Something I Believe In

"If you are afraid to try something until you are perfect certain that everything's going to work about it, then by the time you do it, somebody else will have done it as well, so if you are going to be an innovator, you have to be willing to take some risk." 

-Kenneth Dunn

"We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained." 

- Madame Curie

"Approach each new problem not with a view of finding what you hope will be there, but to get the truth, the realities that must be grappled with. You may not like what you find. In that case you are entitled to try to change it. But do not deceive yourself as to what you do find to be the facts of the situation."  

- Bernard M. Baruch
