My favorite quotes:
Success is not forever, and failure isn't fatal.
Nothing stays the same.
A mediocre person tells. A good person explains. A superior person demonstrates. A great person inspires others to see for themselves!
I created ItSuitsYou for one reason and one reason only, to help men get back on their feet and become productive contributors to our society.
Its nice to be important, but its more important to be nice...
