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.
