Sometimes, we all need a little bit of inspiration.
And that goes for hurling and camogie players as well. When you lose a match, it can be very disheartening, so it is common that most players have an inspirational quote that they would live by.
After reading an inspirational quote it can surge you on and help you get your motivation back. These hurling and camogie players told us what quotes they live by, let us know if you agree with them or not!
“Everyone is fighting their own battle, so always try your best to be nice.”
“Treat others as you would like to be treated. I remember my secondary school teacher Sister Bosco taught us that and it was one that always stuck.”
“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.”
“Attitude is tremendously important in chasing success…in any field of endeavour. That’s why talent alone will get you very little in this world” – Jim Stynes
“My father told me always to just enjoy the sport. If you don’t enjoy the sport, you won’t get anything out of it. So, just enjoy it!”
“Failure is only the option to begin again more intelligently.”
“The quote in Coach Carter actually, the one Cruz says when he is asked about his deepest fear
Timo Cruz: Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frighten us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.”
“God gives his toughest battles to his toughest soldiers”
“Live every day like it’s your last.”
