Over the course of the years, I have gathered some oneliners. They express the essence of what I believe in, stand for or see as true. Some of them, in other words, qualify as aphorisms. Even if they’re not that for you, they are to me.
It’s amusing to see that I wrote “You cannot bully people into greatness” in 2013. To mean: if you are a senior leader in an organisation, you cannot bully your company into greatness.
I suppose many people are starting to find out that that’s true for countries too.
What’s an aphorism that guides you?
