"Follow your bliss. If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open the doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be. If you follow your bliss, doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else." – Joseph Campbell

You were not born to fail." – Og Mandino

"One day you are here and one day, poof, you're gone. When that day comes it won't matter what car you drive, where you live or how much money you have in the bank. What will matter are the people you impacted and the legacy you left. Invest in relationships. Start now!" – Jon Gordon
