My good friend Nadia Allaudin of Merrill Lynch sent along these fabulous, motivational quotes. I think you'll like them:
"I dream of men who take the next step instead of worrying about the next thousand steps."
- Theodore Roosevelt
"Get bored with your past, it's over!"
- Caroline Myss
"Don't listen to those who say, 'You're taking too big a chance.' Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor, and it would surely be rubbed out by today. Most important, don't listen when the little voice of fear inside you rears its ugly head and says. 'They're all smarter than you out there. They're more talented, they're taller, blonder, prettier, luckier, and they have connections. I firmly believe that if you follow a path that interests you, not to the exclusion of love, sensitivity, and cooperation with others, but with the strength of conviction that you can move others by your own efforts, and do not make success or failure the criteria by which you live, the chances are you'll be a person worthy of your own respect."
- Neil Simon
