I steal other people’s wise words. That’s important. And I mix them with the stories I love.
When you listen to others they teach.
A few words to live by…
Here are some wise words of those I respect and admire.
“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
(author of the Strategist’s Handbook)
“To be young, really young, takes a very long time.” – Pablo Picasso
(Pablo and Antoine know the truth of the universal archetype)
“There is nothing so dangerous for anyone who has something to hide as conversation! A human being cannot resist the opportunity to reveal themself and express their personality, which conversation gives. Every time he will give himself away.” – Dame Agatha Christie
(I love detective novels & Hercule Poirot)
“I am always doing things I can’t do – that’s how I get to do them.” – Pablo Picasso
(Is there anything he can’t do? I don’t know, but I wish we had a conversation.)
Let’s start a conversation.
