“Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.” –-Mary Kay Ash

“There’s no limit to what you can accomplish if you set your mind to it!” –almost every single high school commencement speech every spring

“The only limit to your impact is your imagination and commitment.” –Tony Robbins

“The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.” –Franklin D. Roosevelt

“You can’t put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the farther you get.” –Michael Phelps
