Hit Quotations

Aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit a star.
W. Clement Stone

Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see. - Arthur Schopenhauer
Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see.
Arthur Schopenhauer

If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.
Winston Churchill

There are horrible people who, instead of solving a problem, tangle it up and make it harder to solve for anyone who wants to deal with it. Whoever does not know how to hit the nail on the head should be asked not to hit it at all.
Friedrich Nietzsche

I think privacy is valuable. You don't have to share everything, and it's healthy to occasionally hit the pause button and ask yourself if you're oversharing. But at the end of the day, if you're not doing anything wrong, you don't have anything to hide.
Ashton Kutcher
