—Guy Kawasaki 

Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t,
so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.

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 

No one is going to know or care about your failures, and neither should you.

It is far better to be exhausted from success than to be rested from failure.
—Mary Kay Ash
