...the most important tool a technician uses is--an eraser.
Diamonds are polished by grit, man by adversity,
the civilizations rise and fall with the Sun spots,
and the markets will always repeat themselves
directly or inversly relative to the total interaction of the sun, the moon, and the earth,...........every four lunar months!!
Can't resist posting this one - although it's not exactly just one line (read it on Lance Beggs's newsletter, thanks to him):
"Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you want to be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that!"
Rocky Balboa, quoted from Rocky movie.
You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.
