my favourite quote

I was recently asked to for my favourite quote and it took me a while to remember this one. Recording it here for quick reference!

“One must never miss an opportunity of quoting things by others which are always more interesting than those one thinks up oneself.”

— Proust

what you need to understand is…

“What you need to understand is that the business exists to flush you out – to find the thing you can do in your 20s, to squeeze all the energy and creativity out of you while your young and then look for an even younger person who can do the same thing. What I learned is: don’t let them do it. Keep coming back with something different. Avoid being pigeonholed, because then you won’t be “the young Harry” or “the ageing Harry” or “whatever happened to Harry?””

~ Harry Shearer

life should not be a journey to the grave…

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”

~ Hunter S. Thompson
