What is your favourite quote?
“Shoe Dog” by Phil Knight – “When you make something, when you improve something, when you deliver something, when you add some new thing or service to the lives of strangers, making them happier, or healthier, or safer, or better, when you do it all crisply and efficiently, smartly, the way everything should be done, but seldom is, you’re participating more fully in the whole grand human drama.”
