- R. Meredith Belbin:
Do you want a collection of brilliant minds or a brilliant collection of minds?
- Jason Kidd upon being drafted to the Dallas Mavericks:
We’re going to turn this team around 360 degrees.
- Robert Yates:
It is amazing what can be accomplished when nobody cares about who gets the credit.
- Robbert Oustin:
Life is like a hot bath. It feels good while you’re in it, but the longer you stay in, the more wrinkled you get.
- Price Cobb, American race-car driver, after winning a 1988 race:
Some days you’re the bug. Some days you’re the windshield.
- Brian Dyson, CEO of Coca Cola Enterprises from 1959-1994:
Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air. You name them – work, family, health, friends, and spirit – and you’re keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls – family, health, friends, and spirit are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged, or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.
Life is good, without it we’d all be dead.
- Chinese proverb:
Man who waits for roast duck to fly into mouth must wait very, very long time.
