I was very unique as a child, dressed a certain way, acted a certain way, didn’t fit in with everybody.

To counteract that, strictly for self-defense, I wanted to get bigger.

John Cena

At my age, I’m not trying to score cool points. I’m just excited when I can speak to younger members of our audience in the WWE.

Love has no age, no limit; and no death.

John Galsworthy

Today when I think about diversity, I actually think about the word ‘inclusion.’ And I think this is a time of great inclusion. It’s not men, it’s not women alone.

Ginni Rometty

We have started something called the Corporate Services Corps. Now, it was modeled after the Peace Corps from long ago, the 1960s.

You know, globally aware, contribute, understand how to work in that environment, but do it on scale.

Ginni Rometty

And the reason I came to IBM was I think – I always say at a really early age, I learned you’ve got to be passionate about what you do. No matter what it is, you put too much, your heart and soul in it, you have to be passionate about it. You make too many sacrifices.

I have a 15-year-old daughter who thinks that I always had this self confidence that I have now at the age of 60. And I always tell her that what she is going through – the low self-esteem as a teenager – that is a right of passage.

Iman

That is something that my mother instilled in me at a very young age – to know my self-worth. And I have had times again and again in the fashion industry where all of that was tested and I rose to the occasion because I was told that I am worthy and I should be able to walk away from something that is not worthy of me.

Iman

As I approve of a youth that has something of the old man in him, so I am no less pleased with an old man that has something of the youth. He that follows this rule may be old in body, but can never be so in mind.
