^^^ ha ha me too, I'm one of those people who copy out quotes they like.

"You haven't lost just because you haven't medalled. You've lost when you know on that day, you could have got up and tried harder on that routine."

That is my absolute favourite all time quote.

practice doesnt make perfect, practice makes you better!
 
Here are just a few, i also like gracefulone and iheartbeam have tons of quotes saved on my computer i tried to just pick a few of my faves!! but as you can see that wasn't easy.

When there’s something you really want,
fight for it, don’t give up
no matter how hopeless it seems
and when you’ve lost all hope
ask yourself if in ten years from now
are you gonna wish you had one more shot cause
the best things in life
they don’t come free

Don’t let success get to your head or failure to your heart

Obsessed is just a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated

Success is what happens when thousands of hours of practice meet up with one moment of opportunity

don't be afraid to give up the good to go for the great

Don’t give up because it hurts keep going because it makes you stronger

There's no need to reach for the stars. They're
already within you. Just reach deep within yourself

When you want something you've never had 
you have to do some things you've never done before

you have to practice like its a meet or your meet will look like practice

practice doesn't make perfect
practice makes permanent
perfect practice makes perfect

to give anything less than your best is to sacrafice the gift

hard work given time will defeat talent

I always liked the quote:

Focus on the journey, not the destination

as I applied it to enjoying training, rather than worrying about the results in competition. And since I was enjoying training I feel that it helped me learn new skills and to get better.
