Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.”   —   George S. Patton

(I’m sure, when he said it, it must have ended with an exclamation point!  Mega type-A personality there.  Guys like that can be very effective, and there are definitely times when you want someone like him, doing what they do.  But, generally, people like that just piss the rest of us off!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
