Thoughts on Excellence
Saturday, October 10, 2009
"We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."
"The secret of joy in work is contained in one word--excellence."
Pearl S. Buck
"The rareness of excellence should not be made into an excuse
for the failure to recognize it."
"The study of what is excellent is food for the mind and body."
Leonardo da Vinci
"There's no such thing as perfection.
But, in striving for perfection, we can achieve excellence."
"The pursuit of excellence is less profitable than
the pursuit of bigness, but it can be more satisfying."
"There is no excellence without difficulty."
"If you want to achieve excellence, you can get there today.
As of this second, quit doing less-than-excellent work.
Thomas J. Watson
