LS3P cofounder Frank Lucas kept a book of his thoughts as well as quotations from others that drive his approach to business. Here’s a sampling:

God made the world round so we couldn’t see too far down the road.

When you’re through changing, you’re through.

You’ve heard seeing is believing. Well, much more importantly, believing is seeing.

Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape.

As Vitruvius said in 27 BC, architecture must possess firmness, commodity and delight. I say people need the same qualities to have a real life.

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether 20 or 80 years old.

It is easier to do the right thing than to fix it later.

Little is louder or smarter than what you don’t say.

Never send a check back.

Health first, family second, job third.

It’s not the money — it’s the money.

Nice ‘em to death!
