Good stuff....my favorite quote which I try to live by is "Fail Forward"....when we fall or fail...fall forward so you're still ahead of where you came from...get up and keep moving forward..

Marvin Gaye's quote hit me where I live....and the Lena Horne quote was funny but truer than you know-
"Always be smarter than the people who hired you." This way, you'll always have a job..because they'll
need you. That's the truth,ruth!

"a man should never have to totally stop working to figure out his woman, not if the woman wants him to remain interested. that doesn't mean he can never relax, but simply that a fascinating woman IS high maintenance and doesn't apologize for the fact. does a Mercedes apologize for being high maintenance? does a Jaguar? does an expensive house?"
