Ideas are like slippery fish. They seem to have a peculiar knack of
getting away from us. Because of this, the creative person always
has a pad and a pencil handy. When
he gets an idea, he writes it down. He knows that many
people have found their whole lives changed by a single great thought. By capturing ideas immediately, he doesn't risk forgetting them.
Earl Nightingale, Creative People Win

got to make them - not because I say so, but because old Father Time
will take care of you if you don't change.

Linda Corby, Zoom into Profit
As long as your resolution is something personal and something
that will improve your life, or make you feel better then it's a good
resolution. So don't worry if you don't think your idea is anything big
or grand, what matters is that it's positive and that it matters to you,
so there's no wrong thing you can do.
Jamie Andrews, New Year, Fresh Start
"An idea is not necessarily good because it is old, or necessarily bad
because it is new, but if an old idea works, then the weight of the evidence
is all in its favor. Ideas are of themselves extraordinarily valuable, but an
idea is just an idea. Almost any one can think up an idea. The thing that
counts is developing it into a practical product."
Henry Ford Words of Encouragement
