“How does one become a butterfly?” she asked pensively.  

“You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.”   

Trina Paulus

“My company mascot is the bumblebee.

Because of its tiny wings and heavy body, aerodynamically

the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly.

But the bumblebee doesn’t know that, so it flies anyway.” 

Mary Kay Ash

It all comes down to what we believe.  

Whatever you think you can do or believe you can do, begin it. 

Action has magic, grace and power in it.”   

Goethe
