New Wisdom


Lately I’ve been reading the teachings of a hot new Chinese philosopher. His name is Lao Zee. Lao bears an eerie resemblance to the late Bruce Lee and his  insights are brilliant. So much so that I feel the need to share a few below:

On Patience:

If a recorded voice on the telephone says “Please wait for the next available customer service representative,” you are about to hear a forty-minute flute solo. Be ready.

On Honesty:

If your career counselor asks “What do you enjoy, what are you good at?” and all you can come up with is “I’m a good liar,” do not despair. You can always major in Public Relations. Lies are easier to profit from than the truth when corporations are involved.

On Leadership:

Leaders lead because they are smarter than you. For example, they often de-fund arts and music programs and push Math and Science. They do so because they know that Willie Nelson could also excel at preparing tax returns.

On Anger:

The people who are most outraged by a situation will be the ones who are most ignorant of the facts. They’ll also be watching Fox News.

On Trust:

Always trust your instincts. For example, if you’re skiing and you see a sign that says “Cliff”, just go for it. That’s probably the guy they named the run after.

Pretty sharp stuff. I can see why Lao is so popular.
