|WHAT QUOTATIONS, MOTTOES, ETC., DO YOU KEEP BY YOUR DESK?|
The Headache: The demands of the banker's day just keep growing. Life is busy on all fronts and you have to take care of your customers, be they the public or, for those on support staff, your fellow bankers. It can be tough to keep your chin up, your shoulder to wheel, and all that. It helps to have reminders of good advice, good attitude, good ideas.
Our Question: What advice, quotations, slogans, or other helpful messages do you keep on your desk, on your bulletin board, or under your glass desktop?

What reminders, words of wisdom, or inspiration do you keep around your desk?
In 33 years of financial journalism, I've visited many bankers and financial officials in their offices, from chieftains of major institutions to community bankers to people very junior in their banks. One commonality is that most put something in their office to remind themselves of their moral touchstones; their goals and aspirations; or perspectives that help them keep on track, keep a sense of humor, or, sometimes, keep their sanity. Sometimes these reminders go on cards on a bulletin board. Some go on little plaques, or even screen savers.
