Those who profess to favour freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without ploughing up the ground. "Frederick Douglass"

From The Peloponnesian War (the most important quote I've ever read):

"Inferior intellects generally succeeded best, for aware of their own deficiencies and fearing the capacity of their opponents for whom they were no match for in powers of speech and whose subtle wits were likely to anticipate them in contriving evil, they struck boldly and at once. But the cleverer sort, presuming in their arrogance that they would be aware in time and disdaining to act when they could think, were taken off their guard and easily destroyed."

History belongs to those who act.

"Time is a gift to be well spent -- not a burden. The measure of who you are is wrapped up in how you spend that precious time."

“Through every generation of the human race there has been a constant war, a war with fear. Those who have the courage to conquer it are made free and those who are conquered by it are made to suffer until they have the courage to defeat it, or death takes them.”

― Alexander the Great

Back as a young lad I met a guy driving a beautiful car.

Straight from Italy, a bright red Ferrari F430, I asked him what he does for a living (lol) And he mentioned being a restaurant owner. His quote....

''Work hard and make people happy''


Might of posted this before, just came in my head, I had dreams last night of driving around in a Lamborghini :/ Sucked waking up today!

"No matter how many customers you have, each is an individual. The day you start thinking of them as this amorphous ‘collection’ and stop thinking of them as people is the day you start going out of business."

'If you don't like what's being said, then change the conversation.'

Today I had to fire a client. Instead of being annoyed I turned it in to a marketing opportunity. I only work with the clients who give a damn about the value I bring.

That is so true. You'll spend 80% of your time trying to make a bad client happy while they bring in a just fraction of your cash flow. Choose your clients and customers carefully!
