We seriously undervalue the passion... a person brings to an enterprise. You can rent a brain, but you can't rent a heart.
In our business, the windows of opportunity open and close with dazzling rapidity... I constantly have to remind people to seize the moment.


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
