Paul McGee - The SUMO guy

When you stop learning, you stop living. Engage or exist. It's your call.


I know that I know nothing
True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing.
And in knowing that you know nothing, that makes you the smartest of all.
The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance.

Benjamin Franklin

An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.


Live as if you will die tomorrow but learn as if you will live forever

Leonardo Da Vinci

Learning never exhausts the mind.
The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.
The truth of things is the chief nutriment of superior intellects.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication
He who loves practice without theory is like the sailor who boards ship without a rudder and compass and never knows where he may cast.

Isaac Newton

If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

Randy Pausch

Trovate la passione e seguitela. Non troverete la passione nelle cose, né nel denaro, perchè più cose e più denaro avete, più userete queste cose come metro per guardarvi attorno e vedere che c'è sempre qualcuno che ne ha di più. Quindi la passione deve arrivare da qualcosa che vi alimenta dentro.

Donald Trump

If you don't have passion, you have no energy, and if you don't have energy, you have nothing

Albert Einstein

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough

Steve Jobs

You've got to find what you love. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle

The Golden Rule

One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself

From "Getting things done" - David Allen

This constant, unproductive preoccupation with all the things we have to do is the single largest consumer of time and energy.

Napoleon Hill

A goal is a dream with a deadline.
Your only real limitation is the one you set up in your own mind.

Kent Beck

There are no shortcuts to deep understanding.

Daniel J. Boorstin

The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance - it is the illusion of knowledge.

Winston Churchill

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

Paulo Coelho

There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.

Charles Buxton

You must never find time for anything, if you want time you must make it.

Jordan Belfort

The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it.
