Charles Dickens

“If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have the time to do it over?”

John Wooden

Sherman Alexie

“The simple rule to abide by and become excellent is that “Don’t see what you have achieved yesterday with the same pleasure eyes you used to see it when it was done by you”. Look forward and do better than you did earlier!”
