Well, we can’t stand around here doing nothing, people will think we’re workers.
Few people who do business well do nothing else.
Too much work and too much energy kill a man just as effectively as too much assorted vice or too much drink.
Work was like cats were supposed to be; if you disliked and feared it and tried to keep out of its way, it knew at once and sought you out.

Behind every successful man there stands an amazed woman.
To be successful you have to be lucky, or a little mad or very talented, or to find yourself in a rapid-growth field.
Edward de Bono
All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure.
