Bon mot for the week

"Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you."

William Arthur Ward (1921-1994)

Hmm... I like that. It's simple but deep, and should be on every teacher and manager's desk.

Why, OMG, how nice to hear from you again! It's been far too long.

Mr Ward, I gather, was a professional epigrammatist. I wonder if that could be a job for me?
