Slogans to motivate students

First of all I wish all of you a very happy and prosperous new year.

The exams of my students are coming near. In order to motivate them to study harder I am thinking of giving them a motivational poster which they should paste at their study places. I thought of the following lines.

What I do today will determine how I will face my parents, teachers,
friends and relatives on the result day.
Whether my head will be high with pride or down with shame.

Do you think it will work? And also whether in place of high I should use up. Do you have any other suggestions or lines?

Thanks and regards

Isn �t it more important that it may change the way they feel about themselves??
I suggest googling "motivational quotes" and see what you can come up with.
I simply copied some from the first site I clicked on:
"I �m not telling you it is going to be easy - I �m telling you it �s going to be worth it"
-- Art Williams

"The most painful thing to experience is not defeat but regret"
-- Leo Bascaglia

"The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one."
-- Elbert Hubbard

These quotes I gave -printed on a bookmark- to my students last year:
"Excellence is not a skill, it is an attitude"   Ralph Marston
"No-one knows what he can do until he tries"   Publilius Syrus
and since there was a spelling mistake in one of them (which I noticed only after handing them out) I made a new bookmark which read:
"Learn from the mistakes of others, you can never live long enough to make them all yourself"  John Luther
