„Если вам уже совершенно некогда отдохнуть — значит, самое время отдохнуть.“

„The generality of mankind is lazy. What distinguishes men of genuine achievement from the rest of us is not so much their intellectual powers and aptitudes as their curiosity, their energy, their fullest use of their potentialities. Nobody really knows how smart or talented he is until he finds the incentives to use himself to the fullest. God has given us more than we know what to do with.“

„Our dilemma is that we hate change and love it at the same time; what we really want is for things to reamin the same but get better...“

„Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway“

„An idealist believes the short run doesn't count. A cynic believes the long run doesn't matter. A realist believes that what is done or left undone in the short run determines the long run.“
