    Here’s a quote I wasn’t familiar with and it was insightful! Thanks for posting. At first I thought, “Oh, it’s one of those lazy posts (the type of article you write when you are extremely busy)” But you fooled me 🙂 You put a lot of thought into this blog; I’ll have to visit it more frequently. – Trent

      Dear Trent,

      Many thanks for the comment. I confess that the quotes serve several purposes. They allow me to get a post up quick with relatively little effort. They provide a nice break for readers as there is not much to read. And, I hope that they get readers to reflect as a good quote is a solid piece of wisdom distilled to its essence.

    That is the truest statement. Make the talk positive and add a few compliments and they will remember you.
