“It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.”

Theodore Roosevelt

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt


“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.”

Pablo Picasso

“Have the courage to say “no”.

Have the courage to face the truth.

Do the right thing because it is right.

Those are the magic keys to living your life with integrity.”

William Clement Stone

“If you do not wish to be prone to anger, do not feed the habit; give it nothing which may tend to its increase.”


“Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action.”

Benjamin Disraeli

“If parents pass enthusiasm along to their children, they will leave them an estate of incalculable value.”

Thomas Edison

“Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring and integrity,

they think of you.”

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

“The most difficult thing in any negotiation, almost, is making sure you strip it of emotion and deal with the facts.”

Howard Baker

“My father said:

You must never try to make all the money that’s in a deal.

Let the other fellow make some money too,

because if you have a reputation for always making all the money,

you won’t have many deals.”

John Paul Getty
