“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”— Steve Jobs
“For what it’s worth - it’s never too late … to be whoever you want to be … I hope you have a life you’re proud of - if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”— F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
“May the sun bring you new energy by day.
May the moon softly restore you by night.
May the rain wash away your worries.
May the breeze blow new strength into your being.
May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.”— Apache Blessing
“While prosperity and longevity arrive together, they cannot be treated the same. With greater wealth, people in Asia may not have to work as many hours as they do now. But living longer means they will have to work more years, not fewer. Just as Northern European countries such as Iceland and Norway have raised the age of retirement, so must every prospering economy. To do otherwise would unjustly burden future generations.”—
“There is no substitute for hard work, for doing well at the job you’re in. When I made coffee and Xeroxed and distributed newspapers at ABC News, I thought my life was over. But I did it; I didn’t complain. And along the way, I learned a lot, and was ready for the bigger jobs that were around the corner.”— Katie Couric
“Don’t borrow to buy a depreciating assets. Almost every consumer product from an iPod to a sofa is worth less the moment you buy it. You are just paying extra for it with a loan. Borrowing, by the way, means taking out a loan, buying it on installment or using your credit card when you don’t have the money to pay off the balance. If you can’t afford it, don’t buy it.”— Damon Darlin
“If you challenge your own, you won’t be so quick to accept the unchallenged assumptions of others. You’ll be a lot less likely to be caught up in bias or prejudice or be influenced by people who ask you to hand over your brains, your soul, or your money because they have everything all figured out for you.”— Alan Alda
“Before you speak, listen.
Before you write, think.
Before you spend, earn.
Before you invest, investigate.
Before you criticize, wait.
Before you pray, forgive.
Before you quit, try.
Before you retire, save.
Before you die, give.”—William Arthur Ward
“1. Control your destiny or someone else will.
2. Face reality as it is, not as it was or you wish it were.
3. Be candid with everyone.
4. Don’t manage, lead.
5. Change before you have to.
6. If you don’t have competitive advantage, don’t compete.”— Jack Welch
