Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life.
--Dr. David M Burns
A college degree is not a sign that one is a finished product but an indication a person is prepared for life.
--Reverend Edward A. Malloy
The person who knows "how" will always have a job. The person who knows "why" will always be his boss.
The executive exists to make sensible exceptions to general rules.
--Elting E. Morison
