“There are some things success is not. It’s not fame. It’s not money or power. Success is waking up in the morning so excited about what you have to do that you literally fly out the door.

It’s falling asleep at night knowing you did the best job you could. Success is joy and freedom and friendship. And success is love.”

C’est se coucher le soir en se disant qu’on a fait du mieux qu’on a pu. Réussir c’est connaître la joie, la liberté et l’amitié. Je dirais que réussir, c’est aimer.”
