I had to share the two best quotes I’ve seen over the past week, plus one of my own:
“The best way to predict the future is to invent it” – Vinod Khosla, one of the founders of Sun Microsystems, when asked what would be the next “big thing” in the field.
So true. Our futures are not predestined – we have more control over it than we think.
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts” – attributed to Winston Churchill
(Interesting side note on this one – in doing a little research on the quote the site for the Churchill Centre claims that he never said it, claiming to have made a careful review of all of his papers, books, articles and speeches)
Whether Churchill said it or not, I really like this quote because it illustrates the need for continuous forward motion in our lives, whatever the result.
“Happiness is a box we should always check ‘yes’ ” – Starbucker
Being happy starts with intent – ya gotta want it to get it.
Hope these little “bon-mots” help you as we end another week and enjoy the first day of Summer, 2008.
Have a great weekend!
