Some quotes I hope may resonate with you.

"Hey! It's Enrico Palazzo!" - Anonymous Fan 

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

"First generation millionaires give us libraries, second generation millionaires give us themselves."- Gary Wills

"Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done." - Robert A. Heinlein

"You despise in others the worst parts of yourself." - Shane Parrish


  1. The Collin's quote is just a A wordier explanation of why envy is a sin. 

  2. The more you look at quotes that give wisdom the more you notice that there are always similar quotes with similar wisdom from an earlier period.

    Perhaps the only true original quote of the list is the one about Enrico Palazzo. :)

  3. I like the reference to Enrico Palazzo!
