    Mark Cuban us not someone I have always known about but he is starting to be someone I admire. I really like the quote work as if someone is working 24 hours a day to take it a from you. The ultimate thing I take from these quotes is the people that never give up and out work others, striving to be the best usually happen to wind up on top. Perseverance is the ultimate tool in reaching success. Loved reading these quotes.
