“It is always wrong to wield power if you are not prepared to accept the consequences for your actions and do the work it takes to use your strength and authority with precision and fairness. A good leader is many people’s servant. lf being trained to become a perfect servant sounds too humiliating, you are not strong enough to withstand the temptations of wielding power.”

“The result of negotiation is a contract, and contracts provide no protection for the weaker/poorer party signatory to it. ... Contractual protections are only enforceable by the application of money, lawyers, courts and time… For this reason I don’t use contracts in any professional dealings, and I am convinced this is the best way to maintain transparent and amicable relationships.”
