Steve Jobs

“Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.”

Lewis Carroll

“If you want to inspire confidence, give plenty of statistics – it does not matter that they should be accurate, or even intelligible, so long as there is enough of them.”

Groucho Marx

“From the moment I picked your book up until I laid it down I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.”

Oliver Wendell Holmes

“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“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 bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch . . . to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!”

Thomas Jefferson

“It is to me a new and consolatory proof that wherever the people are well informed they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights.”

John Lennon

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.  When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I wrote down ‘happy.’   They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.“

George Washington

“To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.”
