“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Design

“Good artists copy, Great artists steal”
Picassio
“When we build, let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight or present use alone — but such that our descendants will thank us for.”
John Ruskin
“The things that separates us from the high primate is that we are tool builders, we make things. We make things that change our lives and we make things that change the world. This is a long, and long lasting tradition. We shape our tools and tools shape us.”
Marshall McLuhan
“I think we all have an idea, something that we want to make for no other reason other than for it to exist. Something small, but meaningful. To make something. Things that nudge the world a little bit, in what we hope is the right direction. We get to put a dint in the universe — no matter how small or insignificant. That is a wondering thing.”
Wilson Milner

Life

“You have two ears and one mouth. Use them in proportion”

“Death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”
Steve Jobs

Ambition

“And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
Steve Jobs
“Never underestimate the power of a small group of people to change the world. In fact, it is the only way it ever has.”
Margaret Mead
“The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise.”
Margaret Mead
“Passion is the emotional fuel that drives your vision. It’s what you hold onto when your ideas are challenged and people turn you down, when you are rejected by experts and the people cloest to you. It’s the fuel that keeps you going, working hard, giving more than you can possibly give when there is simply no validation of your dream. Passions are irresistible. If you’re paying attention to your life at all, the things you are passionate about won’t leave you alone. They’re the ideas, hope and possibilities your mind gravitates to, the things you focus all your time, attention and dreams upon and nothing else but doing these things truly feels right.”
Bill Stricklan

Values

“Laws control the lesser man, right controls the greater.”
Chinese Proverb
“I was angered, for I had no shoes. Then I met a man who had no feet.”
Chinese Proverb
“The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise.”
