Signed John Gotti: “It’s better to spend one day as a lion, than one hundred years as a lamb.”
“It’s better to spend one day as a lion, than one hundred years as a lamb.” - John Gotti
Not your typical CEO but a respected leader of men, and powerful person in his world. It’s estimated that during his reign as boss of the Gambino crime family, he brought in an estimated $500 million dollars.
This letter was hand written, by John Gotti, from prison sometime around 1999. His very distinct signature has been included by him at the end of the letter. The contents of the letter, to a female friend, were later profiled in the New York Times in June 2002(copy included). Next to this letter we’ve included a mugshot of Gotti from his 1968 arrest. Below the photo and letter we’ve included one of John Gotti’s most prolific quotes and something that obviously guided him in his decisions in life.
“It’s better to spend one day as a lion, than one hundred years as a lamb.”
