One of the fondest memories of my Granddad Nelson was trading quotes regularly over email. Sadly I lost the email archive when I went on my mission, but it has continued to be an interest of mine. I hope you enjoy my collection of quotes. A bit of everything from religion to politics to leadership.

When you win, say nothing. When you lose, say less.

It is easy to sit up and take notice, What is difficult is getting up and taking action.

One cannot and must not try to erase the past merely because it does not fit the present.

Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off his goal.

No matter how angry you get, restrict your anger to the incident that provoked it.

There is nothing noble about being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.
