“You can’t do your new job from your old chair.”

“To laugh often and much…”

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success.”

— Ralph Waldo Emerson

I love quotes that reinforce the human spirit of evolution and change.

When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Love this quote by Abraham Maslow, and there are days when this is so true.

Nothing can stop you.

I believe that when you realize who you really are, you understand that nothing can stop you from becoming that person.

— Christine Lincoln

“I am bound to live up to what light I might have.”

“I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to what light I might have.”

— Abraham Lincoln

A man of few words, but words well chosen. Ever humble and wise – what a combination.
