Richard H. Davis
Office politics are bloody-minded, but weak on content.
Like other men, I have sought honours and preferment, and often have obtained them beyond my wishes or hopes. Yet never have I found in them that content which I had figured beforehand in my mind. A strong reason, if we well consider it, why we should disencumber ourselves of vain desires.
An author is a fool who, not content with boring those he lives with, insists on boring future generations.
Charles de Montesquieu
In Paris, everybody wants to be an actor; nobody is content to be a spectator.
