What is a short inspirational quote or proverb that can fit on the bill of my hat?

Question by nels: What is a short inspirational quote or proverb that can fit on the bill of my hat?
I am looking for a very inspirational quote or proverb or whatever, that could fit on the bottom of the bill of my baseball hat. I sometimes find myself slacking off a little bit and know that if I have something like this quote on my hat, I can look up at it and be inspired. I would prefer a quote about “Effort” or “Giving it your all” or “give 100 percent” or something like that.

Thanks in advance!!!!
