Russell Baker
“The biographer's problem is that he never knows enough. The autobiographer's problem is that he knows too much.”
Russell Baker, Inventing The Truth: The Art And Craft Of Memoir

Jill Bryant
“A well-dressed, self-assured business executive steps into a quiet corner of the conference room, crowded with people. Everyone there is aware of her presence. She's dark-haired, petite, and alluring. She is quick to smile, and when she does, her whole face lights up. Her enthusiasm is infectious. Young men and women nod as they pass by, briefly breaking off their conversations with colleagues. The executive looks down at her compact electronic device and quickly texts: "Smile. Talk into the mic. Good luck.”
Jill Bryant, Phenomenal Female Entrepreneurs
