Quote of the Day
Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.
William Butler Yeats
I prioritize in life. I like to work, I do TV shows, I do a lot of Iron Man training. I enjoy kicking back on a good night and drinking wine until I go to bed, and having fun with my friends. You just have to make time for it and keep it balanced.

Leonardo da Vinci

Jan Peter Balkenende
