When I sleep aboard a boat I often slip a 6" piece of cardboard into the vent over my head to stop the chilly airflow while I sleep. I want to write on it with marker a nice quote I'll look up at every time I'm in bed. I'd like for it to be a nice reminder to see every night before I close my eyes. [more inside]

I have found that when you are motivated to something unusual or difficult people dont hesitate to tell you how flawed your dream is, and why you will never and cannot physically succeed. Sometimes, these thoughts creep into my head, which I would like to combat, thus my question.
I need quotes or excerpts about people who claimed someone famous in history would never succeed, who ended up making themselves look rather foolish when that person did infact succeed. (examples inside) [more inside]
