My desk calendar at work for 2013 had a different motto for every day of the year; some, I thought, made good advice for writers:
Don’t wait for your ship to come in; swim out to it.
You cannot direct the wind, but you can adjust your sails.

Goals are dreams with deadlines.
Don’t think you are on the right road just because it’s a well-beaten path.
By the time a man finds greener pastures he can’t climb the fence.
Only Robinson Crusoe could get everything done by Friday.

Don’t let yesterday use up too much of today
When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge.

Thanks to Helena Fairfax for alerting me to http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/ from where these pictures came.
Do you have a favourite motto?
