"Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal: my strength lies solely in my tenacity." Louis Pasteur

"Good listeners generally make more sales than good talkers." B. C. Holwick

"Success is never final and Failure never fatal. It's courage that counts." George Tilton

Today's lead quotation was noticed in New Glarus, Wisconsin. Yesterday we made our way south to Little Switzerland had a great lunch at the New Glarus Hotel and stopped by the New Glarus Brewing Company for a beer tasting. Noticed the great Pasteur quote on the brewhouse wall high above the copper kettles. My thanks to Deb & Daniel Carey (owners of the New Glarus Brewing Company) for the great brew and for the inspiration.
