“Too many times we try to do whatever everyone else thinks is good for us. We don’t do what we simply want to do. We don’t love what we simply want to love.” -James Altucher

“But the only way to get better in something you love is to get through the worst moments which are inevitable.” -James Altucher

“If your happiness requires other people to behave the way you want them to behave, then what are the chances you’re going to stay happy in your life?  You’d have to limit yourself to a small number of humans… who you can control, which is not love.” -Tony Robbins

“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

“Banks love reverse mortgages. They promote them for all kinds of needs.” -Mark Ford      Sounds to me like a good reason to second guess any thoughts of using them.
