Favorite quote:

“The ironic thing is so many people are afraid to be associated with the topic of failure and mistakes, yet the biggest failure is fear. And the more you’re afraid of making a mistake, the more static you’re going to become, the less risks you’ll take, and that’s really where the big failure comes in.”

—Laurence Weinzimmer
