We're following up our Exit Interview Q & A series with a session next week with departing Guelph Public Library CAO Kitty Pope.
In helping to prepare possible questions for Pope, I have spent some addition time reviewing her unique blog.
Among the posts that were good reads was the one that yielded the headline for this post. It dealt with great aphorisms she has recently come across, including:
►Don’t fight the wave, learn to surf.
►Always be yourself because the people that matter don’t mind and the ones that mind, don’t matter.
►Grease is cheaper than parts.
►Money will buy a fine dog but only love will make her wag her tail.
►No one ever says “it’s only a game” when their team is winning.
►Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils.
►If you don’t have a sense of humour you probably don’t have any sense at all.
►A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you’re in deep water.
►Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it’s faced.
And my personal favorite these days….
►Politicians and diapers should be changed for the same reason.
Another Pope blog post I enjoyed related to her tips for detecting when someone was lying.
