Not too often though." ~ Warren Buffet, Business Magnate and Investor (pg. 164)

Tom Shadyac 

Tom Shadyac 

"Newton's third law [of motion] or karma - however each of us chooses to name it - is something I've been aware of for years. I call it cause and effect: The energy that you put into the world comes back. In other words, the fruit is in the seed. You can't sow an apple seed and expect to get an avocado tree. The consequences of your life are sown in what you do and how you behave." ~ Tom Shadyac, Film Director (pg. 118)


"When you do a loving thing when you put out positive energy, you feel happy. This is how human beings are wired. So the goal of karma - if there is a goal - is not to put out positive energy in order to get some positive energy back. The goal is to put out positive energy abnd feel positive about your life. That's where the work is. That's why the true revolution is a personal revolution." ~ Tom Shadyac, Film Director (pg. 120)

"So many times I have been told that it can't be done. Again and again, I've had to use every ounce of perseverance to make it happen." ~ Howard Schultz, Chairman and CEO of Starbucks (pg. 148)

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." ~ Mark Twain, Author (pg. 150)

Derek Jeter

Derek Jeter

"The path to your goal is not always going to be smooth. Obstacles will arise and problems will develop, but you have to remember what you're striving for...don't forget the big picture and don't let small mishaps or small failures stop you." ~ Derek Jeter, American Baseball Champion (pgs. 157-158)

Wolfgang Puck

Wolfgang Puck

"I learned more from the one restaurant that didn't work than from all the ones that were successes." ~ Wolfgang Puck, Restaurateur and Businessman (pg. 166)

J.K. Rowling

J K Rowling

"Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one arena where I truly belonged. I was set free, because my greatest fear had been realized, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter, and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life. " ~ J.K. Rowling, Author of the Harry Potter books (pg. 175)
