" Hard work and togetherness. They go hand in hand. You need the hard work because it's such a tough atmosphere... to win week in and week out. You need togetherness because you don't always win, and you gotta hang though together."
Tony Dungy --- Submitted by Jambunathan Iyer --- India

" If an eagle is not flying, what would it be doing? Maybe soaring? If it's neither flying nor soaring, what would it be doing? Probably hibernating - to renew its strength. If it's not doing any of these three? Then it's impersonating - it's not an eagle. We must be true to our KIND!"
Written in 2011 by Segun Ikuemonisan (P. Shegz) --- Nigeria

" Another way that you love your enemy is this: When the opportunity presents itself for you to defeat your enemy, that is the time which you must not do it. There will come a time, in many instances, when the person who hates you most, the person who has misused you most, the person who has gossiped about you most, the person who has spread false rumors about you most, there will come a time when you will have an opportunity to defeat that person. It might be in terms of a recommendation for a job; it might be in terms of helping that person to make some move in life. That's the time you must do it. That is the meaning of love. In the final analysis, love is not this sentimental something that we talk about. It's not merely an emotional something. Love is creative, understanding goodwill for all men. It is the refusal to defeat any individual. When you rise to the level of love, of its great beauty and power, you seek only to defeat evil systems. Individuals who happen to be caught up in that system, you love, but you seek to defeat the system."
Martin Luther King Jr.

" Try handling problems in the office as dispassionately as you can and I guarantee you will have a better time of it; not least because when you bring emotion into the conversation, you furnish your colleagues with an easy 'out' for dismissing you. If you are able to strip out the emotion, however, people have to deal with you based on the facts."
Suze Orman


January 12, 2011
" Your ability to negotiate, communicate, influence, and persuade others to do things is absolutely indispensable to everything you accomplish in life. The most effective men and women in every area are those who can quite competently organize the cooperation and assistance of other people toward the accomplishment of important goals and objectives."
Brian Tracy

" Our business is about technology, yes. But it's also about operations and customer relationships."
Michael Dell

" Anytime you break a moral principal, you create a small crack in the foundation of your integrity. And when times get tough, it becomes harder to act with integrity, not easier. Character isn't created in a crisis; it only comes to light."
John Maxwell

" Obviously everyone wants to be successful, but I want to be looked back on as being very innovative, very trusted and ethical and ultimately making a big difference in the world."
Sergey Brin

" It takes courage to admit that you have been doing something wrong, to admit that you have something to learn, that there is a better way."
W. Edwards Deming


January 5, 2011
" We fail to realize that mastery is not about perfection. It's about a process, a journey. The master is the one who stays on the path day after day, year after year. The master is the one who is willing to try, and fail, and try again, for as long as he or she lives."

" Some days, it's not about passion and courage. It's not about heroism and drama. It's not about slaying dragons or conjuring exotic visions... Some days, it's simply about the delicious act of doing simple things, simply."
Jack Ricchiuto --- Submitted by George Wachirah --- Kenya

" The unity of those associated by mere authority, power, or greed is ultimately weak and unstable. In contrast, the unity of those united by the heart - by bonds of respect, honesty, and compassion - is strong and unshakable."
Taro Gold --- Submitted by George Wachirah --- Kenya
