Target Quotations

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

Cash - in savings accounts, short-term CDs or money market deposits - is great for an emergency fund. But to fulfill a long-term investment goal like funding your retirement, consider buying stocks. The more distant your financial target, the longer inflation will gnaw at the purchasing power of your money.
Suze Orman

My life is like a speeding bullet that just hasn't hit the target yet.
Kid Cudi

I think you've got good people and bad people in everything you do. If you start making a big deal of it, then it's a problem. It's like in life. We've got bad doctors and lawyers. We've got bad priests! We don't target every priest and say he's bad. You have to go to church and you have to go see some doctors. Some people have to be good.
Master P

Gun control means being able to hit your target. If I have a 'hot button' issue, this is definitely it. Don't even think about taking my guns. My rights are not negotiable, and I am totally unwilling to compromise when it comes to the Second Amendment.
Michael Badnarik
