When I was in college, I had post-it notes all over my wall. Each note contained a quote that I had heard and thought powerful. Every time I would take my pen to the paper, I felt that I was engraving the wisdom into me. I realize how powerful it is to model, especially by remembering the great words that were once captured in the past. One day I had began to compile these notes into a document, though I never finished. Part of that document is what I present to you below. This stuff is powerful. Don’t just breeze through these quotes, you’ll be wasting your time. Read them slowly, pause, absorb, and embrace; then move to the next.
