One of those quotes…

Can you remember the last time you heard or read a really good quote?

One that left you thinking about it for hours, or even days afterwards?

For me that happened on Friday, and it was from a family friend:

“Times elastic.

It’s a fixed thing.

I’m convinced of it.”

It was context as to just how quickly time it seemed that time had passed.

And for some reason it just really hit me.

It still does now.

That’s it. To add anymore would detract from its impact.

Finally, here’s proof that less is more…

“I have only made this letter longer because I have not had the time to make it shorter” – Blaise Pascal, 1657.

As the years roll by and the digital world advances that quote becomes more and more relevant to our busy newsfeeds.

Here’s to not silencing our inner-editors so we can deliver chopped, concise messages when we need to 🙂

Real talk

“I don’t trust someone who is nice to me but rude to the waiter. Because they’d treat me the same way if I was in that position”

– Muhammad Ali

Now, that’s some real talk right there.

As technology becomes more advanced and we become more lost in our phones, feeds and notifications I think social skills will slip.

Which means that, for those of us who still retain our social skills, we’ll be in a better position to influence our way to where we want to be.
