I love quotes, for me they are learnings passed forward from those that glimpsed brilliance, maybe I’ll collect some of my favorites here, maybe I won’t, here’s a quote for 23rd June 2012 and the future’s so bright I godda wear shades http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpR4qt8joxc
To be wheely good at something, YOU need to know YOUR weaknesses, maximise YOUR strengths and defend YOUR weaknesses.
“Wheely esse bonum aliquid, necesse est, ut cognoscat quæ circa vos infirmitatibus maximize vestra uires atque infirmitatibus defendere.”
There was an engineer who had an exceptional gift for fixing all things mechanical. After serving his company loyally for over 30 years, he happily retired. Several years later the company contacted him regarding a seemingly impossible problem they were having with one of their multimillion-dollar machines. They had tried everything and everyone else to get the machine to work but to no avail. In desperation, they called on the retired engineer who had solved so many of their problems in the past. The engineer reluctantly took the challenge. He spent a day studying the huge machine. At the end of the day, he marked a small “x” in chalk on a particular component of the machine and stated, “This is where your problem is”. The part was replaced and the machine worked perfectly again.
The company received a bill for $50,000 from the engineer for his service. They demanded an itemized accounting of his charges. The engineer responded briefly:
One chalk mark...................................$1.00 Knowing where to put it.....................$49,999.00
It was paid in full and the engineer retired again in peace.
Unum creta marcam …………………………….. $ 1.00
Scire autem ubi posuerunt ………………… $ 49,999.00
Fugit iterum in ingeniarius persolutis et erat pax .”

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while DARING GREATLY so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.
“Is est qui non comites, non offendit, qui aut fortem indicat actorem rerum melius geri potuerit. Cuius laus est in ipso homine, arena pulvis cuius facies foeda atque sudore ac sanguine, qui nititur fortitudinem errat desit qui semel et iterum, qui studiis multum scit magno ueniebat; ipse insumit digna causa, qui ad optimum maximum triumphi scit in finem factum, et ad extremum, si defecerit, non audacia certe cum mAXIME timidos locus eius qui nee unquam vinci an vicisse.
One of my Favorites – This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind… let it be something good.
“Novum initium diei. Quia vobis datum est hodie uti velis. Uti potest aut bonum perderet. Quia tu hodie, quam facitis: alternis dies vitae magna enim. Cras cum venit hodie in perpetuum; quod in loco sit … reliquissent tibi bonum.”
