You must do as well as you can whatever God gives you to do; that is the best possible preparation for what he may want you to do next.

Thomas Chalmers

You don’t believe in these things. You’re just writing pretty images. Write what you feel. And if you’re really honest, you’ll be writing for everybody else.

Oscar Hammerstein, to a 16-year-old Stephen Sondheim

You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.

Abraham Lincoln

You can work really hard in your job and make a living. You can work really hard on yourself and make a fortune. Love your life, and leave a legacy worth remembering.

Dan Miller
