Scott Galloway
“Expect that a certain amount of failure is out of your control, and recognize you may need to endure it or move on.”
Scott Galloway, The Four: The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google

L.C. Perry
“If we tell you even a fraction of our stories, will you still be able to look at us? Or will you only see the scars?”
L.C. Perry, Gold Shadow

Agatha Christie
“Oh! money! All the troubles in the world can be put down to money—or the lack of it.”
Agatha Christie, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd

Angie Thomas
“Right. Lack of opportunities," Daddy says. "Corporate America don't bring jobs to our communities, and they damn sure ain't quick to hire us. Then, shit, even if you do have a high school diploma, so many of the schools in our neighborhoods don't prepare us well enough. That's why when your momma talked about sending you and your brothers to Williamson, I agreed. Our schools don't get the resources to equip you like Williamson does. It's easier to find some crack that it is the find a good school around here.
"Now, think 'bout this," he says. "How did the drugs even get in our neighborhood? This is a multibillion-dollar industry we talking 'bout, baby. That shit is flown into our communities, but I don't know anybody with a private jet. Do you?"
"Exactly. Drugs come from somewhere, and they're destroying our community," he says. "You got folks like Brenda, who think they need them survive, and then you got the Khalils, who think they need to sell them to survive. The Brendas can't get jobs unless they're clean, and they can't pay for rehab unless they got jobs. When the Khalils get arrested for selling drugs, they either spend most of their life in prison, another billion-dollar industry, or they have a hard time getting a real job and probably start selling drugs again. That's the hate they're giving us, baby, a system designed against us. That's Thug Life.”
Angie Thomas, The Hate U Give

Israelmore Ayivor
“Most times, the way isn’t clear, but you want to start anyway. It is in starting with the first step that other steps become clearer.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Leaders' Frontpage: Leadership Insights from 21 Martin Luther King Jr. Thoughts
