It is almost impossible to find the right words to express how enthusiastic I am to have my first book published. It is the fulfillment of a long overdue dream of becoming an author, which, I confess, wasn't an easy task typing this entire book with just one finger. With this book, I hope to create a legacy that will be passed on to my children and my children's children for many generations. In compiling this anthology of quotes, my aim is to educate, entertain, and inspire the reader to go the distance, and beyond . . . because this book is a distillation of the wisdom that has allowed me to journey safely and successfully along life's pathway. My sincere desire is that you, too, will come to experience a similar gratification and excitement as you make your journey through life.
