Words to Live By

I've always been a fan of quotes. I suppose it's because I spent 14 years as a daily newspaper reporter in California in the 80s, 90s and 00s. (B.I. -- Before the Internet). Who knew it was a golden era of journalism?

You'll see them sprinkled around the Mariani Creative website. Here, without any further delay, are some of my favorite words to live by:

"It's the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter." ~ Marlene Deitrich (Bonus points if you can spot Marlene's grammar error.)

“A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.” ~ Nelson Mandela

"Creativity is the answer. I always prefer the creative solution to the expensive solution." ~ Keenen Ivory Wayans "Imagination is greater than knowledge." ~ Albert Einstein

"A hunch is creativity trying to tell you something." ~ Frank Capra

"Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt

“You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” ~ Maya Angelou

“Creativity is intelligence having fun.” ~ Albert Einstein

"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now." ~ Chinese Proverb

"Fall down seven times, get up eight." ~ Japanese Proverb
