Core Values Reflected 

We are inspired by the statesmen, scientists, researchers, authors and other illuminaries of the past and present. We pay tribute to them by placing some of their sayings and beliefs on our home page. We hope these inspire you as much as they have inspired us.

--James P. Womack

L'adversité fait des hommes, et la prospérité fait des monstres.
Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters.

--Victor Hugo

The best way to predict your future is to create it.

--Peter Drucker

To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.

--Winston Churchill
