- Time doesn’t fill me. I fill time.
- The People Around Me are the People I chose.
- I have never paid my dues.
- Experience is irrelevant. Accomplishments are everything.
- Failure is something I accomplish; it just doesn’t happen to me.
- Volunteers always win.
- As long as I’m paid well, it’s all good.
- People who pay me always have the right to tell me what to do.
- The extra mile is a vast, unpopulated wasteland.
