Hi Will,
I especially like Bennet Cerf's quote.  I have to take exception to Henry Ford's quote, though. It's easy for entrepreneurs to be consumed by their work, but life balance is so important.

Excellent selection of quotes, Will. And while I'm usually a fan of Henry Ford's sayings, this one does not resonate with me. I believe we all need to get away from our work or we burn out.

I don't think I have ever truly loved what I did for work, it has always felt like work.  I think I will really love retirement, haha.
