“To succeed and have a happy life, you need common sense, a commitment to hard work and the courage to go your own way. Interest is not enough— you must be passionate about what you do. I was fortunate to find a job I loved and if you find a job you love, you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”
- Robert G. Mondavi
“The measure of achievement is not winning awards. It’s doing something that you appreciate, something you believe is worthwhile. I think of my strawberry souffle. I did that at least twenty-eight times before I finally conquered it.”
