“A wise old owl lived in an oak, The more he saw the less he spoke, The less he spoke, the more he heard, Why aren’t we all like that old bird?”
Daniel Yergin, The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money, and Power

“A friendship founded on business is better than a business founded on friendship.”
Daniel Yergin, The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money, and Power

“A lesson in bringing about true changes of mind and heart comes from a Japanese functionary. By day, he crunched numbers that showed his country was approaching imminent energy crisis and helped to craft policy. By night, he weaved a novel in which a bureaucrat-hero helps see the country through to new energy sources. When the crisis came faster than he expected, he actually put the novel away because he did not want to make the burden of his countrymen worse. When the short-term crisis passed, he published his novel. It's phenomenal and well-timed success fueled the vision that inspired difficult change and maintained a sense of urgency.”
Daniel Yergin, The Quest: Energy, Security, and the Remaking of the Modern World
