“Watch out for people who tell you…”

“Watch out for people who tell you they know the right answer,” Mara added. “They may think they do, but often they’re wrong. Or they may just know that thinking is so hard, many people don’t want to do it. They want a leader they can trust…so they don’t have to do the hard work of thinking. That’s one type of leader you don’t want to follow.”

This is one in a series of quotations.

I’ve been working, from time to time, on a book of quotations for many years.  I call it, “The Mind Boggles”, from one of my favorite quotations.  I do source quotations a bit differently from a lot of people.  In the case of a work of a fiction, I consider that the character said the line…not the author.  As a bit of an author myself (in a minor way), I can tell you…my characters definitely say things that I would never say.  These are all quotations that I’ve collected myself: I’ve read the book, seen the TV episode, and so on. 

Hope you enjoy them!
