The largest property may be wrested from a child, but virtue will stand by him to the last.”

  1. Love some of the quotes here... nice compilation work George!

    1. Thanks. I try to motivate myself to manage the impossible and reach my financial independence in the next two years, if i can maintain some crazy level of work and hustle. In theory is a huge challenge, but i hope to do it while i am improving my diet, sleep and exercise level. Nothing less than the impossible for us. If we do not dream big, then who?
