    This obviously isn't directly business related but I'm a big fan of Hemingway. Personally I find this quote inspiring, in terms of looking forward and making the best of what you've got. Lamenting what you haven't got is a waste of time and energy and distracts you from making the best of the resources and abilities available to you.

    It's not a real quote but it's something that I try hard to do all the time cause it's the key to success, simply: Think Different..

    I like that. In the past, I sometimes put something off for a long time because I thought I couldn't do it, only to surprise myself at how well I could do it, once I actually tried. It is amazing what you can do when you really have to do it. Your quote reminds me of;

    and

    Can you explain this for non-programmers like myself manish0109? I know it's written in English but I'm afraid that I couldn't understand it.

    I have two favorites. My first is from Dale Carnegie:
    The second is a great one to use when someone asks you about your experience in a business. It came from a colleague when I used to sell real estate:

    It works great for doing business on the web!

    Nice quotes, shyflower. The real estate one reminds me of;
    Truly successful people are always learning.

    This is a great quote, and has a lot to do whats going on in the world today.

    Cyber Bullying Act for example. We are giving away our liberty of freespeech for temporary security for those that may get emotional hurt form something on the internet.

    Patriot Act another example, We have lost a lot of our freedom in exchange for temporary safety against terrorist. Witch now we see that the Patriot act is being used against kids in out own country.

    (The 16 year old, straight A kid that made a prank call, now labeled terrorist. Being held by the us government because of the Patriot Act witch took his 2nd amendment away. His mother cant even see him and they can keep him without a trail.)

    No fly list is another great example, if you look at how many people are on that list for no reason at all. No fly list takes away form out liberty for temporary security.
