A wise man learns by the mistakes of others, a fool by his own. -Latin Proverb
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure--which is: Try to please everybody. -Herbert Bayard Swope
What you give is what you get. If you desire excellent results, then sow excellence in all that you do.
"Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use."
