Forbes Book of Quotations

I love reading. As one of lifes little ironies, I work for book company and I STILL got books for Christmas gifts! One of those gifts was The Forbes Book of Business Quotations: 14,173 Thoughts on the Business of Life. I’m pretty excited about it, so I thought I’d share the following quote with you from the business section to start out 2008. It’s by George Matthew Adams

There should be no age limits placed on ambition, alertness, creativeness, or in fact on anything that may mark the mental or spiritual progress of any human being…There is an old saying, Nothing ventured nothing gained. Obviously true, but on the other hand, even though many of our ventures come to no profitable end, the very fact that we ventured should be to our credit. People who stand still, or just watch from the sidelines of life, only partly live. To venture, and only to get fun out of it, has a constructive angle to it. Keep venturing and you’ll never grow dull!

To an year of venturing and ambition!
