    Money isn't the most important thing in life, but it's reasonably close to oxygen on the "gotta have it" scale.
    Zig Ziglar

    When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.'
    It is our choices, that show what we really are, far more than our abilities.
