Some Favorite Quotes

Wow, I was going to post this on my internal cms on my local network. Unfortunately, I cannot reach it from where I am. Not sure if it is something about the connection I have down here or if something has happened on the far end. It if is the far end, it either means something bad has happened while I've been out of town or RR finally got around to assigning a new IP address to me. Kind of hard to believe that would have happened, but I guess you never know.

Anyway, I suppose I'll just post these here and everyone can benefit. These quotes were some I put together at some hazy point in my past. I ran across the sheet of them as I was cleaning out some stuff in the office (part of my implementation of GTD - more on that in a subsequent post). So to try to preserve them (and let me get rid of a piece of paper), here they are.
