“Stop going for the easy buck and start producing something with your life. Create, instead of living off the buying and selling of others.”
-Martin Sheen as Carl Fox, Wall Street
For centuries European explorers navigated the globe on what was then the prevalent assumption that world was flat, and that a terrible and unimagined fate befell those who traversed too close to it’s edge.
