Those failures—and I don’t call them failures; they’re just speed bumps—are very important in any of our paths, and so I don’t look back and regret those at all. – @DavidLimbaugh Click To Tweet
Even if you think you’re a moron, even if you think you are ignorant about things, and even if you are right that you’re ignorant, you can learn. Don’t be afraid to take on something that you’re not sure you can do. – @DavidLimbaugh Click To Tweet
It’s probably healthier if someone does not seek fame. If you want to be successful, that’s an admirable, noble goal, to be the best you can be in whatever you pursue, but don’t do it for the purpose of fame. -@DavidLimbaugh Click To Tweet
