" Keep things informal. Talking is the natural way to do business. Writing is great for keeping records and putting down details, but talk generates ideas. Great things come from out luncheon meetings which consist of a sandwich, a cup of soup, and a good idea or two. No martinis."
T. Boone Pickens

" To my mind, you cannot speak about the need for leadership within our communities without being prepared to take on responsibility yourself. It's not enough to point the finger at those who have let us down and to expect others to come forward and fix our problems. Nor can anyone afford to call themselves a leader unless they truly have the interests of our community at heart. Too many people like to think they are leaders and too many are identified by the media as leaders who are not really leaders at all."

" Never underestimate the power of words. They can bring joy or sadness. They can create smiles or frowns. They can make peace or they can make war. Spoken or written, words are a powerful tool, or even weapon. Words are free but should be spent wisely. They can inspire or they can destroy. Never, never under estimate the power of words!"
Copyright © 2009 Kent Henry
Too often words are used with little regard for the effect they may have on all who hear them. A statement made in the heat of the moment, or under distress, may very well inspire a listener for better or worst, even if that listener was not the intended target of those words.
