Humor, Society, Leadership, Forgiveness


Jack Benny
I don’t deserve this award, but I have arthritis and I don’t deserve that either.


Henry Brooks Adams
Society is immoral and immortal; it can afford to commit any kind of folly, and indulge in any kind of vice; it cannot be killed, and the fragments that survive can always laugh at the dead.


Scott Raymond
I am slowly being converted to the principle that you can’t motivate people to do things, you can only demotivate them. The primary job of the manager is not to empower but to remove obstacles.


Russell Banks
We forgive once we give up attachment to our wounds.
