Each day can be one of triumph if you keep up to your interests-feeding them as they feed you!" - George Matthew Adams

Everything happens quite involuntarily, as if in a tempestuous outburst of freedom, of absoluteness, of power and divinity." - Friedrich Nietzsche

You're growing as a person and people tend to treat you like you were 18 months ago, and it's really frustrating sometimes when you're growing up and you're more capable. It's the same thing with a company and the press. The press is going to have a lag time. The best thing we can do about the press is embrace them and do the best thing we can to educate them about our strategy. But to keep our eye on the prize, that is turning out some great products. the press and the stock prize will take care of themselves." - Steve Jobs
