Motivation for Police Officers
I know this may be somewhat on the topic of law enforcement, but hear me out. I came across an article way back when in the Modesto Bee about the Rewards of Being in Law Enforcement, but I can't find it.
So here's my question for everyone: What quotes out there give you motivation to be a cop?
My bathroom has a law enforcement theme going right now (lol) so I'd like to put something up there to read for motivation everyday since I'm in the process of becoming a deputy sheriff.
Thanks everyone! Can't wait to see what you say!

Look up the essay "On Sheep, Sheepdogs and Wolves" by Lt Col Dave Grossman. Its far to long to post here, but it probably the most inspirational thing you'll ever read. I read it at the start of my work week, every week.
Another inspirational quote for me is the one in my signature from Isaiah. It sums up how I feel about this profession. Send me into the breach. Send me into trouble. Send me.

A good man would prefer to be defeated than to defeat injustice by evil means. -Sallust
If it were not for injustice, men would not know justice. -Heraclitus
It is a denial of justice not to stretch out a helping hand to the fallen; that is the common right of humanity. -Seneca
Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first. -Ronald Reagan
I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

You want motivation while you're in the bathroom?
How about: $#!+ or get off the pot.
If you think you'll need a plunger, you probably will!
If it's yellow let it mellow, If it's brown flush it down!
Don't shake it more than twice, because... well... you know.
This is the sink not a cute little pee basin!
