My favorite quote:

"Is a domain a commodity? An investment? A safe haven? Real estate?
Yes and much more.

It is the most portable asset the world has ever known.
But bigger than all that is:
A Great Domain Name is an Equalizer!"

~ Rick Schwartz aka “The Domain King”

Another great quote

"Naming a business is a lot like laying the cornerstone of a building.
Once it’s in place, the entire foundation and structure is aligned to that original stone.
If it’s off, even just a bit, the rest of the building is off, and the misalignment becomes amplified.
So if you have that gnawing sense that choosing a name for your new business is vitally important
you’re right.
