I don't think of work as work and play as play . It's all living.

David Gurteen's comments: I've said this so many times myself but not quite so eloquently.

Quotations are extremely effective at capturing and concisely communicating thoughts and ideas. They can be inspirational but more importantly quotations can help us reveal and assess the assumptions, values and beliefs that underlie the ways in which we perceive the world.

I have compiled over 800 quotations and short excerpts on this website. It is an eclectic mix but most of them are inspirational or insightful in nature and relate to knowledge, learning or personal development in some form.

If you love quotations as much as I do then you may wish to register to have a quote e-mailed to you once a week or more frequently by clicking on the button below and completing the form.

You can also subscribe to an RSS feed RSS Feed Gurteen Daily Knowledge Quotes that will deliver a quote to your newsreader each day. Or you can follow GurteenQuotes on Twitter and receive a quote there each day.

Quotations from Richard Branson:

 This "us and them" problem is exacerbated by our reliance on impersonal communications technologies.

One of a leader’s greatest challenges these days is getting people to actually talk to each other; one-on-one meetings and old-fashioned brainstorming are vital to the success of any growing business.

Improving the flow of information is just one part of the communications challenge; getting employees to actually listen to each other is much more difficult.

A big part of the problem is that the only word that gets more play than “they” is “I.”

 I never, ever thought of myself as a businessman. I was interested in creating things I would be proud of.
