Biz Stone Quotes
I am reading the book authored by the co-founder of Twitter, none other than Biz Stone. In my honest opinion, anyone who ever wish to be an entrepreneur should read this book. It is also highly recommended for those who wish to excel at their current jobs or those who are simply tiered of mediocrity.

This guy is a college drop out who landed a job in Google and later left this job (which most of us consider a dream job) to create Twitter. So when he talks about success mantra, I think one should pay attention. Let me quote a small excerpt from the above book.
