  2. “Ever climbing, ever reaching. Ever striving, ever surpassing. Ever gaining, ever accumulating. For leaders this alone are ways to attain. And so for fifty years or more they repeat the pattern until stopped by circumstances, by disillusion, or by death.”

  4. “A leader is best when people barely know he exists, not so good when people obey and acclaim him, worse when they despise him. But of a good leader who talks little when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: We did it ourselves.”
    ~ Lao Tzu, 老子

  5. “Every now and then go away, have little relaxation; for when you come back to your work, your judgment will be surer. To remain constantly at work will cause you to lose power of judgment. When you go some distance away, then your work appears smaller, and more of it can be taken in at glance, so a lack of harmony or proportion is more readily seen.”

  6. “The sage does not hoard. The more he helps others, the more he benefits himself, The more he gives to others, the more he gets himself. The Way of Heaven does one good but never does one harm. The Way of the sage is to act but not to compete.”
    ~ Lao Tzu, 老子

  8. “What I find interesting and wonderful about Greg’s (Smallman) )approach, is that he starts from admiring the traditonal – not knocking it, but wanting to know if it’s possible to improve it in some way. He has quite clearly done that for me. Basically, he is making the guitar a more musical instrument.”
    ~ John Williams in 1993, Classical Guitarist, Australia

  9. Picasso once said: “Good artists copy; great artists steal.”Going beyond imitation, not reinventing the wheel.

  10. “Every man’s work, whether it be literature or music or pictures or anything else, is always a portrait of himself, and the more he tries to conceal himself the more clearly will his character appear in spite of him.”
    ~ Samuel Butler, Dec 1835 – Jun 1902, a novelist

Consolidation of my favorite quotes. There are inspiring, timeless and motivational.

There were from my older posts, where I’m trying to list it out in 3 installations.

Making as a re-post, while those singular post will be deleted.

This blog and the rest of them are undergoing an ‘overhaul’ of categories and tags.

Refining them by narrowing into primary and secondary topics, and omitting those arbitrary and irrelevant categories.
