A couple of quotes to pass along. The first courtesy of Adam Curry:

qotd may 28. Thomas A. Edison: “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” [Adam Curry: Adam Curry’s Weblog]

“The story–from ‘Rumpelstiltskin’ to ‘War and Peace’–is one of the basic tools invented by the human mind, for the purpose of gaining understanding. There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories.” – Ursula K. LeGuin, 1979
