“Keep in mind that even if someone stabbed you in the back ten years ago, they still have the knife.”
“Let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
And stand together, yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.”
– Kahlil Gibran
What’s really being said is what’s been left unsaid.
“Put yourself out there and there’ll be people who’ll tell you why they hate your work. Pay no attention.
If they care, they will attempt to fix it. And, when they do, they’ll realize your work was perfect all along – in ways they weren’t able to comprehend.”
“When the unreasonable aren’t getting their way they call the reasonable stubborn.”
– Michael Lipsey
