Some days, we really need a bit of inspiration to help push us along in growing our business and doing great work. Every business, startup or established, can use the lessons and ideas from others to help move forward.
“I have always liked real estate; farm land, pasture land, timber land and city property. I have had experience with all of them. I guess I just naturally like ‘the good Earth,’ the foundation of all our wealth.” ~Jesse H. Jones
“Look at market fluctuations as your friend rather than your enemy; profit from folly rather than participate in it.” ~Warren Buffett
“What we call real estate – the solid ground to build a house on – is the broad foundation on which nearly all the guilt of this world rests.” ~Nathaniel Hawthorne
“A man complained that on his way home to dinner he had every day to pass through that long field of his neighbour’s. I advised him to buy it, and it would never seem long again.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
“I would give a thousand furlongs of sea for an acre of barren ground.” ~William Shakespeare
“Next to the writer of real estate advertisements, the autobiographer is the most suspect of prose artists.” ~Donal Henahan
“The small landholders are the most precious part of a state.” ~Thomas Jefferson, American President

“He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.” ~The Book Proverbs 12 vs. 11
It’s tangible, it’s solid, and it’s beautiful. It’s artistic from my standpoint, and I just love real estate.
I just bought a small condo overlooking the water. The water is in a cup, one floor below my unit.
Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.
Franklin D Roosevelt
The best investment on earth is earth.
Real estate is the best investment on earth, however, when the music stops playing, which happens occasionally, don’t be the one left without a chair.
My own recipe for world peace is a bit of land for everyone.
Don’t wait to buy real estate, buy real estate and wait.
T Harv Eker
Buy real estate in areas where the path exists and buy more real estate where there is no path, but you can create your own.
Find out where the people are going and buy the land before they get there.
William Penn Adair
If you circle above Central Park at night in a helicopter, you’re looking down at the most expensive real estate in the world. It’s the American Monopoly board.
