Jack Dixon - Inspirational Serial Killer?


At my place of employment, a new display is being made, featuring a so-called "inspirational quote". There are several quotes that are currently in the running for the display, including the following:

"If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results." - Jack Dixon

Breathtaking. Here's the problem though - nobody knows who Jack Dixon is. Due to my Googling "skillz" I was approached, and asked to try to find out some information on the elusive Mr. Dixon, with the comment, "We want to make sure he's not a serial killer or something."

I found a whole whack of different Jack Dixon's, but I couldn't link any of them to the above quote. When I told my fellow JTC board members of my predicament, Co-Co the Monkey decided to take a different approach, and look just for serial killer quotes so that we could rule Mr. Dixon out of belonging to that profession. We came across the following site:

http://www.angelfire.com/zine2/serialarchive/quotes.html

While no quotes by Mr. Dixon were found, we did find this one:

"There is no happiness without tears, no life without death. Beware! I am going to make you cry."

This quote is by that big goof-ball, the Red Spider himself, Lucian Staniak, proving why he wasn't a big hit with the ladies. For more info on Lucian's zany adventures, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucian_Staniak

The bottom line is this: I have no idea who that Jack Dixon guy is, and when we post our JTC display, it'll likely have a quote by ol' Lucian S on it.

Beware,
JohnnyM

For the inspirational quote I was hoping we would go with "Is this good for the company?"

I once did a work term at Nanticoke. They had hawaiian shirt day, but it was every second wednesday. It was a good chuckle to see the mechanics taking apart pumps, welding and doing general maintanaance in hawaiian shirts.

And Jack Dixon is an author~

Jack Dixon is also a Professor of Pharmacology, an actor (who can forget his turn in the classic "Fietsen naar de maan"?), a director, one of Rudolph Hess's prison guards and a baseball player.

Can you link him (the author) to the above quote? If not, this is just masturbation.

That link is a listing of quotes by authors. He is on it, but it doesnt have an autobiography.

So while I cant find a specific autobiography (he mustn eb very well known)... you at least know his proffesion, and that he isnt an axe murderer =p

and this is simply killing time at work, nto masturbation... thats what happens later tonight~ =p
