Both my school district and our nation have been going through some trials that involve leadership.
The school district enjoys excellent leadership under our superintendent, but we’re currently afflicted by leadership shortcomings of supposed civic partners in the task of educating our community’s children. And I don’t think I have to elaborate on our national leadership situation.
Which brings me to a couple of quotations I’m excited to share…
One of my favorite authors, whose work elevates the “thriller” to “real” literature (according to critics), placed a couple of quotations in the front of his latest book that absolutely rezzzzonate with me.
The first quote is one you’ve seen before on this blog, the second is from one of White’s regular characters, a bright and worldly uber-hippie with a deep spiritual bent.
Here ya go…
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. (Edmund Burke)
It’s easier to be a genuinely humane person if you can afford to hire your own personal son of a bitch. (S.M. Tomlinson)
That second one tickles my irony bone.
