A great quote applicable to every part of our daily life:
“We are prisoners of our own experience…it’s very, very difficult to dispel ignorance if you retain arrogance.”
– Sam Wilson, US Army (retired)
From “The Vietnam War” documentary series by Ken Burns & Lynn Novick.
“A king who is not a servant is merely a tyrant.
A warrior who is not tender is only a brute.
A mentor who is not wise is just a know-it-all.
A friend who is not faithful is at best an acquaintance,
or worse, a betrayer.”
– Stu Webber
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
— George Bernard Shaw
That quote makes me feel better about being someone who constantly agitates for change and seeks to improve things…some people consider me unreasonable at times. 🙂
