Francis of Assisi
You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.
I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I'm out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
