My Creed

I do not choose to be a common man, It is my right to be uncommon … if I can, I seek opportunity … not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen. Humbled and dulled by having the State look after me. I want to take the calculated risk; To dream and to build. To fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole; I prefer the challenges of life To the guaranteed existence; The thrill of fulfillment To the stale calm of Utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence Nor my dignity for a handout I will never cower before any master Nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect. Proud and unafraid; To think and act for myself, To enjoy the benefit of my creations And to face the world boldly and say: This, with God’s help, I have done All this is what it means To be an Entrepreneur.
—  Dean Alfange
Amor não é amor, se quando encontra obstáculos se altera, ou se vacila no mínimo temor. Amor é um marco eterno, dominante, que encara a tempestade com bravura; É astro que norteia a vela errante, cujo valor se ignora lá na altura. Amor não teme o tempo, muito embora, seu alfange não poupa a mocidade; Amor não se transforma de hora em hora, antes se afirma para a eternidade.
—  William Shakespeare.
