Longer Version:

There's a certain delusional quality that all successful people have to have.  You have to believe that something different than what has happened for the last 50 million years of history -- you have to believe that something different can happen.

























































































Longer Version:

Longer Version:

Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity Kitai. Do not misunderstand me, danger is very real, but fear is a choice.




































Longer Version:
