Quotes

“Never never never give up.” — Winston Churchill
“The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.” — H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit” — Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC) Greek Philosopher
