I’m a sucker for great quotes. I love them. I love quotes by famous people, quotes from movies, quotes on success or leadership or creativity or any other topic for that matter. I love scouring through them, finding the gems, memorizing them, and then pondering them often and repeating them in convos if there’s a shred of relevance. There’s something really magical about a great quote – one that can distill a powerful idea to its essence, or impart wisdom in a mere sentence, or provide that beautiful, succinct articulation of everything you believe in or are striving for.

I think I’m going to start a separate section on this site where I’ll compile all my favorite quotes and new ones as I find them.

Here’s a random sample of some of my favs off the top of my head tonight:

We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard...

John F. Kennedy

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying; And this same flower that smiles today, Tomorrow will be dying.

Robert Herrick

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.

Albert Einstein

Real Gs move in silence like lasagna.
