I rate enthusiasm even above professional skill.
Going to work for a large company is
like getting on a train. Are you going sixty
miles an hour or is the train going sixty
miles an hour and you're just sitting still?
--J. Paul Getty
Hard work without talent is a shame, but talent without hard
work is a tragedy.
He who knows the universe and does not know himself knows
--Jean De La Fontaine
The man who will use his skill
and constructive imagination to see
how much he can give for a dollar,
instead of how little he can give for
a dollar, is bound to succeed.
Do more than is required. What is the distance between
someone who achieves their goals consistently and those who
spend their lives and careers merely following? The extra mile.
--Gary Ryan Blair
