  • #8
    Seth Godin
    “If you’re remarkable, it’s likely that some people won’t
    like you. That’s part of the definition of remarkable.

    who stand out.”

    Joseph Campbell
    “Follow your bliss.
    If you do follow your bliss,
    you put yourself on a kind of track
    that has been there all the while waiting for you,
    and the life you ought to be living
    is the one you are living.
    When you can see that,
    you begin to meet people
    who are in the field of your bliss,
    and they open the doors to you.
    I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid,
    and doors will open
    where you didn't know they were going to be.
    If you follow your bliss,
    doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.”
    Joseph Campbell

    Jonah Sachs
    “Using Maslow’s insights, you can define higher-level values appropriate to your message, brand, and audience. Then, using what we learn from Joseph Campbell, you can turn those values into a resonant moral of the story and create a story structure that will appeal to the heroic potential in your audiences. These models show us a clear alternative to the dark, limited view of human nature inspired by Freud and brought to the marketplace by men like Edward Bernays.”
    Jonah Sachs, Winning the Story Wars: Why Those Who Tell (and Live) the Best Stories Will Rule the Future

  • #15

    Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
