  • J. shared from President Barack Obama: The Kindle Singles Interview (Kindle Single) by David Blum
    At the end of our interview, he read aloud an Amazon leadership principle painted on the wall behind him – "Vocally Self-Critical" – and muttered: "Huh ... I guess."
    Note: Obama, reluctant Amazonian.
  • J. shared from Doc: A Memoir by Dwight Gooden, Ellis Henican
    “Drug and alcohol dependency is a sickness. It isn’t like sticking up a gas station. It isn’t like committing a crime, even though many Americans view it that way.” On that topic at least, George was way ahead of his time.
    Note: George Steinbrenner, compassionate human being.
  • J. shared from Casino Royale (James Bond) by Ian Fleming
    ‘You must forgive me,’ he said. ‘I take a ridiculous pleasure in what I eat and drink. It comes partly from being a bachelor, but mostly from a habit of taking a lot of trouble over details. It’s very pernickety and old-maidish really, but then when I’m working I generally have to eat my meals alone and it makes them more interesting when one takes trouble.’
    Note: James Bond, foodie.
