Everyone is my teacher

Everyone is my teacher. Some I seek. Some I subconsciously attract. Often I learn simply by observing others. Some may be completely unaware that I’m learning from them, and I bow deeply in gratitude.

Eric Allen

Careful with success

Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.
