With the bad economic news dominating the mass media these days, with so many people fearful, behaving like a turtle and hiding in their shells, I thought I would share some of my favorite quotes for your day:

To be uncertain is to be uncomfortable; but to be certain is to be ridiculous.

Unknown Author/Chinese Proverb

I have no special talents.  I am only passionately curious.

Albert Einstein

Reason’s biological function is to preserve and promote life and to postpone its extinction as long as possible.  Thinking and acting are not contrary to nature; they are, rather, the foremost features of man’s nature.

Ludwig Van Mises

There are risks and costs to a program of action. But there are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.

John F. Kennedy

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.

Anais Nin

Most battles are won before they are ever fought.

General George S. Patton

Although this might seem like a paradox, all exact science is dominated by the idea of approximation.

Bertrand Russell

Success and happiness–the conditions needed to thrive on this earth–are reflections of the choices we make.

Brett N. Steenbarger

I model human excellence.

Charles Faulkner
