It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.
—John Wooden (American Sportsperson)
It is not enough to succeed, others must fail.
—Gore Vidal (American Novelist)
If one feels the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes one feel aware of God, one need not go far to find it. I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle.
—Vincent van Gogh (Dutch Painter)
Habit is thus the enormous flywheel of society, its most precious conservative agent. It alone is what keeps us all within the bounds of ordinance, and saves the children of fortune from the envious uprisings of the poor.
—William James (American Philosopher)
There is no use going back looking for the lost opportunity; someone else has found it.

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
The character and qualifications of the leader are reflected in the men he selects, develops and gathers around him. Show me the leader and I will know his men. Show me the men and I will know their leader. Therefore, to have loyal, efficient employees-be a loyal and efficient employer.
—Arthur W. Newcomb
