Wisdom

“Wisdom is knowing what to do next; virtue is doing it.”

Success

“There’s an art and science to success. The art is in the way a person looks, communicates, speaks, writes, and dresses. And that has to go with the science, which is competency – reading, study, performance. The one without the other makes you incomplete.”

Health

“He who has health has hope, and he who has hope has everything.”
