Margaret J. Wheatley

J. William Fulbright

I came seriously close to getting married four times, and each time I backed off in fear or for one reason or another. Each occasion was different, but in hindsight when I look at the people involved, it wasn't a bad thing what I did. I think it may have been more complex had the marriage taken place.

We all have to let go of the Prince Charming complex and realize he doesn't necessarily exist in the package we assume he'll come in.
We live in a culture that's been hijacked by the management consultant ethos. We want everything boiled down to a Power Point slide. We want metrics and 'show me the numbers.'
