  2. Success is a journey, not a destination. Ben Sweetland
  3. Spectators never appear in the record books….In the stadium of general management there are spectator stands, and all too often they’re jam-packed.  If you’re sensitive to Monday-morning quarterbacking, if you’re content to be a faceless member of the crowd, if you prefer to remain invulnerable, stay in the stands.  But if you thrive on contact, if you can ignore criticism by non-achievers, if you want to publicly measure your capability, then come on down into the arena. Richard S. Sloma

  8. The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both. James Michener
  9. You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do. Henry Ford
