eXtreme Management - QUOTES


Vi har altid haft en forkærlighed for One-Liners -- mundhæld og rappe replikker, der kan indramme en holdning eller en situation bogstaveligt talt forbilledligt:
Når forandringens vinde blæser, så bygger nogle læskure, andre bygger vindmøller.

Eller...
livet er en labyrint, hvor mange veje ender blindt
vinde vil hvo vender, hvor de blinde veje ender

Altså små rim eller 'ørehængere', der vil blive ved med at komme tilbage i det uendelige: Altid huske, aldrig sjuske.

eller
Hvis man ikke kan sige, hvad man mener, som kan man heller ikke mene hvad man siger

Nogle har det bedst på engelsk: If you keep a gold fish in a dark room, it'll eventually turn white
