“All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.” -Galileo Galilei

“People love simple and preposterous lies. They much prefer them to the truth.  Truth is elusive.  Difficult to discover.  Infinitely nuanced.  Hard to hold on to.  Each tiny bit of truth comes at a high price….  Nor does truth make you feel good. Like a magnifying mirror, it shows blemishes.  You squirm in your seat when you see it.  Often, you want to turn off the lights. 

Not so with myth.  It comes right over to you, fawns over you, airbrushes your photo, and Botoxes your face.  It flatters you with weak light and strong angles.  It pretends you are the noble master and it is merely the humble slave… willing to do your bidding.” -Bill Bonner

“We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success.  We often discover what will do by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery.” -Samuel Smiles

“There is no greater financial cliché than the poor man who builds a fortune only to discover that he lost everything that was really important to him….  You have to create goals that mesh with the person you truly want to be.” -Mark Ford
