Instead, it helps to figure out what your “personal core purpose” is — to give you some solid ground to stand on.” – Yvonne DiVita
“Q: Is there a more important decision in life than the choice of a career or the choice of a spouse? A: Yes. The choice of which one is going to come first.” – Marilyn vos Savant
