~Wednesday's Words of Wisdom: In Memory of Steve Jobs~


"Former First Lady Nancy Reagan recounts a story about the genius of the Greatest Generation. 

“Once, at the University of California, a student got up to say that it was impossible for people of Ronald Reagan’s generation to understand the next generation of young people. 

‘You grew up in a different world,’ the student said. ‘Today we have television, jet planes, space travel, nuclear energy, computers…’"

“When the student paused for breath, Ronnie said: ‘You’re right. We didn’t have those things when we were young. We invented them.’” ***

"Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected."-Steve Jobs

"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower."- Steve Jobs

" Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing."- Abraham Lincoln

"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my own imagination."- Albert Einstein

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex. It takes a touch of genius---and a lot of courage, to move in the opposite direction." -Albert Einstein

" Manage your own time, or others will do it for you."- Harvey Mackay

"Real winners keep moving the finish line."- Harvey Mackay

"The great use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it."-William James
