“The average man don’t like trouble and danger.”
– Mark Twain
Would you rehire – or work for – someone who ran your business into the ground? And who always does what’s best for himself or herself – even when it hurts the company? And whose reckless decisions put you in danger? And who spends more time tweeting than working? If the answer is no: Why the hell would we ever rehire Donald Trump for another four years?
– Michael Bloomberg
We are infinitely greater than our minds and we are infinitely more than our images of ourselves. One of the sad things today is that so many people are frightened by the wonder of their own presence. They are dying to tie themselves into a system, a role, or to an image, or to a predetermined identity that other people have actually settled on for them. This identity may be totally at variance with the wild energies that are rising inside in their souls. Many of us get very afraid and we eventually compromise. We settle for something that is safe, rather than engaging the danger and the wildness that is in our own hearts.
– John O’Donohue
