Weekend Quotes


After spending the last 4 days in San Francisco, it’s good to be back in LA. Jane is still working in Florida for a few more days so I might have to handle most of the updates this week but I’m sure we’ll be seeing some of her from her hotel room when she is free. Here are this weekend’s quotes.

Wayne Gretzky on Direction: “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.”

Abraham Lincoln on Power: “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”

Japanese proverb on Character: “When the character of a man is not clear to you, look at his friends.”

Galileo Galilei on Learning: “I have never met a man so ignorant that I couldn’t learn something from him.”

Pablo Picasso on Belief and Action: “Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.”

David Ogilvy on Marketing: “The more informative your advertising, the more persuasive it will be.”

Sam Keen on Growth: “If I get stuck in who I am now, I will never blossom into who I might yet become. I need to practice the gentle art of letting go.”

Robert Maxwell on Confidence: “I suffer no slings and arrows. I just sail on. That’s the secret of success in life.”

Mark Twain on Rightness: “Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.”
