Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.

The average person puts only 25% of his energy and ability into his work. The world takes off its hat to those who put in more than 50% of their capacity, and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100%.
Marathon running, like golf, is a game for players, not winners. That is why Callaway sells golf clubs and Nike sells running shoes.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
