  1. Thanks for compiling that list of wonderful and helpful quotes. I really liked the Colin Powell quote about what it takes to succeed. Reminds me of a Willie Crawford quote that is both simple and powerful: “Take massive action now!”. Basically, if you don’t do it, don’t start it right now, you might never accomplish what you want to. Good words to learn from.

Personally, I like quotes, and use them when I’m not ready to read books. I eat them like fast food for my intellectual diet.
