I do agree that there should've been more order to the quotes, but the quotes themselves are pretty good. One of my favorites was "As your inspiration sharpens, your pencil dulls."

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go out and do it. The world needs people who are alive."

i thought this was only okay. it could have been so much better if there had been an order to the quotes rather than just random. if there is an order, i can't see it. not trying to be mean, believe me.
