A young lady friend of mine was showing me a freebie notebook from a magazine. For a covermount it was remarkably good quality. A hardback, with elastic band and page marker, every other one of its innumerous blank pages had a quote on the footer. Their idea was to inspire along the theme of Destiny. Here’s my dodgy mobile phone pic of it.
On the back cover, there was nothing but this quote.
“Destiny is not a matter of chance, it’s a matter of choice.
It’s not a thing to be waited for, it’s a thing to be achieved.”
– William Jennings Bryan
I had to look the chap up and was of course gutted to discover that he was not only a long-gone American politician, but also one whom appeared to have had lost his grip on reality. Nevertheless, I thought what a cracking quote for this “inspirational notebook”.
Come on all us super-sellers. No sitting around hoping. Make it happen. Now.
