Many athletes have motivational phrases e.g. Lance Armstrong - Pain is Temporary, Quitting is forever.
'Winners never quit, quitters never win'
- Vince Lombardi
That Buddha, he was a racing snake wasn't he?
'HTFU' (some bullying troll or other.)

n- n- now th- that don't kill me can only make me stronger i need you to hurry up now cause i can't wait much longer
- Kanye West
not sure it counts because technically its a lyric, but it serves its purpose.
"Pain is just the sensation of weakness leaving the body"...... Which was my old PE teachers favourite.
Either that or "Run you fat B**tard. RUN" which is another personal favourite.
Read these on RW US forum on a similar thread to this and they stuck.

I like that one...
Have got a US Marines top with the "Pain is just weakness leaving the body..." motto on it.
I like the Roger Bannister one (although it's not a phrase per se)...
"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or a gazelle--when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."
Just do it - Nike.
If that doesn't work - JFDI
