The Process

"Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he? Remember, George: no man is a failure who has friends."

Clarence Oddbody – Guardian Angel

"If you constantly keep your eye on the profit, your going to skimp on the product. But if you focus on making really great products, then the profits will follow."

Steve Jobs – Founder Apple Inc.

"My first day in Chicago, September 4, 1983. I set foot in this city, and just walking down the street, it was like roots, like the motherland. I knew I belonged here."

Oprah Winfrey – CEO of Harpo Productions & OWN
