Quote of the Day

Make Things Happen!

I Couldn't Wait for Success, so I went ahead without it. ~Jonathan Winters

Jonathan Winters, was an American comedian and actor  who was born in 1925, and passed away on this day in 2013. I love this quote!  Another quote he is famous for says "If your ship doesn't come in, swim out to it". Both sound like he is saying - Just get out and start doing what you want to do in your life! Take an action step, and just do what you love and make things happen!
