The quotes and quotes of the famous are everywhere. Especially those related to sport and motivation. On T-shirts, on posters, like graffiti on the walls in fitness, they also appear in various articles on the web. It’s not even missing here on the blog.

Among the best-known motivational sports slogans are the familiar ones: Citius, Altius, Fortius (Faster, higher, stronger), which was adopted by the Olympic movement as the motto of the Olympic Games and was part of the historic Olympic flag. It expresses the goal of the Olympic movement and the pursuit of constant progress. But not only is that what sport is all about.

Remember also the joy of movement, freedom, fair play, and friendship.

Quotes can encourage, help with motivation. Motivational quotes help someone, someone despises them and looks over their fingers. It doesn’t matter, we’re all different.

We are different in sport. Don’t judge other runners for running slow. Each runner has a different goal, a different path. The same is true in fitness or other sports run by amateur athletes and enthusiasts.

Forget the mockery, the needless humiliation of your opponent and the patronizing of others.

Take an interest in your performance not in others. Expressing your admiration to others, losing others, lending a hand.
