Great work is done by people
who are not afraid to be great.
No one ever attains very eminent success by simply doing what is required of him; it is the amount and excellence of what is over and above the required that determines the greatness of ultimate distinction.
-- Charles Kendall Adams
Excellence is not a destination; it is a continuous journey that never ends.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but a habit.
Commit yourself to quality from day one ... it's better to do nothing at all than to do something badly.
--Mark H. McCormack
