"Unbroken" should be required reading in every high school history class. Hillenbrand shares

“Perfection is not a destination; it's a never-ending process...Enjoy!”
Jim Bouchard, Think Like a Black Belt

“Il nous faut de l'audace, encore de l'audace, toujours de l'audace!"

(We must dare, and dare again, and go on daring!)

[Assemblée legislative, Paris; Sept. 2, 1792]”
Georges Jacques Danton

“Perfection is not a destination; it's a never-ending process...Enjoy!”
Jim Bouchard, Think Like a Black Belt

“Sit in a room and read--and read and read. And read the right books by the right people. Your mind is brought onto that level, and you have a nice, mild, slow-burning rapture all the time.”
Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

“Go to the people. Live with them. Learn from them. Love them. Start
with what they know. Build with what they have. But with the best
leaders, when the work is done, the task accomplished, the people will
say 'We have done this ourselves.”
Lao Tzu

“Service is providing what's wanted, not what I'd like to give.”
Brian Klemmer, The Compassionate Samurai: Being Extraordinary in an Ordinary World
