Another lovely quote from Terry Pratchett’s discworld novels, this time one for those of us in change management, from ‘Making Money’:

‘ Why are you always in such a hurry, Mr Lipwig?’

‘ Because people don’t like change. But make the change happen fast enough and you go from one type of normal to another.’


action, information, sleep

a nice line from ‘The Left Hand of Darkness’ by Ursula Le Guin:
“…when action grows unprofitable, gather information; when information grows unprofitable, sleep. I was not sleepy, yet.”

milan kundera quotes

a couple of lines i enjoyed today from “the unbearable lightness of being” by milan kundera translated from the czech by michael henry heim…

“Tereza knew what happens during the moment love is born: the woman cannot resist the voice calling forth her terrified soul; the man cannot resist the woman whose soul thus responds to his voice.” and
“People usually escape from their troubles into the future; they draw an imaginary line across the path of time, a line beyond which their current troubles will cease to exist.”
