motivating and inspirational when I came across it recently. YMMV.
Mark Twight is a climber who also seems to facilitate a training gym called "Gym Jones".
Here's some from a book I just got...
" Victory is reserved for those who are willing to pay it's price".....Sun Tzu
"Superficial goals lead to superficial results".....Attila the Hun
"Fall down seven times...get up eight".......Japanese proverb
" Defeat is a state of mind. No one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality.To me, defeat in anything is merely temporary, and it's punishment is but an urge for me to greater effort to achieve my goal. Defeat simply tells me there is something wrong in my doing;it is a path leading to success and truth."......Bruce Lee
" He who has a "why" to live for..can bear almost any "how"......Friedrich Nietzsche
" It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop".....Confucius
"It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped!"

My personal quote is: If you never try you will always fail.
Some other good ones:
“In war there is no second prize for the runner–up.” ––GEN Omar Bradley
“Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not. This is the first lesson to be learned.”––Thomas Huxley
“God grant that men of principle shall be our principal men.”––Thomas Jefferson
“The real leader displays his quality in his triumphs over adversity however great it may be.”––GEN George Marshall 1941
This was originally said for rowing, but i think can be applied to anything.
"The next time you treat yourself to bacon and eggs, look down at your plate and think about contribution vs committment. That chicken made a contribution to your breakfast, but the pig... he made a commitment... Be A Pig."
It's in my sig!
This can apply to everything too: "If you want to learn to fight, train, if you want to win, train harder." Unknown.
New(ish) ones - Thanks to the motivational wolf
If you can't sleep / you're not burning enough energy
Better to die of thirst / than drink from the cup of mediocrity.
Victory is victory / Morals will set you back
The greatest victory / is in defeating yourself
If God gives you lemons / bite his fucking balls off.
If you're going through hell / KEEP GOING!
Know your limits / then test them.
Why fear the unknown / when you can conquer it.
Cry more / then try harder
The only true failure / is accepting failure
If you fail, try again / FAIL BETTER
Fall seven times / stand up eight
Having discipline / is the only alternative to weakness.
Act now / No one is remembered for their intentions
If you are proud of what you did yesterday / You haven't done enough today
Trample the weak / Hurtle the dead
Work like a slave / Live like a King
They will tell stories of you / Make them worth hearing
Nobody is judging you / They have their own problems.
The first and last mile / is always the hardest.
When you come to the end of your rope / Let go and hit the ground running.
Acknowledge your betters / surpass them
Suffer the pain of discipline / or suffer the pain of regret.
Knowing is not enough, you must apply / Willing is not enough, you must do
Mistakes / make you stronger
Inaction is slavery / Freedom is a choice
If you're ashamed to start / then you will never finish
Don't worry about what other people think. They don't do it often.
