NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.” – Napoleon Hill (Best-selling author of Think & Grow Rich and the former apprentice of Andrew Carnegie)


NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “The goal is to be able to live your life the way Michael Jordan played basketball or Marvin Gaye sang a song. To be able to feel the way you feel when you laugh at a joke, but to feel that way all the time.” – Marvin Gaye (Motown music recording writer, and vocalist)


NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “You must practically educate yourself, regardless of your accessibility to formal education.” – President Abraham Lincoln

NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Almost everything–all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure–these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” – Steve Jobs (Co-founder of Apple and the former CEO of PIXAR)
