Your best bet would be to go to a good college library. Public probably wouldn't do. I took a folklore class in college and they have books with proverbs and the like and their origins. A couple of minutes searching in the database should get you to the correct section, then I would just scan titles. You might be able to find the info on-line somewhere, but I think your most likely to find it at a library...

It was probably W. Clement Stone. The complete quote is as follows:

You are a product of your environment. So choose the environment that will best develop you toward your objective. Analyze your life in terms of its environment. Are the things around you helping you toward success -- or are they holding you back?

I'm not trying to be a smartass, but whenever you want to find something like that just type "you are a product of your environment" in Google.

$5 says that's what IS300TRD did

I was too lazy to type all of that in Google, so I just "copied and pasted" and added a couple of other key search words. :lol:

In this day and age, if you can't figure out something as easy as a quote attribution, you need help. For serious.

Pardon my ignorance. What is the advantage of google?. Just curious.
Yahoo is a search INDEX, not a search ENGINE. Basically, you pay to be listed in Yahoo, it's filtered, and whenever possible they direct you to something they can make money on.

Google is fast and it actually spiders the web pulling content from pages giving you much better results.

If you're looking to buy something, Yahoo may get you better results, but other than that is sucks.

The image search on google rocks too.
