    A customer gave us a quote that they wanted to put on their wall last week. They of course gave it to one of my guys on a sliver of paper......2 days on my desk and this sliver of paper is no where to be seen. It was clipped to a work order which still has a clip on it. ANYWAYS - the customer was pretty clear when it was picked up that it was his only copy of it, our mistake for not copying it for him on site......we need to figure it out - it went something like: victories won or achieved as quickly as the sunrise.....something about the ocean?>

    after that my mind is blank....the moral of the quote was - if you achieve something too quickly it will go away, but if you take your time....

    Lost — Yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered, for they are gone forever.

    the worst part is, this thing was squished onto the top of a post it note, just on the sticky part. so it most likely stuck to something and is sitting in the county dump

    To perceive victory when it is known to all is not really skilful… It does not take much strength to lift a hair, it does not take sharp eyes to see the sun and moon, it does not take sharp ears to hear the thunderclap
