    Well, here’s something I didn’t expect to see today…these are all great quotes from great people, but the one that means the most to me is the quote from Jimi Hendrix, who had such a great influence on me and inspired me to pick up a Stratocaster and learn to play guitar.

    “When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”

    A beautiful statement, a wonderful goal, and something we should all help the world to achieve.
