( Leadership nuggets from Abraham Lincoln from the LinkedIn profile of Lucy P.Marcus )

1. “It is true that you may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all of the time; but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.”

2. “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”

3. “Character is like a tree and reputation its shadow. The shadow is what we think it is and the tree is the real thing.”

4. “I don’t like that man. I must get to know him better.”

5. “He has a right to criticize, who has a heart to help.”

6. “I am not concerned that you have fallen — I am concerned that you arise.”

7. “The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.”

8. “Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.”

9. “No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.”

10. “If you once forfeit the confidence of your fellow citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem.”

11. “The best way to predict your future is to create it”

12. “Those who look for the bad in people will surely find it.”

13. “Live a good life. In the end it is not the years in a life, but the life in the years.”

14. “People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

15. “Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally.”

16. “Whatever you are, be a good one.”

The Universal Studios has seven factions namely:

  • Hollywood
  • New York City
  • Sci Fi City
  • Ancient Egypt
  • The Lost World
  • Far Far Away
  • Madagascar

# Hollywood & New York city are just photoshoot places. No rides here. Few shows can be seen in progress, at times

# Sci-Fi City, it is the TRANSFORMERS region. Those guys rule here. The best section of the Universal Studios. Your entrance fee of SD $70 to the Universal Studios, is a perfect worth in this area alone. The MUST-SEE area. You can board a ride for infinite times. No separate ride charges.

# Ancient Egypt & The Lost World are pretty good areas for both adults & kids. Don’t miss out The Revenge of the Mummy Ride in the Ancient Egypt section.

# The Far Far Away & Madagascar are children-play zones. Nothing exciting for the adults.
