Memorial Day Quotes

The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example. 
– Benjamin Disraeli

They are dead; but they live in each Patriot’s breast, And their names are engraven on honor’s bright crest.
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
 

These heroes are dead.  They died for liberty – they died for us.  They are at rest.  They sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, the tearful willows, and the embracing vines.  They sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in the windowless Place of Rest.  Earth may run red with other wars – they are at peace.  In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death.  I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead:  cheers for the living; tears for the dead. 
– Robert G. Ingersoll

Guy Kawasaki Quotes

From his article on The Nine Biggest Myths of the Workplace

You need a good resume.

Only ten percent of jobs come from sending a blind resume. Most people get jobs by leveraging their network. Once you have a connection, the person looks at your resume to make sure there are no red flags. So you need a competent resume and an excellent network. This means you should stop stressing about which verb to use on the second line of your third job. Go talk to someone instead.
– Guy Kawasaki / Penelop Trunk

People with good networks are good at networking.

Just be nice, take genuine interest in the people you meet, and keep in touch with people you like. This will create a group of people who are invested in helping you because they know you and appreciate you. Use LinkedIn to leverage those peoples’ networks, and you just got yourself a very strong network by simply hanging out with the people you like.
