Via Carmine Coyote, from Srikumar Rao’s “Are You Ready to Succeed? Unconventional Strategies to Achieving Personal Mastery in Business and Life, comes this quote by Woodrow Wilson:
We are not here merely to earn a living and to create value for our shareholders. We are here to enrich the world and make it a finer place to live. We will impoverish ourselves if we fail to do so.
We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who hope that their dreams will come true.
