“Every successful person I know has humility at their core. When you become more secure in yourself and who you are, you become more humble.” -Daniel Rubenstein

“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
