There are meetings which, when cancelled at the last minute, give one an ecstatic feeling of having cheated death for a little longer.
—Alain de Botton, Twitter, April 21, 2010


“There are times when it is absolutely essential to confer, but I incline to believe that when it is not necessary to confer, it is necessary not to confer. So much easier to read the views of others nicely trimmed for economy’s sake, than to sit with a dozen people who in some cases aren’t given the time necessary to develop their thought, in other cases don’t have sufficient thought to justify the time they are given to express it.”
—William F. Buckley, Windfall: The End of an Affair (New York: Random House, 1992), 23–24.
