FAVOURITE QUOTE:
Almost anything by Churchill (some should be left in the past), my favourite is:
“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
GREATEST LESSON(S) IN BUSINESS:
Related to another Churchill quote:
“It is not enough that we do our best; sometimes we must do what is required.”
WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT CUB:
To meet like minded people, to share and learn without strings.
