“When I dare to be powerful – to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”

Audre Lorde

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”

Mark Twain

“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

“If you don’t value your time, neither will others. Stop giving away your time and talents. Value what you know & start charging for it.”

Kim Garst

“A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.”

David Brinkley

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Steve Jobs

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
