The Brick’s Gonna Start Chipping

I like quotes. I know not everyone does, but I do. I love ’em. I’ve got books full of quotes that meant a great deal to me as a teenager that make me cringe a little now, but that’s the beauty of such collections – they double as time machines.

At any rate, this quote, posted today on Twitter by Rand Fishkin of SEOMoz from this blog post, is one that resonates with me right now. I’m guessing you’ll understand why.

I’m not giving up. Quite the opposite. As ugly and awkward as it is to take three strikes and refuse to walk away from the batters’ box, I plan to keep throwing myself against the wall of technology and behavior change and making life better until something gives. Either my head’s gonna crack open or the brick’s gonna start chipping.

Yes. That.

What’s inspiring you to take the next step forward today?

  1. Jessica, we met at TBEX and I’m a fellow Italy guy. I also am a proponent of a fine quote and yours today was solid grounds to be pursuant stubbornly of success.
    I am a Joseph Campbell acolyte so here is mine ” The dark night of the soul comes just before revelation.

    When everything is lost, and all seems darkness, then
    comes the new life and all that is needed.”
    Cheers to good work and good appetite!
