    Quotes

    The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.
    A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.
    Learning is like rowing upstream: not to advance is to drop back.
    A superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.
    I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.
