People always, always, always do exactly what makes the most amount of sense to them based on their current understanding in the context of the moment. -- Gene Bellinger

The first rule of Fight Club is, don't talk about Fight Club! -- Brad Pitt
If you want to change how a person thinks, give up. You cannot change how another thinks. Give them a tool the use of which will gradually cause them over time to think differently. -- Buckminster Fuller
A leader is best when people barely know that he exists, not so good when people obey and acclaim him, worst when they despise him. Fail to honor people, They fail to honor you. But of a good leader, who talks little, when his work is done, his aims fulfilled, they will all say, "We did this ourselves." -- Lao Tzu
