Who said it…

  • “What we do, we do well.  What we don’t do well, we don’t do at all.” –Dr. Thomas F. Freeman, Texas Southern University Debate Team Coach
  • “In reality, the people who live best tie themselves down. They don’t ask: What cool thing can I do next? They ask: What is my responsibility here? They respond to some problem or get called out of themselves by a deep love. By planting themselves in one neighborhood, one organization or one mission, they earn trust. They have the freedom to make a lasting difference. It’s the chains we choose that set us free.”         –Author David Brooks
  • “Success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.” -Winston Churchill
  • “We’re all equal before a wave.” –Laird Hamilton
  • “Choices are the puzzle pieces of life, so choose…oh yeah!” –Mister Brown
  • “It’s time to turn it over to women!  Men have had their chance to run the world and look where we are!” -Lenny Kravitz
  • “Rich is an expansion of your soul.  Wealth is what you have as a result of things you’ve done but to be rich means that you have qualities, you have experiences, you have an expanded heart.” -Gail Miller



  • Tyler actually has three daughters, not two.
