Message on a billboard?

I was listening to an interview with Seth Godin on the Tim Ferriss podcast. One of the reasons I am doing this daily blog (well not so daily, there is never a post on Saturday for religious reasons) is based on Seth Godin’s daily blog.

One of the questions he asked him was what message he would put on a billboard. He said the best message on a billboard was by marketing legend name Jay Levinson that said “free coffee next exit.” 🙂

On a more serious note, I was thinking about this and though no one is asking me, on mine it would be a quote from Zig Ziglar that I say is a master quote, which I define as a quote that encapsulates a universal truth. On this blog, I also mention another master quote in my post The Enemy of Art. Zig Ziglar’s quote is “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.”

Then today, I came across this quote by the Lubavitcher Rebbe which expresses a similar sentiment. Here it is “Teach and you will learn, give and you will receive, love and you will be loved. In this world, there must not be any person, place, or thing, that only gives or only gets, and if there is, it is for us to heal.”

I really love both of those quotes. Hope you do as well.
