Great quotes. I especially like the first one.
Funny because I have been looking at quotes recently as I was thinking of having a couple printed and framed in the office. I liked this one:
'I am an optimist. It doesn't seem too much use being anything else'
Winston Churchill

Thank you for some timely reminders as I struggle to get my proverbial creative act together. It's easy to lose sight of why you do what you do. I especially like the last quote. The trick is to create something that people don't know they want until they see it rather than create a faster horse!
