"Money is always on its way somewhere. What you do with it while it is in your keeping and the direction you send it in say much about you. Your treatment of and respect for money, how you make it, and how you spend it, reflect your character."
"When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life now that I am old I know that it is."Gary Ryan Blair on Oscar Wilde
"A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money."Gary Ryan Blair on John Ruskin
"Money has never made man happy, nor will it, there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants."Gary Ryan Blair on Benjamin Franklin
"The lack of money is the root of all evil."Gary Ryan Blair on Mark Twain
"Honesty is the best policy - when there is money in it."Gary Ryan Blair on Mark Twain

"Creative risk taking is essential to success in any goal where the stakes are high. Thoughtless risks are destructive, of course, but perhaps even more wasteful is thoughtless caution which prompts inaction and promotes failure to seize opportunity."
"Discipline is based on pride, on meticulous attention to details, and on mutual respect and confidence. Discipline must be a habit so ingrained that it is stronger than the excitement of the goal or the fear of failure."
"Thoughtless risks are destructive, of course, but perhaps even more wasteful is thoughtless caution which prompts inaction and promotes failure to seize opportunity."
