It provides a ready source of information and motivation, providing a unique but on-going source of reflection and inspiration through maxims from people such as John Adair, Aristotle, Galileo, George Bernard Shaw, Sun Tzu, Muhammad Ali, Henry Ford, Cristiano Ronaldo, Clint Eastwood, Martin Luther King, William Shakespeare and John Wayne, to name only a few.
