 “Everything is a tale. What we believe, what we know. What we remember, even what we dream. Everything is a story, a narrative, a sequence of events with characters communicating an emotional content. We only accept as true what can be narrated.” (The Angel’s Game, Carlos Ruiz Zafón) One of my most favorite quotes forever…Great for donor communications…for life…


“Those who say it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.” (Chinese proverb)


“However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.”  (Winston Churchill)
