A business consultant once told me, “I steal only from the best.”

“The ideas I stand for are not mine. I borrowed them from Socrates. I swiped them from Chesterfield. I stole them from Jesus. And I put them in a book. If you don’t like their rules, whose would you use?”

“The only way to get the best of an argument is to avoid it.”

“Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.”

“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.”

– Dale Carnegie (1888-1955)
