Quote of the day

#1 by ptcscrutiny » Thu Mar 27, 2014 06:51

I'll try and post a quote daily on this topic, starting today.

=========================================

Your chances of success are directly proportional to the degree of pleasure you desire from what you do.
If you are in a job you hate, face the fact squarely and get out.

Quote on Perseverance:

Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.

-- Winston Churchill

"Each time a new technology comes along, new designers make the same horrible mistakes as their predecessors. Technologists are not noted for learning from the errors of the past. They look forward, not behind, so they repeat the same problems over and over again."
