 BEST OF…a collection of some of my favorite quotes.

I love quotes…but, in the end, knowledge has to be converted to action or it’s worthless. – Tony Robbins


Quotes – I wanted to take a ‘time out’ of sorts to look at a variety of great quotes.

Sometimes it helps to pause and reflect and think about things overall – to step back and look at the big picture.

Also, more importantly, one must realize that any education, any knowledge, anything is not of much use without action.

In other words, we can all read these quotes but we don’t unleash the magic until we actually take action and use the motivation and wisdom to actually do something.

Best wishes to you with creating magic in your life.


Frey Freyday was actually born out of something I created called “Words To Live By” (WTLB). Going forward, I will now not only share the quotes, as you may be used to receiving, but also a related (WTLB). In 1999, when we had our first daughter, I was contemplating how I would raise my new beautiful child, and I was thinking about how I can best educate her and my other children about values, morals, and other key thoughts about life. School offers education. Religion offers some values and morals. Parents offer most of it, sometimes intentionally, sometimes accidentally.

So I created a (WTLB) book, like a dictionary, which lists things like honesty, love, persistence, etc. with a definition that I created, with my wife’s input. I then turned it into a workbook with one word per page and space below for notes. For years we would discuss with my two daughters and they would draw pictures and make notes in the blank space. I may share some of those images with you. As they got older, they were less inclined to draw and more open to quotes and references from adults, hence where Frey Freyday came from….
