leave a comment »

Quotes I’ve heard over the last few months that have made me pause and reflect:

  • “Rights aren’t granted by the government.  They are guaranteed by the government.”
  • “With liberty comes vulnerability. That isn’t what makes us weak, it’s what makes us strong.”
  • “Rights of the minority can never be voted away by the majority.”

– Edward Snowden via Google Hangout at Summit at Sea

  • “Moore’s law is creating Moore’s outlaws”

-Marc Goodman, founder of the Future Crimes Institute, in reference to the proliferation of technology for everyone

  • “Nobody can buy fitness.  It is the one thing that requires perseverance and dedication.”

-David Petraeus

  • “Success breeds complacency.  You must keep intellectual humility and act like every deal is your first deal.”
  • “Perseverance is genius in disguise.”

-Barry Sternlicht, former CEO of Starwood Hotels 

  • “Hospitality is when you feel they are on your side.”

-Danny Meyer, CEO Union Square Hospitality Group (Shake Shack, etc)
