Quote of the day.

This is my favorite quote of all time. Randy Pausch was a teacher at Carnegie Mellon and was diagnosed pancreatic cancer, he was told he only had six months to live. Randy gave his "Last Lecture" to a group of students and his colleagues about how to live out your childhood dreams. They turned his lecture into a book and it is one of the most motivational books you'll ever read. Definitely check it out. 


"Brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don't want something badly enough. They are there to keep out the other people." 
-Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

Oh My Goodness! Love this quote and this man! His lecture was amazing. I was lucky enough to see him when he gave his lecture on Oprah a year or two ago. I was so blessed and moved by his words of wisdom.

That's so awesome that you saw him. I read his book every few months just to stay grounded and focused. Truly and amazing man.
