Skip Quotations

I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things... I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind.
Leo Buscaglia

The best way to skip some levels and to increase the odds of survival is to learn from others who have already played the game.
Vivek Wadhwa

James D. Watson
