Blixseth - Ideas
Your life right now is a reflection of your
past thoughts. That includes all the great
things, and all the things you consider

every subject of your life, because that
is what you have experienced.
Byrne - Thinking

of all types. The twentieth century was
a century of greatness, but we face the

like most of anything else in life.. fall
somewhere between mediocre and good.
Collins - Society

The three great essentials to achieve anything worth while are, first, hard
work; second, stick-to-itiveness; third, common sense.

his opinions courageously and honestly.
Einstein - True

characteristic of a great leader.

achieving success through honest dealing
and strict adherence to the view that, for
you to gain, those you deal with should
gain as well.
Greenspan - Success
I think the
great livers, the people who are fully self-actualizing and alive, are the great
Victor Hansen - Philanthropy
Charity is a supreme virtue, and the great channel through which the mercy
of God is passed on to mankind. It is the virtue that unites men and inspires
their noblest efforts.
Hilton - Philanthropy

A great company in the media business needs visionary leaders, not a conglomerate
structure headquartered in Columbus Circle that second guesses.
Icahn - Companies

don't know if there's a need for it. You
also have to research your competition.

far greater than anyone else that Ive
met, and I think that I thrive on that.

the most dangerous fruits on the tree of
humanity. They hang upon the most slender
twigs that are easily snapped off.
Jung - Great

developing our greatest abilities, because
in each of us there is a private hope and
dream which, fulfilled, can be translated
into benefit for everyone and greater strength
for our nation.
F. Kennedy - Education
The greatest glory in living lies not in
never falling, but in rising every time
Mandela - Inspirational
God is dead. God remains dead. And we have
killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves,
the murderers of all murderers? What was
holiest and mightiest of all that the world
has yet owned has bled to death under our
knives: who will wipe this blood off us?
What water is there for us to clean ourselves?
What festivals of atonement, what sacred
games shall we have to invent? Is not the
greatness of this deed too great for us?
Must we ourselves not become gods simply
to appear worthy of it?
Nietzsche - God
It's the little things you do that can make
a big difference. What are you attempting
to accomplish? What little thing can you
do today that will make you more effective?
You are probably only one step away from
Proctor - Change
I am proud of my country. But we need to
unite to make a unified India, free of communalism
and casteism. We need to build India into
a land of equal opportunity for all. We
can be a truly great nation if we set our
sights high and deliver to the people the
fruits of continued growth, prosperity and
Tata - India
The starting point of great success and
achievement has always been the same. It
is for you to dream big dreams. There is
nothing more important, and nothing that
works faster than for you to cast off your
own limitations than for you to begin dreaming
and fantasizing about the wonderful things
that you can become, have, and do.

a sad habit of dying off. Chaucer is dead,
Spencer is dead, so is Milton, so is Shakespeare,
and Im not feeling so well myself.
Twain - Death
Keep away from people who try to belittle
your ambitions. Small people always do that,
but the really great make you feel that
you, too, can become great.
Twain - Ambition
Great ideas come from everywhere if you
just listen and look for them. You never
know whos going to have a great idea.
Walton - Great
Some great people are leaders and others
are more lucky, in the right place at the
right time. I'd put myself in the latter
category. But I'd never call myself a normal
designer of anything.

even for a day, that would be a great thing.

I could have at the university.
Yunus - Help
It occurred to me that building a company
was the best way to align a group of people
towards building something great. And its
really.. it's a good organizational structure
where you can really reward people. If they're
building something that's good, you can
you work with partners and reward them if
the product that you're developing work
well. It's a good way to get the best people
involved to build something very good.
Zuckerberg - Facebook
