it's not inspirational nor is it motivational, but I love it..... Warren Buffett's quote...." when the tide is out, those who are swimming naked are fully exposed"...... that can be applied to many scenarios, especially in the real estate business.....

Today my "Quote of the day" is in my blog "QUESTION?"

"Everyone one has a plan till they get hit in the face" 

Does not make sense until the source is known then all the overcoming adversity quotes surface.

NOTE: I have no admiration or respect for the one quoted.

I like a lot of Ben Franklin quotes,

"Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”
Benjamin Franklin

And while this one is not inspriational it may be motivational the next time one is voting or pondering many many issues that come up on a regular basis, "

“Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”

Also a Ben Franklin quote.
