Learning Business and Real Estate From Board Games

Famous quotes containing the words board, games, estate, learning, business and/or real:

    And they heaved a mighty breath, every soul on board but me,
    As they saw her nose again pointing handsome out to sea;
    But all that I could think of, in the darkness and the cold,
    Was just that I was leaving home and my folks were growing old.
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)

    As long as lightly all their livelong sessions,
    Like a yardful of schoolboys out at recess
    Before their plays and games were organized,
    They yelling mix tag, hide-and-seek, hopscotch,
    And leapfrog in each other’s way all’s well.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The difference between de jure and de facto segregation is the difference open, forthright bigotry and the shamefaced kind that works through unwritten agreements between real estate dealers, school officials, and local politicians.
    Shirley Chisholm (b. 1924)

    Paul, thou art beside thyself; much learning doth make thee mad.
    Bible: New Testament Acts, 26:24.

    Said by Festus, the Roman Procurator.

    Most of us have felt barriers between ourselves and our fathers and had thought that going it alone was part of what it meant to be a man. We tried to get close to our children when we became fathers, and yet the business of practicing masculinity kept getting in the way. We men have begun to talk about that.
    Frank Pittman (20th century)

    When you can use dirty words in every situation with everyone, that’s a real big liberation.
    Lina Wertmuller (b. 1928)
