12 12 12

12th of the 12th of the 12th. To many, today is a significant date. The beginning of the end, a time for renewal, of spiritual awakening. To some, just another date.

At Osca, this day marks a very exciting moment, for we have received the first delivery of an Ironing table ordered directly from the manufacturer in England. No longer dependent on the available choice and stock in Melbourne, finding the right table for our future Franchisees and confirming supply is a significant step as another component of the Osca Ironing Franchise Development is put in place.

To celebrate the day, 12 inspirational quotes from 12 inspirational people.

Steve Jobs

"We don't get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent.

And we've all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damned good. It better be worth it."

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure.
There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.”
Nicholas Sparks

“We sit silently and watch the world around us. This has taken a lifetime to learn.
It seems only the old are able to sit next to one another and not say anything and still feel content. The young, brash and impatient, must always break the silence.
It is a waste, for silence is pure. Silence is holy.
It draws people together because only those who are comfortable with each other
can sit without speaking.
This is the great paradox.”
Rick Riordan
an American author best known for writing the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series
“Humans see what they want to see.”
Wayne W. Dwyer
an American self-help author and motivational speaker.

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”
Eckhart Tolle
german born, canadian author of The Power of Now
“You are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold.
That is how important you are!”
