Deep thoughts

"Act as if your adversaries are great teachers. Thank them for how crucial they've been in your education. Consider one more possibility: that the people who seem to slow us down and hold us back are actually preventing things from happening too fast."

Update:
A friend just reminded me of some Leonard Cohen lyrics that seem strangely related: "There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in."

Anne, I was sure I knew the first part ('Act as if your adversaries are great teachers'), but the web doesn't give me a source Who said that first?

You know, I really have no idea. A friend sent this and I believe it came from a book called Pronoia or something :)

Does the Road Runner really learn anything from the Coyote? I'm just thinking out loud.

this is like a summary of my whole phd experience. which lasted twice more than i had planned for and wanted (and had the patience for!) in the end though, i ended up having done what i'd wanted, and that is what matters...

Nice quote--I read Pronoia and it sounds like something out of there. Also have to nod my head based on my Phd experience this past year though wish I hadn't considered advisors to be adversaries...
