Bill Morris: A couple of great (old) quotes ...

A couple of great (old) quotes ...

 "Diligence is the mother of good luck."  -- Benjamin Franklin

"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."                           -- Thomas Edison

Coming from the corporate world to the real estate business years ago I asked a broker who he considered his competition.  Instead of a long discussion of segmentation and market share, he answered simply, "The agents who get out of bed and go to work in the morning instead of waiting for the phone to ring."

So true ....

Bill, I noticed that there was a Zig Ziglar book of quotes for sale, at SAM's Club today.  I was running late, so, I didn't have time to grab it, but, I may go back for that one.  I love Zig's saying, Automobile University.  Playing tapes and cd's in your car:)  LOL!

It's a Good Life,
