lunch with smart people

Toronto, 2015.05.22

Today I had lunch with one of those smart people who reflexively starts mentoring during a conversation. I hope to be like that when I grow up.

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

It has always seemed strange to me...The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.

-John Steinbeck, Cannery Row
