Memorable Quotes:

“Dwight Eisenhower was also a world-class bridge player. The key thing about being good at those kinds of games is that you have to know, or believe you know, how to read your enemy. His motto that he often said was, “Plans are worthless, but planning is everything.”

“Good judgement seeks balance and progress; lack of it eventually finds imbalance and frustration.”

“Get to know your parents. You never know when they’ll be gone for good. Be nice to your siblings. They’re your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.”
