Business Rules or Facts:
“Content is not king.” – Read “Content Critical”, saying that content is king is the same as saying product is king, which is not the right “conversion” from typical “Customer is king” statement.
“Hope is not a strategy.” – Thomas Bushnell, Google. @ LinuxCon 2012. “Hope is not a strategy. Most people hope that things won’t fail. Hoping computers won’t fail is bad You will die someday. Your PC will crash someday. You have to design for failure.”
Other Interesting Quotes I like:
